Types of Lines

There are many ways to make marks on a piece of paper. You can make lines thick or thin,
long or short, fast or slow, light or bold, straight or curly, etc. Before drawing any objects,
we will be exploring all the different kinds of lines we can make.


Contour Drawing

Contour drawing is when your draw the edges of objects using one long continous line.
You can think of yourself as an ant, walking up and around and over the edges of an object.
Blind Contour drawings are made looking only at the object, but NOT at the piece of paper.
Regular contour drawings are made while looking back and forth from the object to the paper.
