Yep, you got it. Everybody stands upside down and draws. It takes some
coordination on the student's part (there's always one or two who can't do
it). This re-enforces the "brain-scramble" so everyone goes from left-brain
to right-brain syndrome. It makes it essential for the teacher to illustrate
left-brain activities AND explain how to draw easier. I read it somewhere.
