Can you be taught to draw? - 09-11-2008, 01:59 AM

Do you think anyone can be taught to draw? or do you have to have a knack for it? Ive been trying my hardest for the longest time, and i can never get any better. What are youre thoughts on this?




Was it something I said? Whatever it was, I didn't mean it. I haven't meant anything I've said for years. Except what I just said. I think

You can learn drawing, but you need lots of practice. A pantograph will help you.

That's a pantograph. A great tool that helps an artist to draw a picture.

To use it, you just need to tape it on a table, put a picture under the "pointer" area , put a blank sheet of paper a few inches away from the picture and all you have to do is trace the picture. It's really a big help for practicing.

There's so much that you can learn about art. Techniques, styles, etc. If you just practice and focus on getting basics and slowly advancing, you'll be awesome.


Thanks for reading!

Yes, you can be taught to draw. I don't even know why this would be called into question. It's pretty much a given. Yes, there are some people who have more of a natural talent for drawing than others... but they too still have to learn techniques and styles before they're good.

I've always liked drawing but I definitely had, and still do have a lot to learn.
