    I actually don't think art is the best way to learn how to become more S but it's probably the most comfortable and appealing for an N. There's too much room for imagination in art and therefore the risk of drifting off into N-land for someone who already has a tendency to do that. There are plenty of other activities that involve the senses that don't require as much imagination.

    Getting lost in the woods is pretty sweet like that.

    Hmm, in my family, xSxx suck at art, while xNxx live for it practically.
    I can't see the relevance.

    I guess our family's the opposite of yours -- except for my husband who likes to do woodworking, the Ns suck at art and don't ever do anything artistic, and the Ss like different forms of it and enjoy playing around with color and shape, etc.. I see an awful lot of relevance in my suggestion. Perhaps each family is different.

    I wasn't talking about abstract art, by the way. Have you actually tried DOING blind contour drawing? It demands you tune out intuition and pay attention closely to what you're sensing.

    What about landscape drawings? I've had a desire to do one of those for a while...

    I have a good friend whom I believe is an ISFJ who does beautiful watercolors of landscapes. Instead of taking his camera when he goes on vacations, he takes his paints and records the beauty around him that way. I love his work.

    I should say that I've never done something like it before. But it sounds fun to try.

    Anyway...

    hmm.. if contour drawing involves observing a subject and trying to draw exactly what you see, I'm not sure if there's much room for N, there.

    I can't do landscapes. I rush them and they end up looking like Pollock drew them.
