The act of drawing enables children to make sense of the world. It empowers them to imagine and make the impossible possible at least on paper. Let us see how drawing can be a powerful mode of discovery and creativity.
In this concurrent session, the three Drawing NLC teacher-presenters will share how they have used the drawing exercises in the Drawing Inspiration Resource Pack to engage their primary level students.
