The Importance of Drawing [on Your Child’s School Lunch Bag]

BY PETER EXLEY
@ VOL 1 ON OCT 01, 2015

“Research has illustrated that 90% of us will do almost all of the drawings we will make in our lifetime before the age of 10. That’s the threshold we pass when someone tells us that we aren't good at art or math or science.”

In The Importance of Drawing [on Your Child’s School Lunch Bag] from PechaKucha Night Batavia’s first volume, Speaker Peter Exley discusses the importance of thoughtful and deliberate sketches. We all spent time in our youth expressing ourselves through drawing. At some point, many of us turned our attentions to things less creative. Peter did not. Here’s why.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, February 16th, 2016.
