The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain

The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain was first published in 1979, it hit the New York Times bestseller list within two weeks and stayed there for more than a year. In 1989, when Dr. Betty Edwards revised the book, it went straight to the Times list again. Now Dr. Edwards celebrates the twentieth anniversary of her classic book with a second revised edition.

Over the last decade, Dr. Edwards has refined her material through teaching hundreds of workshops and seminars. Truly The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, this edition includes:

  • the very latest developments in brain research
  • new material on using drawing techniques in the corporate world and in education
  • instruction on self-expression through drawing
  • an updated section on using color
  • detailed information on using the five basic skills of drawing for problem solving

Translated into thirteen languages, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain is the world's most widely used drawing-instruction guide. People from just about every walk of life—artists, students, corporate executives, architects, real estate agents, designers, engineers—have applied its revolutionary approach to problem solving. The Los Angeles Times said it best: Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain is "not only a book about drawing, it is a book about living. This brilliant approach to the teaching of drawing . . . should not be dismissed as a mere text. It emancipates."

Synopsis:

"Translated into thirteen languages, with more than 2.5 million copies sold, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain is the world's most widely used drawing instruction book."--BOOK JACKET. "This twentieth-anniversary edition of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain has been dramatically revised, with more than fifty percent new material, including: recent developments in brain research that relate to drawing; new insights on the use of drawing techniques in the corporate world and in education; instruction on self-expression through drawing; ways to step beyond black-and-white drawing into color; and detailed advice on applying the five basic skills of drawing to solve problems."--BOOK JACKET.
