Teaching Drawing

Final drawing series by Andrew Kuhrmeyer

I’m a couple of months late in posting this, but I wanted to mention here my experience of teaching Drawing at Bethel University in January. I was happy to get this opportunity to teach at the school where I went to college. My students came from many different majors and very little art background. We focused on observational drawing from still life objects. Between in-class drawing and homework, the students drew for several hours a day for three and a half weeks, and the practice paid off with noticeable improvements in students’ ability to draw what they could see. The final project was a series of three drawings. The students chose subjects that were meaningful to them, such as musical instruments or sports gear.
