    THINKING THROUGH DRAWING: PRACTICE INTO KNOWLEDGE v vi TEACHERs COLLEGE COLUmbIA UNIvERsITy Foreword


    The symposium Thinking through Drawing:


    Practice into Knowledge brought together artists,


    neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists, medical


    practitioners, designers, and educators from the


    US and the UK, all with a shared interest in draw-


    ing and cognition. This trans-disciplinary gathering


    was held at Teachers College, Columbia University


    in New York City in October 2011 and addressed a


    broad range of concerns regarding contemporary


    drawing practice, theoretical analysis and educa-


    tion, in light of current scientific research.
