This paper looks at recent examples of how drawing is advancing into the digital age: in London: the annual symposium on Thinking Through Drawing
; in Paris: an exhibition at the Grand Palais, Artistes et Robots
; a conference at the Institut d’études avancées on Space-Time Geometries and Movement in the Brain and in the Arts
; and, at the Drawing Lab, Cinéma d’Été.
These events are contrasted to a recent decline in drawing instruction in pre-professional programs of art, architecture, and design as well as in pre-K12 art education due largely to the digital revolution. In response, I argue for the ongoing importance of learning to draw both in visual art and in general education at all levels in the digital age.
