Good Posture First!

Choose a high-quality, ergonomic chair to prevent your muscles from becoming strained and sore.

Draw on a slanted surface! When you draw on a flat surface, the top of your paper is farther away from you than the bottom and this can distort your proportions.

Place your feet flat on the floor or on a footstool when drawing in a seated position.

This lesson is free until June 28!
