View more details about my video and workbook here

Many pupils lack self-confidence and struggle with learning. Even those who are more successful are almost certainly not using their full potential. The ability to draw, when applied to powerful learning and memory techniques, is an incredibly useful skill. Something special happens in our awareness when we see a drawing develop before our very eyes. However, the use of ‘live’ drawing, whether by the teacher or learner, is an under -used device.

The problem is that most pupils do not believe they can draw and this seems especially true the older they are. However, these workshops help pupils to discover that everyone can draw effectively when they know how.

In easy-to-learn steps they will soon build their skill and confidence to be able to draw very effective pictures numerous uses including revising for examinations.

“Every child and student can learn to draw simple cartoons and symbols well enough make ideas memorable”says Graham Shaw.
