We use neuroplasticity to improve brain power and generate new ways to do things. One of the ways to induce neuroplasticity is by doing certain motoric actions, like bilateral drawing.
Drawing with both left and right hand has been a part of Anna’s toolset since I know Anna. And Anna used to ask me to draw with both hands more than once, as a way to strengthen relations between visual processing (left hand) and logical processing (right hand). At the beginning it was very hard and the images I created were very simple, but with time I manage ambidextrous drawing where each hand complemented the work of the other hand.
Many years have passed. I did not draw with both hands till then, and Anna removed the task from the main course to streamline the material. Recently, when reviewing the elements we removed from the main course we decided to recommend bilateral drawing to students more interested in creativity training and medical rehabilitation via the course. While we could not find direct link between reading quality and bilateral drawing, the skill was psychologically beneficial to every student that used it, and it also removed many creativity barriers.
