It's Easy To Draw! Why Is It Hard To Draw? | Michael Rastovich | TEDxRichland

Why was it easier to draw when we were children? The world around us is constantly changing, along with how we see it. Drawing that more complicated world can bring challenges. Michael Rastovich became self­aware at a very young age and set upon the journey of an artist even before the age of five. Living in a rural area as a teen, at a time when information and instruction was scarce, he sent away and waited weeks for supplies and instruction. In his twenties, he studied with master artist Siegfred Hans & Howard Wexler in New Mexico and lived in an adobe hut in the middle of the desert while learning his craft. Being a Renaissance man, he gathered together from varied sources all of the materials to build his own etching press and proceeded to create beautiful and compelling etchings. He eventually worked for a museum design company in Portland, Oregon, and using his exceptional drawing skills, he created conceptual drawings for museums around the U.S. His animations he creates for training companies rival those in quality of Disney. He has spent his entire life celebrating art and being fully immersed in the artists’ craft and way of life.

Draw like a child; see like a master | Kate Hayward | TEDxSanAntonio

Instructional designer Hayward explains ways in which seemingly simple drawing techniques can allow us to communicate more clearly by building a richer visual vocabulary of child-like images. Kate Hayward is an instructional designer with 30+ years experience commu-nicating with the written and spoken word. In 2007, she attended the first International VizThink Conference and recognized the power of an abandoned skill set in simple drawings. Since 2007, she has brought her discovery to audiences around the world, teaching people to draw again, with great delight. Sometimes, she even has old crayons in her pockets.
