About the Author

Betty Edwards speaks regularly at universities, art schools, and companies. Now retired from her position as professor emeritus of art at California State University in Long Beach, Edwards received her doctorate from UCLA in art, education, and the psychology of perception. Dr. Edwards has been profiled on the Today show and in Time, among other magazines and newspapers. She lives in California.


This new edition of the hugely popular and influential drawing manual first published over 30 years ago incorporates new findings from neuroscience, like the discovery of brain plasticity, together with the tried-and-true exercises included in past editions. Edwards (art, emerita, California State Univ., Long Beach) explains the value of accessing the brain's more creative right hemisphere and has isolated five perceptual skills readers can develop to begin harnessing their right brain power to improve their drawing. She makes a strong case that these exercises will improve not only practitioners' realistic drawing capabilities but their perceptual and general problem-solving skills as well. VERDICT This fascinating read is recommended. (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
