About

Overview

Solidly grounded in a student-friendly learning process, DRAWING BASICS provides a thorough yet simple approach to drawing from observation by breaking down the process into basic elements and essential disciplinary practices. Through a series of carefully structured Basic Drawing Exercises students develop progressively more complex skills that provide a strong foundation in drawing from observation and set the stage for future development of personal expression. Student examples provide inspiration and motivation and offer attainable goals.
