Tina Cintron, the Art Lady, introduces basic art shapes, lines, and directions to new artists. Using circles, ellipses, squares, cubes, rectangles, and more, she uses techniques that show foreshortening, overlapping, transparency, and opacity. As she draws, the Art Lady explains perspective and shading. Each section focuses on specific shapes.
