Artists and ideas: the importance of drawing
Drawing, in its widest sense, is used to develop an exciting and personal visual vocabulary. The importance of practicing drawing to develop mark-making skills, encourage selectivity, closer observation and create compositions are some of the points made by artists from a variety of disciplines.
Encourage students to respond to the same subject through a variety of media; pencil, charcoal, clay, paint digital photography, drawing software.
Include time related exercises varying the times from a 30 second response to 30 minute closer observation.
