This course will be comprised of individual units. Each session is for 2 hours one day per week, with homework. There are no prerequisites for this course (You do not have to be trained in CRV to join these units.)
Why is Sketching and Visual Expression Important?
Most of us will at some stage have an idea in our head, and since there is no photo camera (yet) that can take an accurate screenshot of what we are perceiving, we rely on our ability to create visual representations of what we have in mind! Whether the input comes from creative vision, a dream, extrasensory perception, telepathy or our ordinary five senses is not even that important, it is more important that we have the ability to express our internal perceptions and communicate this information to those who need answers, solutions, clues or indications.
No matter what your background, we all want to provide useful information! In many cases, people have clear perceptions, but they are unable to make an accurate sketch or reasonable rendering of what they perceived and they end up drawing a basic shape, a stick figure or some random scribbles. These can be a good start and together with the description, it can help, but a better and more accurate sketch certainly increases the chances of recognition!
Of course this does not only apply to faces we perceived, but also to structures, buildings, concepts and ideas! The more accurate we are able to express our perception the easier it is to communicate those perceptions to others, who may recognise what it is we are describing.
From ambiguous to accurate
Some skeptics have stated, after seeing some Remote Viewing sketches: “This information is so generic, it could apply to almost anything! You are just making the data fit!” And to be fair, in some cases, when I look at sketches and information I have to agree! The information and sketches are simply too generic to be useful!
However…this criticism no longer applies when you have a sketch that is a quite accurate representations of the target. The better the representation, the less people can argue the information is vague and therefor useless!
Practicing sketching requires focus and observation skills, like observing shapes, volumes, outlines, negative spaces, lights and shadows, relationships to objects, perspective etc. This will almost force you to become a better observer, whether the observation is made from an internal source or an external source you will automatically pay more attention to these kind of details.
During this Course
The purpose of this course is to help you enhance your visual expression skills and in the process your observation skills. We aim for an accurate representation of a perception. We will also touch on capturing the essence of a perception, in case of an overload of information, and adding the details later in the process.
