Drawing is the most democratic of all art forms; it is a common denominator for people worldwide.
Drawings are valued not only for their accessibility but also for their intimacy and their use in working through ideas. This is called visual thinking, and along with much practice at making and looking at drawings comes the more evolved stage of visual literacy.
The process of drawing develops a heightened awareness of the visual world, an awareness that is both subjective (knowing how you feel about things) and objective (understanding how things actually operate.)
It provides a new format for stating what you already know about the world and a system for learning and understanding what you don’t. Drawing teaches you to observe, distinguish and relate.
