Discovering the Joy of Drawing through the Contour
August 12, 2013 § Leave a comment
Too often aspiring artists are met with cold elitist teaching methods that leave them feeling as if art is relegated only to a talented few. If taught properly, drawing can be learned just as one would a musical instrument. Not everyone will be a virtuoso, but if given the proper time, dedication, and appreciation of the power of the contour line as an emotive tool, each of us can learn to draw proficiently, invoke a personal style, and master the medium. My insight developed while teaching drawing for over twenty years will help provide a basis for sharing thoughts and discovering various methods. This forum is meant to be a free exchange of ideas, the various snags we run into, and support for one another while we draw. I look forward to hearing from you!
