Drawing is a creative art that takes serious hours, patience, and creativity to master. For beginners, this can be overwhelming and frustrating, as they probably want to draw well from the first class. Taking a course or workshop with a private drawing teacher could be an effective way for new students to start discovering the artist inside. In a private studio, students will have the time and space to improve their skills and craft step by step, and soon find that they feel more confident and have more and more fun with their art.


Basic drawing skills any artist should master

To draw well, every student needs to master some basic skills. There are 5 that most artists agree are key when learning the art of drawing:

Working with edges: This skill involves understanding the lines that separate two areas and knowing how distinct (or not) they should be in order to make something look realistic.

Recognizing Negative Space: To master this skill, a student must learn to see what's not there as well as see what is. It's important as it allows an artist to see objects in a more abstract way, and notice what the shapes in front of us actually are.

Light and Shadow: Shading is a key skill in drawing, as the way we recreate the light hitting an object is an important part of making it look realistic. Getting this skill right allows us to show more texture, and detail, enhance the power of colours, and more.

Perspective, Angle, Proportion, Scale: This is one of the most difficult skills, but also one of the most vital. Knowing how large objects should be in relation to the other object and lines around them helps us communicate aspects like distance.

Looking at work as a whole: This skill involves putting the other four all together to create a whole piece of art. Yes, we drew something that looked realistic, but what are we communicating to our audience?


What equipment you'll need for your lessons

Every craftsman needs the right tool, just like every artist. To paint you need brushes, a canvas and different types of paint, like acrylic or watercolour. While drawing materials are mostly pretty simple, it's the quality of the materials you bring to class that will make the difference. So what will you need to bring to lessons?

Good Quality Pencils: A pretty obvious essential, you'll need a range of pencils with different graphite grades, from the harder to softer ones. Having a range of pencils will be very important for shading.

A Sketchbook: While it might seem easy to choose at first, remember that you'll constantly be using this book during classes and also at home. So, you need something that's comfortable to travel with, that's durable, and has plenty of pages.

Erasers: Not all erasers are equal, so this is another decision to make. Different types make different marks on the paper or work best with certain types of paper.

A sharpener: Last but not least, if you're spending good money on pencils, you need to have a good sharpener that won't damage them. You can choose between manual and electric and different materials.

These materials might seem like a list of things we give our kids on the first day of school, or maybe not worth the high cost, but bringing the right ones to your private lessons will make the process much more fun. 


Why Adelaide is a great place for people learning to draw

Adelaide may not be the art capital of Australia, but it's a place full of passion for drawing and the arts, and it's shown in the great number of events that are happening in every location across Adelaide.
