“Never tell a young person that anything cannot be done. God may have been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing.” — John Andrew Holmes

Larger Drawing Goals:

  • Observation (80% – 92% time looking), Guidelines, Concentration, Slow Drawing
  • Focus on the figure, Proportions, Scale, Sighting In
  • Full Page, Composition
  • 2.1Ad: Experiment, plan, and make multiple works of art and design that explore a personally meaningful theme, idea, or concept.
  • RESOLUTION of the figure drawing is MONDAY. What are three strengths that are happening in your drawing? How are you going to build on those strengths and develop the final drawing?

Step back – how did it turn out? Give a thought here – think about your work and step back with pride in the process.

Drawing: Get Work Out, Sit Down, and Log in
