Drawing lessons are supposed make the budding artist become aware of how to translate the 3-D images that the eyes see into a draw-able 2-D image to fit somewhat proportionally onto the drawing surface. There are a couple of teachable methods that artists have used for centuries. One is the grid method and another is called sighting. Let's not forget that most of the time, there is no method; people just draw.

The shoe drawing is a "theme" drawing <- read more at the link.
