“Every child is an artist, the problem is how to remain an artist when they grow up” – Pablo Picasso
Lets play a small game!!! Close your eyesafter seeing the image and try drawing it freely on a sheet of paper with a pencil provided.
The thing that you did on the piece of paper is called a “SKETCH” What is a sketch...
A sketch is a rapidly executed freehand drawing that is not usuallyintended as a finished work.
What is the difference betweendrawing and sketching...• Sketching is when you are quickly laying out your artwork with a basic outlines of what you want and where you want it.• Drawing is when you go into more detail such as adding those second marks on a watch. Practice a lot and you will become better at it.

Henry Dreyfuss• One of the celebrity industrial designers of the 1930s and 1940s, Dreyfuss dramatically improved the look, feel, and usability of dozens of consumer products.• Dreyfuss was not a stylist: he applied common sense and a scientific approach to design problems.• His work both popularized the field for public consumption, and made significant contributions to the underlying fields of ergonomics, anthropometrics, and human factors.

The Basics of Sketching•Use a soft pencil, e.g. HB•Grasp the pencil between your fingers, about 20 mm from its tip.•Do not rest your hand on the paper while you draw (do free-handdrawing)•Hold the pencil at an angle so that you are able to see its point.•Be relaxed about what you are doing.
Step A:Draw a number of parallel lines, vertically, horizontally and diagonally.Try to focus on the point towards which you are drawing the lines, andkeep your wrist from bending.
Step B:Once you feel at ease with drawing parallel lines, you may startdrawing horizontal and vertical lines to form right angles (90 degreeangles).
Step C:When you are able to draw these right angles confidently, you areready for the next step: drawing squares. Squares and rectangles arecommonly used to frame other objects that are sketched.
Step D:If you have to draw a circle, it may be useful to sketch a square –lightly. The sides should be equal to the diameter of the circle that isrequired. By marking the centers of the four sides you will identify thepoints of contact of the circle..
Step E:If you have to draw a circle, it may be useful to sketch a square –lightly. The sides should be equal to the diameter of the circle that isrequired. By marking the centers of the four sides you will identify thepoints of contact of the circle..
