Jeff Bermundo - Lucille Ball DrawingLast week I taught another 2-day Idea Mapping Workshop in Long Beach, CA for Boeing.

One of the favorite activities outside of the idea mapping is around teaching participants to draw a portrait of a human face using some of the techniques taught by Betty Edwards (author of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain).

The purpose of this activity is to apply a learning model taught in the workshop to a variety of new skills that most adults find difficult or impossible. It becomes an analogy for life-long learning of any skill.

This portrait of Lucille Ball was drawn by Jeff Bermundo. On the left side is the original portrait, and on the right is Jeff’s drawing. (No tracing allowed.) Great job Jeff!
