on drawing

Added on by lauren frances evans.

I'm currently in the thick of teaching 3 sections (of various levels) of drawing this summer, and it's really got my head spinning (in more ways than one).

Our model yesterday shared this article with me which was prompted by this comment by Jerry Saltz...

Upon reading his response (and challenge) to Jerry, I clicked my way to Ruskin's Elements of Drawing. The full text is here on project gutenberg. Though I probably won't be assigning these exercises to my students any time soon, they embody and reinforce the value of really seeing which I am constantly shoving down their throats (whether they realize it or not).
