April showers bring... May watercolor flowers! This project is a win for any artist, no matter where you are on your watercolor journey. And it's a great way to build your skills in manipulating tints and shades. (Believe it or not, this gorgeous composition only requires four basic colors!)
You might think that drawing is like touching your tongue to your nose: Some people can do it and some people can’t. But that’s actually not true. Drawing is more like driving: The more you practice, the better you get.
Sharpen your pencils, grab your best eraser — and maybe even round up a few new materials to try! These projects have our hearts for sheer fun factor, and because each one has something valuable to teach a budding (or already blossoming!) artist.
So you're comfy with the watercolor basics, and now you're looking around for something to paint. We've gotchu. These fave projects range from sweetly simple to ahhh-mazing, and we love every single one. Time to wet your brushes!
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.
Crosshatching is one of those terms that makes you go "Huh?" even though you probably know what it is. You just might not know that you know.
One the of the greatest things about drawing is that it’s a skill you can continue to refine throughout your life. No matter how old you are or how long you’ve been at it, drawing will continue to challenge you. You’ll never be bored as long as you can pick up a pencil!
