Let me be clear: It is possible, and the whole point of this blog, to discuss and teach others how to draw by writing about it. But I want this to be a site that teaches people how to enjoy drawing and how to enjoy working and learning at the same time.
There are many more ways to learn (as opposed to teaching) but these three topics are the best ways the community can benefit the most:
To share how drawing has affected us and how that knowledge has shaped us
To share strategies for enjoying drawing at all levels as a learner, as a teacher, and as a project leader.
To help the community understand drawing at any point in its evolution.
As for the third point, I think that it is especially important to share how drawing has inspired me to become a better artist. One of the reasons why I find so much inspiration in art is that it is, on a deep inside level, similar to the way God works (in contrast to life, which it is not). God is infinite and unknowable in space and time. There is really nothing to draw from. But drawing is an act of the creative mind — of drawing something out from one’s own thoughts and emotions. It is an act of intuition and inspiration; an act of God’s hand. This is how it has been for me. Drawing is the result of the power of that connection and is the ultimate expression of that power. How we create is why we are artists.
The most important part is that we share our stories so we can learn from them and come to better understand the world around us. You don’t have to be a good teacher. You just have to share what you love about drawing and what you love about the world around you.
If you would like to learn how to draw, please do so by taking the drawing class that is specifically designed for adults. I have been teaching these classes for years: My Class In a Class, or Class In a Class for Kids – both taught in this manner. If you’re interested in this process, you will find a full description of the classes here: How to Draw for Adults
