I do think that learning how to draw realistically is a necessary basic
skill one should learn when studying art. That does not mean everyone
draws the same thing in the same way, we see things differently and every
art teacher(like other teachers) should meet every student on her or his
level. Model drawing is one of the best drawing exercises we can get and I
actually feel that like the musicians have to practise scales and exercises
every day to warm up, so is it necessary for artists(visual) to draw a life
model preferably every day.
And finally I do not understand this comment. And I certainly donīt know
what has been taught in american schools for the past 40 yrs. So could
someone explain, please.
