The goal of Drawing Basics is to show you how to draw anything with more confidence – while helping you grow your own natural, drawing style. Yes, even if you’re just starting.

Crushing the most common myths about drawing

Most people get discouraged from drawing early on because of these myths.

Myth 1: You have to be born with an artistic talent. 

Probably the most common myth about drawing is that it’s some magical talent you’re born with.

This couldn’t be further from the truth. Growing your drawing skills only requires the interest and desire to learn how to draw. That’s it!

Drawing is a learnable skill.

Myth 2: Drawings have to be photorealistic

Your drawings don’t need to look like a photo replica of whatever it is you’re drawing. The medium of drawing needs to be embraced for what it is. Interpreting what you see onto paper in your own, natural way. This means your lines will be expressive, there will be smudges and imperfections. Which is what makes drawing such a unique medium.

Myth 3: “I don’t have time to learn how to draw!”

What makes drawing so much fun is the spontaneity of it. With just a few minutes of drawing here and there throughout the day, you’ll improve your drawing.
