The wonderful thing about drawing is the freedom an artist has to imagine and create extraordinary pieces of art in their studio.
Medium: This refers to what materials artists are using in their drawings. The first step is thinking about what look and feel you want to achieve in your lessons, and how confident you are to learn with each. Tutors will often start their students on pencil. There are various types you can draw with, for example, charcoal, graphite, or coloured pencils. The advantage point here in your classes is a quick and easy cleanup.
Technique: This next step refers to how an artist will do their drawing. The simple ‘scribble’ is a well-known drawing technique for kids where the hand is free to just randomly move around the paper and create basic abstract forms and lines. In your art tutorials, your teacher may often like to 'blend' or ‘cross-hatch’ (where lines are used to create light, darkness, or texture on paper). There are plenty of techniques for students to read up on online!
Subject matter: Refers to what the drawing is about. A great point to start in your drawing courses is using the humble apple. Fruit is a popular choice of ‘still life’ for beginner students and their teachers to make use of. Look for small household objects or something basic in your workshop to practice with, a flower, vase, book, etc. You may be inspired to draw a landscape (mountain location, Sydney beach) or perhaps take your class to an iconic Melbourne laneway to paint.
Style: The genre or movement of art, the overall look of the drawing. Sidney Nolan, originally from Melbourne, is a key figure in modern art painting around Australia and the world. Modern drawings can be inspired by minimalist design or filled with geometric lines. Surely you read about Da Vinci in school, one of the most well-known Renaissance artists of all time whose drawings show an incredible range of technique and perspective.
Like many art forms, drawing lessons are an opportunity to express your thoughts and ideas creatively. Starting with just a basic pencil, you have a chance to put down on paper what you see in your mind and visualise the world from a completely new perspective.
Have you ever looked at an artwork and felt a certain way? Through drawing, people can also express how they feel. Channelling your emotions into your work can help others reflect on their own thoughts. With a Superprof art course, you are not only learning from the best tutors but are stimulating your mind through creating artwork and exploring the use of different colours, textures, and design! Many tutors will agree that drawing or painting is both a satisfying activity for students and rewarding experience along the line, especially when you finish a new art piece and feel a sense of accomplishment.
You may be drawing to learn something new from your teacher or just for the sake of enjoyment, either way is sure to improve your mood. Some may find drawing courses a form of creative stress relief when life becomes demanding. Putting pencil to paper in your class can be a small source of distraction for a couple of hours, a way of taking your mind off things. For children, drawing lessons can boost memory skills and concentration in school. Whereas adults who like to create more complex drawings will also bring their maths and decision-making skills into the course as they make artwork.
Taking a lesson with a Superprof teacher is the first step to improving your skills. Kids don’t need to be ‘naturally talented’ at painting or have the best techniques for their artwork, only a willingness to learn! Forget the pressure to label yourself a professional artist, beginners can find a range of basic courses online through Superprof tutors that will help them gain great art skills. Painting classes are a great start if you are keen to practice the fundamentals of arts with your tutors (perspective, light, vanishing point, use of line, etc). During your lessons, your tutor will show you step-by-step on how to bring your best work to life. But you don’t have to paint by the book! Feel free to experiment in the studio with colour, charcoal, oil, or whatever you can find. Beginners students may even want to spend a few hours at some local life drawings events! Your teacher is there to help your learning and give you feedback throughout the course on your work and techniques. Use the tutorial to practice with your pencils or charcoal, and figure out your own creative art style.
