Beginners drawing – cross hatching

Cross hatching is drawing overlapping lines. Many artists use cross hatching as a key component of how they draw forms, as a way to illustrate volume, shadow and even add drama and excitement to a drawing. Knowing how to cross hatch effectively, as well as when and how to use it, can push your work forward to the next level. This course could dramatically change the look and quality of your work.

Jason believes that anyone with reasonable sight and co-ordination can learn to draw. In the 27 years he has been teaching drawing to adults, he has never had a student who did not improve their skills in a matter of weeks.

You will learn how to draw using pencil and pen.

So why not begin drawing again and boost your confidence by creating drawings that you did not know you were capable of ?
