Line drawing is the most basic form of drawing.  Not only beautiful, it is an extremely helpful tool for an artist.  If you struggle with drawing and want to make it a part of your studio practice, learning the basic ideas involved will give you the ability to progress.  Join Elizabeth Geiger as she explains and demonstrates various types of contour lines and measuring.  Getting basic proportions correct, visualizing and depicting forms and organizing shapes and tones in your drawings will all be discussed.
