Things to do this weekend? If you haven’t why don’t you draw with me??

I’ve done an introduction to drawing (two parts on Instagram TV) which will show you how to draw…..and how mindful it is! Have fun!! 😊 Part One.

πŸ”΄ 🟑 THE MINDFUL PROCESS OF DRAWING πŸ€” PART ONE @kimwhitbyart #kimwhitbyart *THIS IS IN TWO PARTS as IGTV will not allow a film over 10 minutes unless millions of you follow me! Suitable for ADULTS, STUDENTS and any CHILDREN who are old enough to understand what I am explaining. I will aim to unpack the nuts and bolts of the basic drawing process and reflect on the absorbing nature of the act of observational drawing. This activity is about the process of observational drawing and less about the drawn product πŸ˜‰ I will be…. Drawing from a still life in pencil. I will demonstrate circular shapes, simple perspective, ellipses and negative spaces ….all in less than 20 minutes! YOU WILL NEED πŸ€” *Paper, card, envelope…..or anything you can draw on. *Pencil, biro, felt pen…..or anything you can draw with. *And SOME STILL LIFE ITEMS. Try to find items which are unusual and which you are less familiar with. Alternatively view more familiar objects in unexpected ways eg turn a bottle on its side/balance a shoe upside down…. Many thanks to Alain De Botton for capturing a few thoughts on drawing which I like to share with drawing students. I read this at the end of the video but think you might like to see them to read, as they really are very clever observations about the process of drawing. β€œThe very act of drawing an object, however badly, swiftly takes the drawer from a woolly sense of what the object looks like to a precise awareness of its component parts and particularities.” Alain de Botton @alain_de_botton #drawing #drawingforall #drawingteaching @alain_de_botton #drawing #drawingforall #drawingteaching #mindfuldrawing #mindfulness #drawingprocess @etta_mac #drawingprocessvideo #isolationartschool #artistsupportpledge @artacademyondon @stbarbemuseum @westdeancollege @schoolhouseforart #artistsoninstagram #observationaldrawing @aspexportsmouth #calmingcontent
