Drawing is the foundation of visual art. Acquiring the fundamentals of drawing enables you to grow as an artist consistently improving and strengthening your drawings and paintings rather than lurching from crisis to crisis. Many artists, particularly those who lack the foundational skills of drawing, find themselves making the same errors over and over again unable to realise their ideas in concrete form. An example is that this is a common complaint amongst many graduates of MFA programs. This complaint has an historical basis: the recent history of fine art education is the rejection of fine art craft in favor of critical theory.
The workshop is accessible to everyone who wants to learn how to draw. It is a self-contained education designed for both home and class study. The content of Beginning to Draw is equal, and more!, to a 12-week college-level foundational art course.
