Have been teaching High School art in North Dakota for 10 years and online art classes for 5 years. Also serve on the Executive Board for the North Dakota Council on the Arts. Prior to receiving my Art Education Degree, I was an artist in residence in the Lake Region Area in North Eastern North Dakota. Art is not only what I do for a living, it is how I live my life. Everything you see around you passes through an artist's hand. There is nothing more gratifying than to be able to look at something and recreate it with your own perspective. I hope those that take this art class will experience that same enjoyment.

To learn to draw, you must judge the relationship between space and lines. Practicing drawing is much like practicing for a sport. The amount of time you put into it improves your abilities.
PRINT this numbered grid and the Mystery Grid Blank below. Copy the shape in each number from this grid into the corresponding numbered square on the Mystery Grid Blank, as accurately as you can. This will create a finished picture while giving you an understanding of how shapes and lines equal a picture. This is the same as writing your name. When you first learned to write you had to pay attention to how the lines formed shapes that looked like the letters of your name. To learn to draw you must be able to judge the relationship of lines and the shapes that suround them.
COPY THE REALISTIC IMAGE INTO THE BOX UNDER IT. PAY ATTENTION TO THE SPACE BEHIND THE LINES AND SHAPES TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE SHAPES ARE ACCURATE ALSO.
COPY THE NON OBJECTIVE IMAGE INTO THE BOX UNDER IT AS ACCURATELY AS YOU CAN. THIS WILL TRAIN YOUR EYE AND HAND TO MOVE TOGETHER. PAY ATTENTION TO THE WHITE SHAPES BEHIND THE LINES TO HELP YOU IN YOUR ACCURACY. TRY NOT TO USE A RULER.
A LINE IS A MARK WITH A POINTED TOOL. YOU HAVE ALREADY EXPERIMENTED WITH CONTINUOUS LINES WHILE MAKING YOUR CONTOUR DRAWINGS. LINES CAN ALSO BE THICK, THIN, WAVY, ETC. COMPLETE THE LINE SAMPLER TO EXPERIMENT WITH DIFFERENT LINES.
