Drawing on the Computer: Turning a Left Brain Activity Back into a Right Brain Activity.
This paper examines the process of drawing, including theories of perception and visualization. The intent is to apply knowledge of teaching drawing as a right brain activity to students using the computer and overcome the limitations that drawing on the computer imposes on students. The paper identifies the following domains of drawing: (1) visualization; (2) focus; (3) selection; (4) construction--visual and conceptual; (5) process--skill; and (6) reflection and evaluation. The study provides observations of students drawing on the computer to those who draw in the traditional manner, applying those six domains to the analysis. The paper offers examples of how students can experiment with computer drawing to enhance their focus and perception. (EH)
