  • To see how versatile even a single drawing tool can be, try our  ‘Making Marks to Music’
  • Keep a sketch-book and use that to experiment with different drawing tools.  You‘ll then have a useful record of different effects you can achieve with them
  • This exercise serves as a simple introduction for the beginner, or a warm-up for the experienced.  To work more on your skills, it may be useful to visit the BBC learning zone, which has a good range of video demonstrations about drawing.  There are many excellent books available about drawing, too – try your local library, bookstore or online stores for more ideas
  • If you’d like to develop drawing skills to a higher level, you may like to consider joining a group or class.  Either as a student or as part of a hobby group, this is a good way to progress, and share ideas and encouragement. See our Links page for opportunities
