Author(s): Peter Jenny
Forget to Draw is the next book in our successful Learning to See series, which teaches readers not only to pick up a pen and start drawing, but to see the world that surrounds them with fresh eyes. Each book in the series presents a short introduction by Jenny and twenty-two easy exercises, with each book focusing on a different aspect. In Forget to Draw, Jenny encourages readers to return to the kind of carefree drawing outsider artists and children perform and to focus on the joy of drawing rather than the end result. Shedding the goal of making one's drawings look "real" will help readers discover their individual style.
Peter Jenny is professor emeritus and chair of visual design at the famous ETH Zurich in Switzerland. He is the author of numerous books, including Drawing Techniques, Figure Drawing, and The Artist's Eye, published by Princeton Architectural Press.
