Why should you learn to draw?
Knowing how to draw is not always a natural talent. Although some have a greater natural capacity than others, as in the case of other skill, learning to draw requires work and motivation. There are different reasons to start drawing with paper, coloured pencils or watercolours.
Drawing is especially recommended for children, since learning to draw a portrait or the human body develops motor skills. For older people, drawing helps maintain motor functions, dexterity and agility for longer.
Unfortunately photography and digital arts seem to replace perspective drawing or oil painting. The advantage is that you can let your creativity sore and share your vision of the world through your own eyes. Much more original than taking a picture of a place that everyone has already photographed. Free your imagination and express your personality with a comic book, a drawing or watercolour.
Above all, drawing is a pleasure. And like most pleasures it helps to distract you and reduce levels of stress and anxiety. You only have to look at the success of coloured mandalas to realise that even adults need to draw animals or characters to relax. Others feel the need to scribble to concentrate and others love to focus on drawing to get rid of negative thoughts.
In either case, drawing is beneficial for relaxation. Drawing can be an activity that you share with your children, family or friends, creating a unique bond with them. But learning the basics of drawing also means putting yourself in the shoes of an artist and discovering the history of art to better understand the intention of the drawer or painter. Taking an interest in great works, or perhaps not so well known ones, is an excellent way to develop your creativity and imagination.
As in any artistic discipline, drawing can serve as a form of escape. So even if your goal is not to become a cartoonist, knowing how to draw can open the doors to other professions: architect, landscape designer, fashion designer, graphic designer, illustrator, tattooist... The arts can help you follow a very different path to drawing. It is up to you to prove that having studied drawing in an art school was the best option as a professional career.
It is demonstrated that the right side of the brain is the one involved in the practice of drawing. This part gives free rein to creativity and allows us to express ourselves through drawing. And although as a beginner student you will have to focus on the different techniques (drawing a cat, an eye, a tree), drawing will help you above all to develop, little by little, your own artistic style.
What do you prefer? Caricature, sketches, digital painting, calligraphy... What would you like to do? Drawing is the most effective way to reveal your own personality. Street art, digital paintings, cartoons...try out different styles and forms to express your own personal artistic style. You can draw anywhere and your notebook will not leave you. Don't forget that learning to draw is not as complicated as it seems.
Learning to draw by employing different techniques can be fast if you are drawing faces, the human body (and especially the hand) or drawing live models. To begin with, it will be necessary to learn to draw geometric shapes and to handle the pencil with skill to perfect simple shapes. The oval, circle or square is the origin of a sketch in drawing. One does not launch directly into a charcoal portrait. It is better to start off with a pencil and a blank sheet of paper to learn how to draw the outline of a skeleton by hand or to reproduce the stages necessary to draw a character in a cartoon.
To draw a landscape, it’s necessary to become familiar with several elements, such as the vanishing point and the horizon line to draw in perspective and in three dimensions. Learning to draw also means learning some essential rules, just like in photography: the rule of thirds, proportion, contrasts, lines, colours and the elements that guide the eye when reading a drawing.
The rule of thirds consists of drawing imaginary lines (two horizontal and two vertical) that share the sheet in 9 squares of equal dimensions. The intersections of these lines are the points that are highlighted in a drawing and show where the most important elements should be placed. There are multiple techniques for drawing and these will vary depending on the material chosen (acrylic paint, pencil, dry pastel paints...). With hard work and perseverance, everyone is able to learn to draw and sketch correctly. Remember that everyone, even the best artists, have gone through this initial stage.
It is entirely possible to learn how to draw a manga, a horse or a car on your own. Many free online courses are available on Youtube or on blogs dedicated to the subject. After having bought the necessary material you can learn to draw online.
However, finding yourself alone in the face of learning can at times be discouraging. Sometimes, it is difficult to maintain your motivation if you do not follow a face-to-face drawing course. Moreover, learning a specific technique on the Internet is feasible, but you will not have the follow-up and feedback of the teacher. You will run the risk of adopting bad habits and, even worse, of not progressing. Knowing how to draw a house or a tiger may not be the objective you had set at first ...
Whatever your objective is, taking drawing classes will help you progress quickly and make you learn techniques that you won't even be able to find on the Internet. Or if not, after having acquired a good base, you will be able to sign up to an intensive course to learn concrete techniques.
Bear in mind that a person doesn't become an expert drawer thanks solely to a book or online video tutorials. Nothing is more valuable than practice to improve.
A private lesson will help you to progress at your own pace with your teacher. The class is personalised according to your objectives, strengths and weaknesses.
