Create your first sketch book by applying basic techniques for drawing by hand
Have you always wanted to learn to draw but do not know where to start? In this course the illustrator and educator Puño, will teach you the keys to become a draftsman from any level and at any age through an approach to drawing from a rational and playful point of view.
The course includes various dynamics and exercises designed to understand each of the brain processes involved in learning the ability to draw. In addition, they will serve as training for the development of this skill, ordered in the form of an instruction manual to create and complete the final project, a sketchbook.
This course by Puño is the perfect complement to "Original illustration of your hand and tablet " , in which the illustrator taught to digitally draw and print an illustration to several inks in a homemade way.
What's included in this course?
You will begin to know more deeply the work by Puño, the reasons of his love for the drawing and his experience teaching to draw.
Then Puño will explain some prehistoric references, neuroscience and creativity that will serve as motivation and conceptual basis.
Once the first concepts are understood, you will enter the proto-drawing phase, or what is the same, practice simple techniques proposed by Puño through the illustration of a hand, create patterns to fill a paper and make a collage by drawing on pieces of magazines .
Once lost the fear of the pencil, you will learn the ABC of the artist: the geometric forms, gestural expressions, literary resources applied to the visual and games for two or more cartoonists.
At this point, you will do some exercises based on restrictions, you will learn how to draw on the street and some games to perform along with many other cartoonists like you.
What is this course project about?
At the end of the course you will prepare a sketchbook of your own in which you can appreciate the evolution of your new skill and show others your progress. The idea is to record a video of your notebook and publish it online, attracting followers to build your own audience.
Who is it for?
The course is designed for people who want to start drawing, teachers and parents who want to learn new activities, anyone who wants to have fun and escape for a while with paper and pencil.
To complete the tasks of the course you will need a notebook, pencils, colored markers, ruler and templates with geometric shapes, zeal, old magazines, adhesive sandpaper. Optionally it is also useful to have a printer, ink, brushes and a watercolors box.
When developing the final project you will need a video or telephone camera (to record your notebook once it is finished), a friend (in case you are not able to record it alone) and an internet connection.
