Hi, my name's Patricia, I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you some block letters activity art. So, when you want to start drawing block letters, it's tough to just you know, pull out a pen and draw something like this, possibly. For me, I've been doing it for years, so you know, when I'm drawing block letters. I'm thinking, block, the language of block. Basically, here's your block letter, you can add in more dimension over here. Alright, but let's say, you've never done it before and you don't know where to start, here is an activity. Draw out your letter, we'll start with A. On a big, like, just on letter size piece of paper, you've got the A. After you draw it out, take another pen and shade it. You're going to draw thicker lines, to the point where you have something that looks like this, a block letter. Now, to practice getting that block letter into the lines of a block letter. You can take another pen, I'll take green, and you can draw around it. And there you have your lines for the block letter. And then, the next step is a little more difficult, because you have to think in dimension. So, here you know, depending on what view you're looking at it from, you're going to add dimension to it. An easy way to, for you know, to think of dimension or to help with your dimensions. Is if you go to an art supply store, they'll often have paper mache letters. And you can buy one of those and then, you can use it as a model for your work. Again, let's do another letter, we'll do H this time. So, we have our H, again, you're just going to do thick lines like this, highlight it. So, you have a thick block letter. And then, in order to get the lines around it, you just go around it with another pen, we'll do blue this time. So, you're going to go around the outside of this letter. So, you have your block letter and then, you add dimension. Again, the dimension is a little more difficult, but if you practice, you will get there, because practice does make perfect. So, there you go, there's two block letters, have fun practicing, enjoy.
