I was teaching a workshop one time using Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right
Side of the Brain. When we were ready to do contour drawing, one class
member whispered to me that she couldn't do it because she was legally blind.

On the spur of the moment, I sat beside her and had her trace my ear with
one finger while she drew with the other. Marvelous drawing! I've used
this with students since to introduce contour drawing--if they can do it
without seeing what they are drawing, they can surely do it when they are
looking at it!
