“Over the last forty years, many educators, decision-makers, and even some parents have come to regard the arts as peripheral, and let’s face it, frivolous—especially the visual arts, with their connotation of ”the starving artist” and the mistaken concept of necessary talent”
Betty Edwards, The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain

You will find instructions for making the viewfinders here A small mirror: About 5" × 7" that can be taped to a wall, or any available wall mirror.”

“Писатель Джулиан Дюгид описывает процедуру, предложенную ему человеком, с которым он познакомился на борту корабля: «— Вы хотите писать рассказы? — спросил он. — Нет ничего легче. Ваш инстинктивный разум помнит каждое событие, когда-либо происходившее с вами... Он сам создаст из ваших переживаний сюжет. Вам нужно лишь потереть лампу.
— А техника этого? — спросил я.
— Наш инстинктивный разум никогда не спит. Это только высшие уровни мозга отключаются, когда мы ложимся спать. Вы достаточно легко можете проверить это на себе.
— Звучит интересно. Что я должен сделать?
— Это действительно интересно. Перед тем как отключиться, просто сообщите своему подсознанию, чего вы хотите. Наутро рассказ будет готов... Кстати, — сказал он чуть погодя, — здесь нечего бояться... Раб лампы — ваш слуга... И было бы неплохо звать его по имени.
Я решил, что буду звать этого незнакомца, таящегося внутри меня, Помощником».
Дюгид
«Меня убедили», 1941”
