Value Drawings

In this lesson students chose from black and white source material and framed out a 5 x 4 inch area to copy. Copying the scale and the values exactly is great practice.

Drawing From Nature

I set up boards to draw from. The theme this week was nature. The board is the same size as the paper so the student is drawing to scale. This way measurements can be made to check your drawing along the way. It’s a great way for beginners to work.

Negative Space Drawing

Here are finished examples of negative space drawings. This is an important lesson I always teach. The instructions are simple draw the spaces between the objects not the objects. It takes a while for people to catch on but when you get it, it will change your drawing forever.
