Drawing with pencil is an art form that you can jump into at any age (Not started yet? Take our Start Drawing Course!) . It requires very few supplies and — honestly! — isn't hard to learn. In fact, if you know how to hold and use a pencil (check!), you already have the basic graphite skills needed to start working with this versatile medium.
