“Why do we draw?” Because drawing is powerful and is the most basic passageway through which we can access the power of art to express our ideas, feelings, beliefs and truths. For visual artists, an understanding of the elements of pattern, proportions, line, form and volume offers the keys to unlock the doors to successful expression. Whatever mediums an artist chooses, learning to draw will give your work a strong foundation.
