Visual thinking and using one's imagination are skills that are often neglected in today's world.

The three books in the series each present a short introduction by Jenny and twenty-two easy exercises, with each book focusing on a different aspect:Notes on Drawing Technique takes actions such as gesticulating, touching, feeling, doodling, and moving as the starting points for putting pen to paper.Notes on Figure Drawing focuses on the archetypal presentation of the human figure, andLearning to See teaches the reader to discover art in everyday objects.
