Drawing is one of the best ways to express yourself. But to do that, it’s helpful to know the fundamentals. After all, if you want to break the rules, you first need to know what they are. Luckily, My Modern Met Academy is here to help. We’re launching Drawing 101: Learn the Building Blocks of Sketching on our e-learning platform. It’s taught by our own contributing writer and outstanding illustrator Margherita Cole. In this new class, she goes in-depth with sketching supplies and teaches you the fundamentals of how to draw a variety of things.
Drawing 101 is great for learning the basics of sketching. Cole will go over her favorite materials—including a variety of drawing pens and pencils—before launching into techniques including hatching, cross-hatching, and stippling. She’ll then put those techniques into practice and show you how to draw a houseplant, a cat, and a dancer from start to finish. If that sounds daunting, don't worry—Cole breaks down all of her subjects into simple shapes, making each drawing approachable for all. You'll then watch her work, and you can even work alongside her.
