25 – SPONTANEOUS A TO Z OF ART

So Free Art Podcast Episode 25 - Spontaneous A to Z of Art, with Transgender Artist Sophie Lawson

This lil episode is a Spontaneous A to Z of Art, where I go through each letter of the alphabet and talk about the first art related word that springs to mind. Some of my spontaneous A to Z of art highlights are –

  • B for Boring Exercises, where I talk about a drawing exercise, that while boring at times, is valuable for improving your hand to eye coordination
  • C for Crap Drawings, where I talk about how crap drawings seem to be part of the process of creating good drawings
  • O for Orange, which somehow gets me talking about spheres and how they’re good for practicing shading
lil ART TIP
USE A MAKEUP BRUSH TO KEEP YOUR DRAWINGS CLEAN, TIDY AND SMUDGE FREE :)

Hope you enjoy this one.

If you want to share your own A to Z of art for me to read on the show, or if you have any questions/topics you’d like discussed in future episodes, please get in touch. You can message me down the bottom of this page, or by sending me an email
