Drawing for Science, Invention & Discovery: Even if you can’t draw
About This Book
This book is aimed at all the scientists, mathematicians, engineers, pioneers and thinkers out there who understand the value of creative thinking in their field. It identifies some of the key cognitive processes that drive innovation, invention and discovery. They are compared and then illustrated, the cognitive processes behind them explained, or exercises provided so that you might improve these skills in yourself or your students.
Nine processes are discussed from both a STEM and an art perspective: observation, collaboration, knowledge, serendipity, methodical, alternative viewpoints, trial & error, adaptation and visualization.
It is not a ‘How to Draw’ book, nor do you need to possess any drawing or art ability yourself in order to do the exercises. What it will do is show how the visual, semantic process of drawing is essential to our progress and a language in its own right, not a gift for the talented few.
‘I liked this book so much I wrote the foreword for it. I think it's an essential read for any science teacher or lecturer - and contains practical exercises too.'

As an NSEAD registered art consultant, I offer a friendly, professional art consultancy service to schools, from early years right through to Secondary GCSE. I've worked with infant schools to improve art assessment, delivered primary school CPD on skills and progression, worked with Subject Leaders to raise attainment and done whole school, secondary art department audits including formal lesson observations and department reviews. My over-arching strategy is to support the professional development of hard working professionals with positive and constructive advice for improvement.
My consultancy bookings are now being handled by Iain Simper of the Learning Partnership. For enquiries email Iain here
