drawing is like spelling or singing.
Graham is going to teach the audience how to ________________.

Graham thinks he can teach the audience how to draw. What two things do we need?
a pen and paper
to watch, then copy
an open mind, and a willingness to try
"Okay, here we go. Start with the nose. Now the eyes. They're like 66s or speech marks. That's it. Next, the mouth. Nice, big smile. Now, over here, the ear. Next, some ___________ hair. Next, put the pen to the left to the mouth, little line like that. Pen under the ear, drop a line like that. Pen to the left of the neck, top of the T-shirt. Line to the left, line to the right."
"So, it looks like ________________ just learned to draw one cartoon, but ______________ actually learned more than that; _______________ learned a sequence that would enable you to draw hundreds and thousands of different cartoons, because we're just going to do little variations on that sequence."
"Have a go at this," means, "_______________."
Do this, then go away
What is the name of the curly haired character?
"We'll do one more. One more go. Here we go. You're getting the idea. (Laughter) So we'll start with a nose again. Notice we're doing ___________________________."
very little actions
very little alterations
To illustrate, "fed up," what kind of line does David draw?
a wavy line
a straight line
a squiggly line
Hopefully, we've done enough to ___________________ you that in fact we can all draw.
Why were the children learning how to draw?
Because when they turn 15 or 16 they think they can't draw anymore.
Drawing pictures of things help them remember them better.
What could the boat be a metaphor for?
To represent the idea that, "We're all in this together."
To represent the idea that drawing pictures can be a useful way to make presentations memorable.
"I said, 'I do a little bit of training, and I teach people to draw,' and she said, 'Would you come along and do some for our group?' She said, 'I work with some people' - she was ___________________ - a group of people who have suffered strokes."
able to hear
Graham says that he was _____________________ about working with this group of people.
People who have aphasia, or dysphasia, have trouble __________________.
Anyway, so I prepared all this stuff, what to do for this session - for a couple of hours, tea break in the middle - and I got more ____________________.
David says he was surprised to learn that most of the people in the session _________________________.
were drawing with their wrong hand
"Our recoverers learned today that they can draw. It's a bit more than that; this sort of activity really builds their _______________."
Who is this last cartoon supposed to be a picture of?
one of the people from the session
"When you walked in here today, many of you didn't believe you could draw. I've got a question for you about that. How many other beliefs and limiting thoughts do we all carry around with us every day? Beliefs that we could perhaps potentially challenge and think differently about. If we did _______________________________ and think differently about them, apart from drawing, what else would be possible for us all?"
change those beliefs
challenge those beliefs
When the audience came today, many believed that they couldn't draw, but Graham has convinced them that they actually can draw. What point is he trying to make with his lecture?
When we have a problem, or think that we have a problem, drawing cartoons will help us think "outside the box."
Even if you "think" you can't do something, you shouldn't let that keep you from trying. In fact, you should really try because "who knows what would be possible."
