observing and visual recording

I have begun reading a book titled “Imagine” by Jonah Lehrer and after forty pages I look forward to reading the rest of this book. Here are several excerpts from this book: “It is about our most important mental talent: the ability to imagine what has never existed.”  ” The concept is only the start of the process,” West says. The hardest work always comes after,when you’re trying to make the idea real.” by Harry West who came up with the Swiffer concept after watching a woman wipe the floor with a paper towel.

Leonardo ,I think,was one of the best observers and visual recorders. ThIs post is for my students at Meramec Community College and they should be working on their observing and visual recording journal.
