“Think about this: walk into a class of primary school children and – with the teacher’s permission, of course – ask the six-year-olds how many can draw. Every hand will go up. Now ask how many can read: perhaps two little hands will go up. Now walk into a secondary school and ask the 16-year-olds the same two questions. How many can draw? Maybe three hands. How many can read? Every hand.”
Dan Roam explains why drawing can be such a powerful work tool.
