Drawing as a form of learning

“Drawing is a form of learning, by drawing something it changes how we look and how we relate to the thing we draw, it creates a deeper connection, an embodied experience beyond mere visual or cerebral knowledge. By giving form and a motor experience to it, the processes and functions of memory are altered. Drawing enables a different kind of knowing, anamnestic and forever stored as part of our DNA.”
