  • The Elements of Drawing

    Nifty little drawing vodcast from Oxford University through iTunes U.

    Stephen Farthing R.A. presents eight practical drawing classes using John Ruskinís teaching collections to explain the basic principles of drawing. This series accompanies 'The Elements of Drawing', a searchable and browsable online version of the teaching collection and catalogues assembled by John Ruskin for his Oxford drawing schools.

    This post is brought to you by the letter E and the number 9. Those are the buttons I push to get a Twix out of the candy machine.

      Thanks very much. I can use a bit of a refresh myself. I love going back and relearning these things. It helps me big time to keep a hand on techniques.
