Whether you've never done any drawing before or have just bought a new type of pencil or pen, a great way to find out what each pencil can do is simply mark-making. Scribbling, doodling, call it what you will mark-making with the intent of exploring your new medium - without the pressure of creating a drawing - is a great way to gain confidence and get to know your materials.

To do this lesson, you need five minutes, some sketch paper, and any pens or pencils that you'd like to try out.
