Learn Basic Drawing


I have created my Basic Drawing videos from my experiences as an art instructor for over 50 years.

I teach beginning students confidence by acquainting them with drawing materials first then guiding them through basic drawing lessons. Students can move easily to more advanced drawing by knowing their drawing materials first and how those materials will work.  Knowing how to use the tools of drawing first gives students confidence for developing drawing skills like line drawing, shading, drawing what they see. Ultimately apply their own personal style.

Watch my introductory basic drawing lecture video then go to the Basic Drawing lessons. An exciting journey is before you.  Enjoy your adventure! The rewards of learning how to draw will last a lifetime!

My eight year old son likes to draw. You sent me the drawing lessons and I am helping him with them. We are having fun and hey, guess what, I'm learning to draw too!

Hello, I have been drawing portraits lately and feel your crosshatching method has been very helpful! My shading has improved immensely! I will work on the line drawing as soon as I have time! Rose
