People like to express themselves artistically and yet many fail to understand that this kind of artistic skill require learning and practicing. And many do not spend time developing and cultivating it. Very few people are born with the gift to draw well. Therefore, through learning how to draw simple and complicated subjects and to explore with pencil on paper, we would come to know what is lines, shapes, forms, proportion, perspective, shading, compositions and other art elements in a more satisfactory manner. We would be able to enjoy the joy of visual self-expression.
Drawing lessons could be one of the wonderful gifts that we could give to ourselves. It is especially more valuable for those who wish to draw and to develop their artistic interest but never know how and never had the opportunity.
One participant of my drawing session told me that her power of concentration improves after taking drawing lessons. Another told me that she has found a good way to creatively relax her mind. Another said her worries and problems temporarily go away when she start doing sketching and explore the still life. One said he experienced many rewarding moments during the practise and enjoyed satisfaction seeing his skill progressed. One said she never thought she could did it and now enjoy the surprise and admiration of friends. Yet another said it is a form of creative active meditation that is great for his mind. Another said he is happy that he had learned many things from me…
It is for sure that with proper guidance and personal dedication and diligent practice, learning and doing sketching and drawing (as well as painting) enrich and enhance our life.
