There’s something about moving a pen or pencil around a piece of paper that is at the same time calming and energizing. I believe drawing adds a whole new dimension to life because it prompts us to see in new ways. It promotes inspiration and creativity through expression. And, it provides fulfillment and satisfaction with progress and accomplishment. Each of us has a voice, a special uniqueness that we must share. On top of all that, learning how to draw is, quite simply, FUN. Love to Draw will celebrate the joy of drawing – all kinds of drawing, from first efforts to masterworks. The plan is to share ideas, experiences and encouragement as well as provide specific lessons and informational videos. It’s really not about becoming the next Rembrandt or Picasso (although you never know…), but more about sharing ideas, expressing your unique creativity more freely and having fun learning to let go of limitation. Practice, enjoy and practice some more.
In her book, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, Betty Edwards includes a quote from one of her students: “I don’t think I ever actually looked at anyone’s face before I started drawing. Now, the oddest thing is that everyone looks beautiful to me.” Join me on this journey, learn to draw and celebrate the amazing beauty that exists in our world.
