Why people believe they can’t draw - and how to prove they can | Graham Shaw | TEDxHull

Why is it that so many people think they can’t draw? Where did we learn to believe that? Graham Shaw will shatter this illusion - quite literally - in a very practical way. He’ll demonstrate how the simple act of drawing has the power to make a positive difference in the world.

Graham specialises in the art of communication and has helped thousands of people to make important presentations. He is perhaps best known for his use of fast cartoon drawings to communicate ideas and is the author of ‘The Art of Business Communication’.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

  • I remember in 2nd grade, my class had a project to make a poster. I had the job of drawing a tree. I had decided to draw a maple tree whilst a couple of my classmates drew a stereotypical tree. Long story short, the next day I came back only to find that my teacher at the time had erased my drawing and drew over it.

  • What I like about this is that the point of drawing these characters isn’t to make something perfect or realistic, but just to make something. People are so scared of drawing, but everyone in the audience is learning to laugh about it and to have fun with it, which disarms the fear of failure. So wholesome

  • The only reason I grew up a skilled artist is because I was encouraged when I was slightly better than my peers as a child. That tiny edge caught and I was showered with praise for it (and ONLY it lol), so I kept doing it. Practice makes progress.

  • I can't believe that nobody in the audience recognized Albert Einstein from his last drawing.. With 2-3 squiggles and a few simple lines, you get from Spike to an instantly recognizable science icon. I would call this a type of caricature drawing, and although Mr Shaw gave Einstein a big nose (which he didn't have) he still gave us outlines of Albert's head. But in the end, unfortunately, I still think I can't draw anything except 3 funky cartoonish heads from the neck up.
