Drawing Eggs and Cylinders With Dimension

So, from ellipses, we can start to talk a little bit more about cross contour. So an ellipse is an ellipse, it's like an opening, it's a curve... But how would that apply to, let's say, drawing an egg? An egg is an egg, right? An egg is an egg when it's an outline of an egg. So I'm gonna demo it here for a second then I'm actually gonna give you all eggs, alright? And they're still warm because they hardboiled them so it's kind of nice if you're chilly. (giggles) So at home you can grab an egg from the fridge, you can try this. But I'm just gonna go ahead here and I'm going to work with drawing this egg. And let's see, here's the egg. Alright, it's a nice looking egg isn't it? Yeah. I think it's free range. (participants laugh) So this idea of drawing the egg and then imagining an ellipse that goes around the egg, alright?

###### Melisa Williams

I am taking all of Amy's beginner drawing classes. I like them because her approach is really concise and just very helpful. I am learning lots of techniques. I was one of those "I don't have talent" people and this makes me realize it's a skill anyone can learn if they want to. Thanks Amy!!

A great course to learn how an artist visualizes objects to make their drawings look 3-dimensional on a 2-dimensional surface (such as your paper). Awesome!

###### Joy Hunter

I've SO wanted to learn to draw and have tried different things, I've tried tracing photos, creating a grid and then putting in the lines section by section, but this is teaching us more - the ideas behind just the mechanics. I love she tells us to feel a connection with the objects we're drawing. I really feel like I'm getting better.
