The Talent Myth: Drawing Is A Teachable Skill
Learning to draw doesn't have to depend on talent- it is a teachable skill, just like reading or mathematics. As educators, we've propagated the talent myth, but with Graphite Squad drawing curriculum, your 5th-8th graders can learn college level visual skills that will enable them to communicate with the universal language of drawing. Let's teach drawing step by step and equip our students with Spatial Reasoning & Design Thinking skills that will empower them for the 21st Century.
