Presence, Not Praise: How To Cultivate a Healthy Relationship with Achievement

Presence, Not Praise: How To Cultivate a Healthy Relationship with Achievement | Drawing to Learn. Drawing to Share. | Scoop.it

"I once watched Charlotte with a four-year-old boy, who was drawing. When he stopped and looked up at her — perhaps expecting praise — she smiled and said, ‘There is a lot of blue in your picture.’ He replied, ‘It’s the pond near my grandmother’s house — there is a bridge.’ He picked up a brown crayon, and said, ‘I’ll show you.’ Unhurried, she talked to the child, but more importantly she observed, she listened. She was present." Stephen Grosz

Lisa Hosokawa's insight:

This post is not focused on drawing, but the brief quotation from Grosz about Charlotte Stiglitz captures the best way to be with drawing children.

Drawing to Learn. Drawing to Share.
We need to think constantly in terms of “drawing to learn” and “drawing to share”; to identify which is one is primary at any given moment; and to practice, guide, or provide feedback accordingly. Failure to do this can result in the extreme consequence of total rejection of drawing as an option for mark-making. Much research has already been done. We just need to pull the threads together, weave, and believe.

"In some work in Rwanda on developing a policy on violence against women and children, I spent time with young people in all regions of the country. They brainstormed, they performed through role-playing, and they drew pictures. It was their drawings that I shared with policy makers. "

“He started by drawing shapes, focusing on colour and texture and placement without a specific recipe plan,” Littman said, adding the chef would then reverse-engineer dishes based on this exercise in form rather than content.

“There’s a long history related to art and food. His drawings aren’t necessarily great representations of food, they are used more like mental maps or flowcharts to visualise the way that he thinks.”

Dean Meyers's curator insight, December 30, 2013 5:28 PM

Visual thinking starts at home... a twist on a well known phrase, but apt. Many people who don't classify themselves as visual thinkers will sheepishly admit to doodling while on a call, or having drawn endless circles, spirals and other free-form lines while in the classrooom.


However, there are new thoughts about these random and supposedly purposeless drawings: doodling, looked upon with derision (note the story in the article about Ronald Reagan's doodling as being a sign of his lack of interest/attention) really can be a great tool for improving memory, stimulating new ideas, and helping clarify thinking in general.


This article  lightly covers applied visual thinking, from basic and very personal doodling to graphic recording, sketchnotes and graphic facilitation.


Mentioned in the story are Sunni Brown,[note: Sunni is a personal friend and doodling/graphic facilitation colleague] a major proponent of doodling for the purposes just described above, Dan Roam, author of Back of the Napkin, and David Sibbett, probably the chief architect of the practice of Graphic or Visual Facilitation, and founder of the The Grove, one of the earliest if not the first company dedicated to graphic recording and graphic facilitation.


The article suggests that there are probably thousands of graphic facilitators in the world. The International Forum of Visual Practitioners (IFVP) currently has just under 300 registered members, but the Graphic Facilitation group page on Facebook has over 1500 members registered.


Doodling isn't a waste of time, and can be the starting place for building thinking skills that apply across every field of knowledge.

"And if you are going to say that the first perspective is the one that we actually see most of the time, when we look at a coffee cup… that it is the angle we are used to seeing the cup on our kitchen tables, I will tell you that this research has been done on many objects. For example, people were shown pictures of horses from various angles and perspectives and they most quickly recognized it as a horse when it was from this same canonical perspective."

Body Object - Interweaving with the world: Drawing - the shift from analysis to empathy.

"The process of drawing is fascinating.
It's all about learning to change how we see. It can help shift the way of experiencing the world from something analytical to something more empathetic, and it's that latter viewpoint that helps us connect with our surroundings and transform our interactions with the world.

For a while I've been thinking about how valuable this shift could be to the development of  our social, economical and ecological systems.  If we could be more connected, more empathetic in our interactions both with each other and our surroundings perhaps it could help shift how we approach our lives in a really significant way. We might start caring more about how our actions and decisions affect others."

"How do I bring drawing into the heart of classroom learning — not as a way to develop artists, but as a thinking skill, as a language that could help students solve problems and enter different curricular material, be it a math problem or a science experiment or the journal of a historical figure? When students enter kindergarten, drawing is a natural language — stories, ideas, discoveries naturally erupt from the tip of a pencil. But quickly, students are required to learn and master writing, reading, and math. The drawing mind is shut down."

"The goal for the HATCH project is to bring together researchers and practitioners in order to explore, expand, uncover and incubate themes around drawing. HATCH is a forum for practical experimentation, collaborative initiatives, discussion and criticism, and exhibition and exposition. We hope to create and encourage an environment for drawing - and drawing conversation - that reflects the broadest investigation of methods and outcomes."
