As the weather has gotten nicer we are finding it harder and harder to squeeze in our drawing lessons. Most of our free time, not taken up by the end of the year activities, such as field trips, recitals, first communions, etc, has been spent out in the garden. We are also winding down our school year, finishing up the last assignments. For those of you who have been following along with our lessons, I just wanted to let you know that we will probably only be doing another 1 or 2 this season. We will pick up where we leave off in the fall.
Drawing Lessons: Getting Started
We are continuing our weekly drawing class. We are using Mark Kistler’s book, You Can Draw in 30 Days. Instead of completing the book in 30 days, we plan to take 30 weeks, doing a new lesson each week and then spending time during the week practicing what we have learned.
If you would like to join us, simply pick up the book You Can Draw in 30 Days, and start at Drawing Lesson 1 :: The Sphere, and follow along at your own pace. Each Lesson will be linked to the first Lesson, the previous lesson and the next lesson. Happy Drawing!
Lesson 1 :: The Sphere
Lesson 6 :: Stacking Tables
Lesson 8 :: Coming soon.
Drawing Lesson 7 : Advanced Cubes
This week we continued our study of stacked cubes, this time adding arches and ramps.
Here is the classwork from today’s lesson.
Pixie’s Advanced Cubes
Fairy’s Advanced Cubes
Bug’s Advanced Cubes
Michelle’s Advanced Cubes
Before each drawing session, warm up by practicing slants and lines.
Practice drawing stacked cubes with additional features like ramps and arches.
Design your own castle, church, or fortress using elements from the lesson.
Have a wonderful week drawing and we will see you next week for Lesson 8!
