Learn drawing

To learn drawing, you can follow various art magazines, websites, and television channels or join an art class. Learning to draw is one of the first activities a child starts with. Everyone has an artistic style inside which needs to be discovered. As a child we remember drawing what we see all around. With progress of time we started drawing complex items.

A good way to learn drawing is to get admitted to an art school. Here you can learn about the basics of drawing and the use of colors. The first step to draw is to choose a good pencil. These are available in various degrees of shades and hardness. You should draw by the wedge of the pencil instead of the point.

You can start making wire drawings by following a design of a wire and drawing it on paper. Next you can try out blind contour drawing. This develops our eye-hand connection and observation skills.

With pure contour drawing you can draw the outlines. This drawing features the visible contours of an object. Clean contour drawing is an important skill used by cartoonists. Later you can learn cross contour drawing. Cross contour is essential in both value and line drawing. Through this drawing you can create a three-dimensional effect by converting the silhouette into a form.

You can also study further in art by enrolling in an art college. These colleges offer graduate and postgraduate courses in art. Here you can learn about the different uses of medium to draw. Various drawing and painting styles are also taught here.
