In this video, Emily introduces participants to the basic art of sketching. Topics covered include blind contour drawing and sketching & shading (hatching, crosshatching, & blending) techniques. Feel free to pause the video at any point if you need more time to complete the activities. For this lesson, you need paper, a sharp pencil, an eraser, a coffee mug (or another small object), and an apple (or another piece of fruit). We hope you enjoy!
Express your emotions through art. Join Emily as she introduces the concepts of art therapy and the use of symbolism as a means for expressing emotion. We use the term "art therapy" to refer to activities that allow for creative methods of expression through visual art. We are not art therapists. Feel free to pause the video at any point if you need more time to complete the activities. For this video, you need three (3) pieces of paper; a pencil and eraser; markers, crayons, or other colouring devices; and a ruler (optional). We hope you enjoy!
