Drawing: Getting Started

Join Be In Art’s online drawing course for beginners to help you realise that you CAN draw!

Contrary to how it can feel sometimes when you have seen people drawing or admired art work on a gallery wall, drawing is not a magical ability and it isn’t something that some people are born with and others not.

We can all learn to draw – it is just about starting at the very beginning rather than jumping in at the deep end!

The best way into drawing is to start with the basics and to have some fun with drawing, rather than trying to draw complex things, which can often end up making you feel frustrated and more than likely giving up!  In this online drawing course you will be putting pen to paper, making marks and getting familiar with how this feels before you build up to drawing objects.

There can feel like quite a lot of pressure with drawing to produce something accurately or ‘right’, and what tends to stop us drawing is the critical voice in our head which says ‘your drawing isn’t very good’.  But this voice isn’t true and you can learn to ignore it in order to discover that you CAN actually draw.  Wouldn’t it be great to put aside those feelings of frustration and actually enjoy the experience of developing your drawing?

For this course you don’t need to know anything about different drawing materials and terms, and I won’t be throwing you in the deep end and asking you to draw something real straight away – I promise!

I’d encourage you to come along with no expectations, to be curious and to explore what might happen if you give drawing a try.

By the end of this online drawing course you will be surprised with what you are able to achieve with your drawing, will have evidence that you can actually draw, and will be itching to do more!

“This is such a great value reintroduction to drawing course. Really achievable creative daily exercises that boost your belief that you can draw”. Polly

Practical details

How long is the drawing course and how does it work?

The course has 28 exercises, and you have access to the course for 6 months. Within this you can do the drawings completely at your own pace, and all the drawing exercises are listed online.

Each drawing exercise can be completed in as little as 5-10 minutes, although you can choose to spend more time on these if you would like to.

What support is available?

This course has a Facebook group for all students, where you can share your drawings if you would like feedback and support from me. (Not on Facebook – no problem – you can also share your drawings by email if you would like feedback and support).

What materials will I need?

There is no need to buy any materials – all of these exercises require a pen, a pencil and paper (any will do – even a biro and notebook!), but you might like to buy some drawing pencils or a sketchbook and you can see my recommendations here.
