I always teach adults like the kids.  I use simple shapes. Circles, squares etc.   Help them to see shapes within shapes.  Also I play games.   Give them only 5 min to do a quick draw, or by memory.   Hope this helps.  Holly Butlett

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.
