Whether you are learning to draw by yourself, or guiding beginner students through art lessons, your strategy is very similar. Both are hugely rewarding. It can also be frustrating - too often, students try to run before they can walk. It's important to balance fun, creative activities with technique building exercises, avoiding boredome while developing skills. Traditionally art teaching for children has emphasised self-expression, avoiding skills for fear of cramping creativity. But basic skills can be enjoyable to work on, and stronger skills allow students to more fully express their ideas. Use these lessons to build a 'toolbox' of skills that can be used for more creative art activities.
