The surest way to snuff out someone’s creativity is to tell him or her that he/she can’t draw. If that person doesn’t have a stubborn streak a mile long, there’s a good chance he/she will stop trying to draw and stop trying to express him/herself right there. If you always wanted to draw but you were told you couldn’t, it’s time to take back that dream. Anyone can draw, and it just takes foundational drawing skills to start. Luckily for you, there’s no end of good teachers who can help and who are willing to help no matter what age you are.
A Proper Assessment of Your Drawing Ability
Can you make a decent circle, square, triangle, and rectangle? If so, there’s an excellent chance that your drawing skills aren’t bad at all. You may be surprised to learn that foundational drawing skills start with the most basic shapes and add to these skills as you go along. If you can shade and highlight, then your skills are even better than you think.
Learn from a Pro Who Knows That Drawing Takes Practice
Many of the world’s most famous artists spend countless hours, days, and years practicing their skills. Even natural born talents had to learn a few things to create their masterpieces. Modern artists dedicate at least a few hours each day to their trade to keep their skills sharp. Knowing that, you too can draw. Take the first step in the right direction by contacting an artist who is willing to help you.
