Unlearning to Draw looks to the art of children and outsider artists for inspiration, advocating a return to carefree, untrained drawing and a renewed focus on the joys of making rather than on the end result. Author Peter Jenny encourages readers to use family photographs as the starting point to develop their own types of outsider art.
Peter Jenny is professor emeritus and chair of visual design at the ETH Zurich, Switzerland. He has published numerous books on design and visual thinking.
