Drawing expert (comics, animation, life drawing, graphic design) for drawing classes in Edinburgh

About the lesson

The needs of the learners are the starting point of my classes. I discuss with my students the reasons they are learning to draw and on which projects they want to direct their skill. Based on this I direct the student's attention on what exactly to pay attention to (drawing is also an observation skill!), and on how to develop specific skills linked to the fields of design, animation or comics.

My classes are normally structured as follows:
- I present the topic, with visual examples, and ask the student to analyse what they see, directing their attention to what's important
- I show the student how to apply the rules discovered. I draw examples with my graphic tablet and I share my screen for the student to see the process
- I give in-class exercises to the student, so they can apply what is learnt
- I ask the student to show me what they did and provide feedback
- I give some homework relevant to the class. No homework is obligatory, but it's good for the student to practise.

About Elena

I am an experienced graphic designer who has worked for both big and small companies. I have studied drawing for more than ten years and explored different types of techniques and methods. I am interested in how, in order to learn to draw well, we first need to deconstruct the way we tend to see reality - i.e. in a schematic way. I've explored this topic also in my MSc dissertation. This knowledge will help me guide you in the fascinating yet mysterious steps we need to take to learn to draw "naturally". This is a first step that will allow you to build a strong skill that will be the baseline of all your future projects.
