Learn To Draw “Drawing is more than a tool for rendering and capturing likenesses. It is a language, with its own syntax, grammar, and urgency. Learning to draw is about learning to see. In this way, it is a metaphor for all art activity. Whatever its form, drawing transforms perception and thought into image and teaches us how to think with our eyes.” 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White
