These sites provide a rich array of resources growing out of the core experience of Touch Drawing:
“On my last day in art school in 1974, I had a creative awakening. In a moment of playful exploration, I moved my fingertips on a paper towel that was intended to wipe the ink below it. Lifting the towel, I saw childlike scrawls had appeared from the pressure of my fingertips touching the page! I laughed ecstatically with this discovery. In this timeless moment, I knew I had received a precious gift; a direct mode of expression that fulfilled my search for a more natural way to draw. I had a sense it would also fulfill the longing of others to open to their creative source. With this realization came a sense of responsibility. Somehow, I would share this process with the world.”
