Drawing Exercises

Through my own creative arts practice I have developed several improvisational drawing exercises aimed at developing specific creative thinking and basic drawing skills for graphic design students.

If a student feels comfortable and confident with drawing, they are more likely to utilize drawing as an activity in their creative process. If they do not have basic skills they may actively avoid drawing unless strong evidence of its value is provided.

My research aims to show that specific drawing exercises can ‘bridge the gap’ for those students who are reactant or inexperienced drawers and bring them to a point, where through their personal experience, they understand the value of sketching and therefore incorporate this activity into their own practice.
