I can't afford to take an art class this summer, so I am working through the Kimon Nicolaides book The Natural Way to Draw: a working plan for art study. I thought I might create a group where people who were also interested could share their experiences: triumphs, frustrations, tips and tricks. Anyone up for a draw-a-long?

I might be. I have the book and like to practice drawing....how might we do this? Check in with the group once a day or something? did you start a group?

I wanted to see if anyone was interested before starting a group. May be we could set a schedule based on the book and people could post drawings on flickr if they want to?

well, I am a bit stumped. posting drawings is definitely beyond my tech abilities. I am lucky I know how to navigate this site and play my ipod a bit. I would be willing to stick to a schedule and type in some of my feelings, thoughts, experiences but I am not sure I am up to figuring out how to communciate my drawings and being willing to send them as they will most likely be very primitive.

Hope some others feel moved by this idea. The more the merrier.

"primitive" drawings are the best kind! I'd be intersted in this idea if I can figure out how to post large drwings...could I borrow somerones digital camera?Also don't just limit ourselves to Nicolaides book, how about Betty Edwards too? Anyone else you can think of?
