Title: Your First Drawing Lesson Your drawing history


1
Your First Drawing LessonYour drawing history
2
Learning Objective
  • To understand and appreciate the bigger picture
    behind why so many people struggle to learn to
    draw.

3
Introduction
  • Before you begin to study drawing you should
    understand the process people go through as they
    develop.
  • Nearly everyone goes through the same stages so
    it's important not to worry about it and let
    yourself develop naturally. You shouldn't get too
    hung up about comparing your work to other
    people's or making things look real.
  • This lesson aims to teach you how most of us
    developed our drawing ability and why so many
    people get stuck.

How do famous artists describe drawing?
  • Drawing is taking a line for a walk. Paul Klee
  • Drawing is not an exercise of skill but a means
    of expressing intimate feelings and moods. Henri
    Matisse.
  • Drawing is the discipline by which I constantly
    discover the world. I have learned that what I
    have not drawn, I have never really seen.
    Frederick Franck
  • I draw without taking my pen off the page. I just
    keep going, and I think of my drawings as
    scribbles. I don't think they mean anything to
    anybody except to me. Then at the end of the
    project, they wheel out these little drawings and
    they're damn close to what the finished building
    is and it's the drawing. Frank Gehry

5
Many people believe that you have to have been
born with a special talent to draw
  • A few people can draw without any help or
    lessons. They have natural ability.
  • Most other students compare themselves against
    these people, which is not fair!
  • Judge yourself against YOUR earlier work to see
    if you are progressing.
  • Enjoy other peoples work, you are not in
    competition with them.

Besides, everyone can draw!
  • Whilst it is true that many people can draw very
    skilfully without being taught it is also true
    that EVERYONE can draw to some degree.
  • We draw almost as soon as we can hold a pencil in
    our hands and even before we can write a single
    letter. Writing is a kind of drawing too, so if
    you can write you can draw!
  • Drawing is a skill we develop instinctively from
    a young age, so what happens to us to make us
    lose our confidence and think that we can't draw?

7
Introduction Your First Drawings
  • From an early age you will have learned how to
    draw with a circular motion.
  • NEARLY EVERYONE LOVES DRAWING AT THIS AGE

Your Later Drawings
  • At about 6 years old, we learn to draw pictures.
  • MOST PEOPLE DRAW HOUSES AND HAPPY SMILEY
    PEOPLE.

The Realism Stage Where it all goes wrong!
Lowenfelds Dawning Realism
  • At about ten years old we become obsessed with
    making things look REAL. If we cant make things
    look perfect we become upset.
  • Many people give up drawing here and rarely draw
    again.

10
For many people this is drawing
  • As you try to make thing look real and right on
    the paper, your brain is full of doubt
  • Mine looks wrong
  • Ive made a mistake.
  • Mine isnt very good
  • Theirs is better than mine.

You can feel embarrassed, awkward, uncomfortable
even ashamed to let anyone see your work
11
We are seldom taught HOW to draw
  • If we wanted to learn how to play a musical
    instrument we would get lessons or tutorials yet
    we seldom get drawing lessons!

12
So how do you become good at drawing?
That's easy..............
13
LOVE drawing
  • faces people cars dogs cats horses landscapes
    scenes flowers animals aeroplanes tanks battles
    swords aliens warriors soldiers houses fairies
    cartoons anime comic books monsters space
    butterflies graffiti fish
  • DRAW THE THINGS YOU LOVE DRAW THEM OFTEN

14
  • Task Spend some time drawing the things you love
  • In your sketchbooks draw ANYTHING you like for
    the next 30 minutes.
  • Perhaps you would like to look in a book to find
    a picture to copy.
  • Maybe you want to invent something from your
    imagination.
  • Perhaps you can see an object you would like to
    draw in the room.
  • Do you have access to a computer where you can
    find a picture you like and print it out to copy
    from?

15
Plenary Don't worry about making it real!
  • You will only learn to draw if you can over come
    your fears.
  • All artists make mistakes and get things wrong.
    So don't get down about it.
  • Everyone draws differently and even many famous
    artists don't draw realistically and sometimes
    they can't draw at all!!!

'Shark' artwork is worth 5,000!!!
