An increased public and academic interest in drawing and sketching, both traditional and digital, has allowed drawing research to emerge recently as a discipline in its own right. In light of this development, "Writing on Drawing" presents a collection of essays by leading artists and drawing researchers that reveal a provocative agenda for the field, analyzing the latest work on creativity, education, and thinking from a variety of perspectives. "Writing on Drawing" offers consolidation, discussion, guidance and an agenda to a fragmented community in the form of essays by international drawing makers and drawing researchers. Discussion extends to creativity, education and thinking, all with multi-disciplinary viewpoints. An essential resource for artists, scientists, designers, and engineers, this volume offers consolidation, discussion, and guidance for a previously fragmented discipline.Drawing research is emerging as a discipline in its own right. Very few resources exist to support the international community which consists of artists, scientists, designers, engineers - both within academia and in practice. It includes essays by leading drawing makers and drawing researchers with international reputations. Steve Garner is Director of the international Drawing Research Network. This currently has 300 members internationally and a well visited web site.
