Basic Shapes and Forms (12 lessons, $19.80)

In this exercise we are going to explore the white space of the paper using a maker. Start by making a line, a scribble shape, X shapes, doodles, zig zaggy lines, spirals, double lines, circles, parallel lines and overlapping lines that you can play around with repeating things over and over to build up your drawing. Change your marker for another colour and again experiment with dots, cross hatched lines, more curvy lines. Find parts of your doodle that could be coloured in, squares, diamond shapes, triangles, half circles and watch as a pattern starts to appear. Then take a few more colours and continue to build up your design. Have fun!
