self-guided art course


self-guided course for absolute beginners

This course will give you a starting point to grow as an artist. No prior art experience required, but can be fun to revive all these forgotten art skills you once had!

You will start with a series of simple exercises to improve your basic drawing skills: eye-hand coordination, proportions, shading techniques, etc. Feel free to print as many worksheets as it takes to get to the result you want. You will then learn and practice the concepts of 3-D drawing, working with positive and negative space, and Color Wheel theory.

I put together a set of non-intimidating assignments that will guide you through the basics of drawing and painting. This course will give you a solid base of art skills that you can build upon as you advance as an artist.

Topics covered:

Linear drawing and design exercised for eye-hand coordination skills.
Discover your natural hand movement.
Develop a sense of direction and proportion.
Shading techniques. Tonal values.
Drawing 3-D forms. Chiaroscuro.
Negative drawing.
Painting with acrylics (basics).
Color Theory and mixing colors.
Still-life drawing and painting.
