This week we will be looking at sketchbooks and some basic ideas for drawing exercises.
An introduction to using a sketchbook can be found here
We will be handing out some basic sketchbooks and drawing materials to people over the next few weeks. If you are not sure where to start with using your sketchbook, you could look at our drawing exercises and weekly theme.
Here are some ideas for drawing exercises. They are useful for warming up and practicing your skills.
Theme of the week – Household Objects
Given that we are probably spending more time in our homes at the moment than we normally would, the theme of ‘household objects’ feels like a good place to start. Drawing objects around you is a convenient way to practice your drawing skills and a great way to start filling your sketchbooks. You could focus on quick sketches of individual objects, or maybe try something more ambitious such as a still life composition.
