Suppose you want to develop long-term memory on a particular topic. A proven method is to replicate the facts or image from recall, check your work, and repeat as you progress through new information. Referred to as the testing effect, this is the basis of Cognitive Drawing, and it is a unique approach to learning to draw anything from memory. Developed by a former Hollywood artist, Cognitive Drawing will guide your teen through the steps necessary to quickly improve his drawing ability.
The first of several planned books, Cognitive Drawing focuses mainly on the anatomy of a male bodybuilder, although the techniques are transferable. Printed on high-quality sketchbook paper, which is perfect for pencil drawing, the Cognitive Drawing book does a superb job of teaching anatomy drawing without any nudity. There are 90 days of lessons (160 pages) in Cognitive Drawing. Expect to spend about 30 minutes a lesson.
