Ambi Art: a beautiful, unique ambidextrous drawing system
Ambi Art is
a new ambidextrous drawing system developed from
1999 as an outgrowth of superpsychology. It employs a variety of two-handed techniques that help
to more easily draw and recognise shapes. Besides
natural and fun, it eliminates common
obstacles to learning to draw, and quickly builds confidence. A further bonus of Ambi
Art is that what is learnt can, in turn, improve one-handed drawing
ability. Below are listed the relevant attributes of Ambi Art, and a link to a video of its performance.
The Advantages of Ambi Art
The following points describe the advantages of Ambi Art drawing (compared to one-handed drawing):
Eliminates the common problem of slanted drawings.
Improves the ability to draw objects in proportion.
Easier to draw - and to learn to recognise - shapes.
Broadens perception skills.
Teaches the appreciation of symmetry in nature.
The Health Benefits of Ambi Art
The following points describe the health benefits of Ambi Art:
Improves eye-hand coordination.
Exercises both brain hemispheres rather than just one hemisphere (as in one-handed drawing).
Produces a sensation of slight exhilaration that indicates the
release of endorphins (brain chemicals responsible for maintaining good
Therapy or inherent ambidexterity are not required to enjoy the
benefits of Ambi Art. All you need is the ability to hold a
drawing implement in each hand and make marks. Regular practice
of Ambi Art may help to strengthen the
fibre connections between the brain hemispheres in the young, and to
stave off mental degeneration - like Dementia and Alzheimer's
Disease - in the elderly.
