Thoughts from Frederick Franck, author of the classic The Zen of Seeing

Learning to draw is…

– an intensifier of firsthand seeing, as a catalyst of awareness that makes us independent of our serfdom to technology.

– being reminded again and again of what we somehow know, but constantly forget

– reconnecting with what we observe, and thereby reconnecting with ourselves

– having no pretensions

– seeing what is in front of you for the first time

– undoing the year-long aesthetic alienation brought about by education…

– regaining a sense of simplicity
