Introduction To Drawing

The Grid Method


Often when drawing gets too tough, we give up and restart, or we never pick up a pencil again! This class is aimed at people who want to start drawing and get results quickly. We will be taking you through a method that is very familiar to artists and we will explain why and how it is effective. We will be showing you the grid method and how we can break down the image into small shapes that come together in an amazing drawing.

We have broken down the stages so that you can draw along with us and understand where to start and what to do next. Using the grid as our guide, we will show you how you can use this method with any drawing you want to do in the future. This doesn't just apply to the image we have chosen!

By the end of this class you should feel confident that you can draw anything using our trusted grid and taking it step-by-step.
