Museum tells you to drop the cel phone and draw

It’s been shown in several studies that constantly taking photos of events dramatically reduces your ability to actually remember them (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/…/Want-remember-event-DONT-photo…)

So Rijksmuseum tells you to put down the cel phone. They give you a pad of paper and pencil when you enter the museum and encourage you to draw what you see – to help you experience the awe and wonder of art. They even blog/post people’s drawings.

I, for one, approve.
