This 67 minute tutorial is a mini-course for learning to do skillful drawing in four clear and simple steps. Within each step Dianne guides you through how to hold your pencil, how to use the pencil, how to move your arm, hand and fingers, and how spontaneous or deliberate you can be. You will find that these things vary according to the step you are mastering.
Dianne sees drawing as a skill that can be mastered by using the same approach musicians and athletes use to develop their skills. Having seen her method work with thousands of students over her fifty years teaching drawing and painting, Dianne is convinced that the key to skillful drawing is a dedication to developing a set of skills to the point that they become as automatic as driving a car.
Developing your skills frees you and opens you up to being creative. When you no longer have to struggle with the how-to, you’re potential is unlimited.
Typically, we have two misconceptions about drawing.  First, it is wrongly thought that drawing is done to be only to be shown whereas one of the most important uses of drawing is to work out ideas.  Second, it is wrongly thought that drawing should be precise whereas when searching out ideas, what becomes important is what the artist discovers rather than the drawing itself.
Drawing is indeed a powerful and delightful mode of expression and creativity.  Some of the most moving art works in existence and now being created are drawings.  But to limit drawing, or even painting, to production only is to limit potential for discovery.  After all, it is through discovery where  new ideas are born.
