Seeing is Forgetting: Insights from Meditation for Better Observational Drawing. Focusing on the importance of "practice" in both drawing and meditation, we will be comparing important lessons from both disciplines as we engage in perspective-shifting techniques of observational drawing, as well as sitting in guided meditations. No prior experience necessary, and all skill-levels welcome.
