Drawing’s main purpose is to communicate an idea, an emotion, a concept. Look at subject/ resources and theme.Drawing is a visual language
There are many and varied drawing techniques that an artist uses to communicate an idea. Following are examples
Cross hatching and an ink wash are used in this example. A combination of contour and line
A lithograph or etching is done on a metal plate then printed. These drawing represent a series of images
There is a tendency for the beginner artist to tense up when first drawing. This is perfectly natural and derives from nervousness as to the outcome of the drawing. Especially when drawing amongst a group of other people the tendency is to place huge significance on the quality of the work as though all eyes are on you. Accordingly the build up of pressure leads to a build-up of tension in the body and arms resulting in poor posture and restricted movements.On a more creative level bold statements are avoided for the fear of the wrong kind of statement being made – leading to people rejecting or laughing at your artwork. This kind of fear is well documented even amongst famous artists, yet with the correct approach this fear can be turned to your advantage.The main thing in either case is to be more fluid in your movement than rigid. The tendency when stressed is to tense muscles ready for action (the ‘fight or flight’ syndrome). Yet if these muscles remain tense free movement becomes stilted. In a similar sense the movement of ideas can become paralysed by tension. A few simple breathing exercises and the correct mental attitude can help to improve your creative flow.

PART 2 ‘Drawing is . . . not an exercise of particular dexterity, but above all a means of expressing intimate feelings and moods.’ Henri Matisse
Drawing TechniquesDrawing techniques refer to the way drawing materials can beapplied to communicate an idea. Watch this YouTubevideo onGraphite TechniquesTechniques include continuous line drawing, cross hatching andhatching, blending, rendering, pen and ink, ink wash, scrafitto,trois crayons, weight drawing, gestural plus many more
Van Gogh, Street in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, 1888 (Reed pen, quill,and ink over graphite on wove paper; 24.3 x 31.7 cm).
"The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.” LeonardoLeonardo De VinciGrotesque Profile, c. 1487-90Ink on paper
"If I trust my drawing hand it is because in training it to serve me, I forced myself never to let it take precedence over my feelings.” MatisseFACE (CLAUDE)charcoal on paper40.5 x 30 cm.Private Collection1946
"Picasso ended up where normally he should have started." Its true; but in order to achieve his pure and linear rendering of the bull, he had to pass through all of theintermediary stages. And when you stand beforehis eleventh bull, its hard to imagine the work that went into it"...Pablo Picasso, Les 11 états successifsde la lithography Le Taurean , 1945.
Drawing is a visual language… How have these artists and others used the various drawing techniques to represent ideas. Review and discuss.CONSIDER SOME OF THE ELEMENTS OF Art ANDDESIGN: (line, colour, value, shape, form, space, texture)The art material/ thickness of a line/ the weight of a line/how quickly the mark is made/ the position of the markson a page/ how the marks were made and what theyrepresent.
Drawing materialsLets look and experiment with the physicalproperties and capabilities of tools and materialscommonly used for drawing
Graphite Pencils Lets look and experiment with the physical properties and capabilities of tools and materials commonly used for drawing
Take a Line for a walk…Experiment with a variety of graphite pencils to seehow you can vary the thickness of a line by the wayyou hold your pencil. Draw a number of continuouslines down your page.What do you notice?
PART 3 ‘It is only by drawing often, drawing everything, drawing incessantly, that one fine day you discover to your surprise that you have rendered something in its true character.’ Camille Pissarro
Free yourself up!• Breathing and posture• Good mental attitude• Have fun!
The exercise called ‘blind drawing’ because it shows that when we do nottake both the paper and the subject into account (when we are notcomparing our own results with the world as it appears to us) we end upwith a poor result, as if we are drawing blindly’. Watch this video so youhave an idea.
What you’ll needA3 Paper4B pencilMasking TapeA stimulus image to drawIn this session, we will play the traditional game ofdrawing blind. Focusing on the image only, you willtry to get proportion and distance correct in a contourdrawing, without looking at the paper.Draw the image in front of you and remember not tolook!Training your eyes and training your brain to seewhat is in front of you
PART 4 OBJECTIVES- Did we meet all the objectives? 1.1 Clarify purpose of drawings with appropriate people. 1.2 Identify suitable techniques to represent ideas 1.3 Select tools and materials required for selected techniques 2.4 Draw ideas using selected techniques Final questions? FUTURE- Next training session will cover elements 1.4, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.5
PART 5 Assessment Tasks Time for you to test what you’ve learnt
You will be required to complete two assessmenttasks to demonstrate your understanding of theconcepts covered today. You will have 10 minutes.1. ASSESSMENT TASK:Blind, continuous line contour drawing using yourown chosen stimulus.2. ASSESSMENT TASK:Written task- answer a series of 6 questions related tothe content you have learnt today.FEEDBACK form
