I love the Think Different Apple ads. Particularly the uproar the grammar geeks sent up when they misunderstood the headline and thought it should have been Think Differently.
One of my gifts is breaking challenges into component parts and rearranging/reassembling those parts to achieve a goal. I think both different and differently. I’d like to do both better. In thinking about this goal I’ve decided that seeing differently might help be think better.
So, I gave myself a Christmas present: art classes. From 10:00 AM to 12:30 everyday this week I’m going to take a Drawing Fundamentals Intensive at the Visual Arts Center.
What little I know about how artists draw is that they see the underlying architecture of their subjects as well as the relationship of components to one another.
I have no idea whether or not I’ll be able to draw any better by the end of the week, but I do hope to gain some insight into what artists look for when they take pencil in hand and begin to sketch. My expectation is I’ll raise my consciousness of things I may have been previously unaware.
What have you got planned to help you get a new perspective on your world?
