Summer Drawing Course

Anyone interested in a summer drawing course?  It has been a while since I broke out the pencil and paper so I thought it would be fun to teach drawing to the Price clan which would be a great excuse for me to do some drawing too!   Drawing (much like photography) is a skill developed by learning to “see”.  The lessons I’ll be teaching (and learning myself) will be mostly about training your brain to “see” in order to reproduce realistic drawings.

If you use Instagram post your drawings and tag them with #plpDrawingClass.  It will be fun to see everyone’s work!

I will be following through “The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” by Betty Edwards and hope to have a lesson once a week.

Before we jump into the lessons there are 4 drawings we need to do in order to establish a benchmark to gauge our progress.  The goal is to learn to draw better and hopefully by the end of the summer we will be able to look back on these first drawings and see progress.  The 4 drawings are as follows:

1.  Draw a picture of someone (head only) by looking at them or yourself in a mirror.  Don’t use a photograph.

2.  Draw a picture of a person without looking at anyone or a photograph.

3.  Draw a picture of your own hand.

4.  Draw a picture of a chair by looking at a real chair, not a photograph.


Here are my initial attempts..
