Is Your Drawing out of Order?

Most of us jump into the details too soon! Building a foundation for the drawing is counter intuitive and the most common problem I see with up and coming artists...


  1. I have shown this video to my art class, all of my middle school art classes. Just today I had three students try to tell me that their brains only work with the details and not with shapes. We have spent the past month practicing basic shapes and working with different drawings that are lending themselves to using shapes. If there are any great ideas to help encourage drawing with basic shapes first, please share!

    1. I project images of animals and tell them that we're running a contest to see who can represent the animal the best using the fewest shapes and they can only use circle, triangle, or me for details if want.
