Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain

We offer two class formats, The 5-Day and The Weekly Class

What it is About

Based on the best-selling drawing instruction book, and synthesizing a wide range of knowledge with decades of research on achievement and success, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain reveals a truly groundbreaking idea – the power of perception.

Understand How You’re Seeing.

Contrary to common belief that success depends on the talents and abilities we are born with or without, this course will show you how a simple insight into perception can change your beliefs and impact your ability to master skills previously thought impossible.

Not only a (program) about drawing, it is about living. This brilliant approach to the teaching of drawing … emancipates.
– Los Angeles Times

More than just drawing.

Using drawing as a tool (yes, the ‘magical talent’ called drawing), you will gain an understanding of your brain and different modes of perception. Because the ability to draw depends on the ability to see, through drawing you will in fact be training yourself to control perception and develop a perceptual language to push past assumptions, reframe problems and create possibilities.

As you are learning this new skill, your brain is also literally changing with learning. This explains why learning to draw ignites a change in mindset and growth in our abilities to learn new skills, persevere through challenges and turn them into accomplishment.
