Homework – students on our skills course showing commitment

It is always gratifying watching others make positive steps towards their objectives. The steps we take on the Skills course are simple ones and all the more powerful for it. In the picture above you can see some homework completed after the first week of term. Just boxes filled with lines in different directions.

Does it help us to draw expressively? Of course: the strengthened links between the eye and the hand bring greater precision it’s true but energy also begins to flow and with it our creativity. 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration is the old adage and the inspiration is sweet when it comes.

As we progress much of the perspiration takes place in observational drawing but these basic steps are just the thing to prepare the ground.
