This website provides a way of making a list of categories. The one I have created can be found at the top of the left-hand side margin, written in brown typeface. The categories (in upper case) and sub categories (in lower case) are arranged in alphabetical order. They categories are: ‘Creativity’, ‘Drawing’, ‘Extracts from my books’, ‘Miscellaneous subjects’, ‘Painting’, ‘Painting School news’, ‘Science’ and ‘The Glossary’. Click on any of these to access all posts in that category.
Experience shows that many readers find it difficult to find specific Posts by this method. To make it easier, I have created an up to date ‘Contents List’, divided into five categories. Most of the material in the categories “drawing”, “painting” and “creativity” comes from my books on those subjects.
Contents list, listing the five categories and the Posts to be found within each of them:
