My father died of a brain tumor. As difficult as that was to accept, it was
interesting to see that all the concepts born out in 'Drawing with the Right
Side of the Brain' were really true.
However, with students like yours I would NEVER use that book. Mine were just
academic comments.
For your students I would do art therapy, personal expression, in pastels.
Surely there are emotions to be shared! Emphasize authenticity and what I
call 'allowing the colors to pick themselves'.
