Welcome to Drawing & Painting Lessons
This free resource provides drawing and painting lessons that range from beginners to intermediate level art students.
The materials consist of Lectures, Assignments and or Exercises. The Assignments and Exercises are not intended to be done only once they should be done numerous times and revisited from time to time to build and reinforce each skill.
Many of my students are professional fine artists exhibiting and selling their work and others have little or no experience with drawing or painting. I have developed and tested these materials in the classroom, however they can stand on their own as lessons for any level of artistic endeavor.
My belief is that the core for all visual art are three sources: direct observation, the minds eye, the intuitive subconscious and combination there of. Tapping into imagination, intuition, and the powers of observation by exploring various ways of seeing, both perceptually and conceptually.
Experimental drawing assignments are also included to help you explore your unique individual aesthetic and drawing language. The use of traditional and non-traditional drawing materials will be encouraged.
Invitation: Please feel free to email me photos of your lesson results and or your drawings and paintings if you would like some help or feedback. You can email me Edward Burke
