Draw in 3D – Look and see

Assalamu allaikum,

Our first course was for introducing drawing to students using graphite and charcoal. I decided to change things and use ink. Most students are not introduced to this medium and I thought it would be nice for them to use it. Here are some of the drawings that I doodled over the first week of getting the new supplies

We had our first drawing classes this weekend. Alhamdulilah, it went very fine with the help of Allah and with the help of great students and cooperating parents. In sha Allah, every weekend there are classes will be a new post of all the students progression, some of their work and the homework they can do at home.

We had 4 classes this weekend. Each class was customized for each student and their skill level. List of materials used and where to find them will be linked down below.
