Art Class DVD 1, The Basics of Drawing, will help your children hit the ground running as they learn the basics for creating a good drawing.
Lesson 1 – Tools of the Trade
Learn the basics of what makes a drawing. Master artist Pat Knepley demonstrates what you need to have on hand in your drawing “toolkit” to always be ready to draw.
Lesson 2 – It all starts with a line
The most fundamental element of all drawing is the line – but not all lines are alike! Learn about different line qualities and the most essential skill of drawing – contour drawing.
Lesson 3 – Contours and composition
Train your eyes and hands to be synchronized! You’ll learn some tips to place items in a drawing – or “composition” – to get the best results!
Lesson 4 – Draw what you see
You’ll take common everyday item – a shoe – as your subject for a completed contour drawing. This is a true test of whether you draw what you SEE or what you KNOW.
