Confidence can be a hurdle learning to draw. I liked to show examples of people's drawings that progress from untutored to a few weeks experience. The ones in "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" show this progression.

Subject: [SCIART] teaching adults to draw
I am teaching a drawing class to adults who have little to no drawing experience. I am finding that many of them are struggling and are disheartened by how hard drawing is. Does anyone have advise on trying to keep their spirits-up? I have only taught 2 classes so far, one on value and how to measure proportions. I have 3 more to go.
