Our minds create symbols in the world that we see so that we can make inferences and judgments. Learning to draw is the beginning of a new relationship with the world and it's like seeing the world for the first time.
Blind contour drawings are useful as a practice to learn how to draw. It helps create trust between your eyes, your mind, and your muscles. It reduces tendencies in most beginner drawers to draw what is known rather than drawing what you see. Blind contour drawings are practice in drawing what you see.
Draw what you see, not the symbol of something that you see.
