There's nothing like a little challenge to kick yourself into gear. So why not commit to drawing every day for the next week, month, or even (gasp!) year? Whether you're stuck in a creative rut or just want to get the hang of a new skill, putting pen to paper on the regular is just what you need. Challenge accepted? Here's how to make it over the finish line.
Get your pencils ready, because we're on a mission to make you an artist! Get started drawing with hours of instruction on mark-making, shading, creating form and so much more.
Turn your inspiration into action. We'll show you how.
Pick Your Medium
Meet your instructor, Hetty Easter, as you discover a variety of charcoals, erasers and blending tools that will help you bring your drawings to life. Next, Hetty offers professional tips for taking photos that capture the unique characteristics of each child, including techniques to capture flattering light and natural poses.
Discover Your Style
All you have to do is look at a cool sketch of an urban scene and the urge to try it yourself comes knocking. Am I right? And once you get comfy with this way of documenting the world around you, you'll never run out of fascinating subjects to draw. Problem is, getting started can seem a little scary. But not anymore!
If you tend to focus on realistic drawings, then shifting into the abstract can be a bit of a head-scratcher. But once you get rolling, you'll love this fun, stress-free form. After all, there are certainly no rules about what your piece should look like in the end! Abstract drawing techniques are great because they help us see things in a different way, and they really stretch the imagination.
