Starting to Draw? PART 1: 4 Things you Need

This Starting Drawing tutorial is the first in a series of art tutorials for absolute beginners to drawing. It covers 4 things that you need to know to start drawing with confidence. Firstly, the video talks about getting into a positive frame of mind. It also covers which type of paper to use for drawing. How to make use of your hand when holding a pencil and drawing. Sharpening pencils and using pencils creatively is also explained.

This easy drawing tutorial explains how to vary the line you draw by twisting your hand and applying different pressure. This makes the lines you draw look more creative and imaginative. Which is what you want to achieve if you are going to draw well. Hatching and cross hatching are also explained.

In the next video in the series, I shall bring all these elements together to create our first drawing. Understanding the 4 elements explained in the video will allow beginners to draw with confidence. The art tutorial will be useful for children in schools and anyone starting to draw. If you teaching kids to draw I’m sure they will find it useful too
