I realized recently that practicing art helps relax me. I suffer from anxiety. So finding things that help me to relax is a good thing. After I found this out, I invested in some art supplies including a sketch book, pencils, charcoals, chalks, oil pastels, markers, colored pencils.
Many years ago, I bought my children a book called Drawing with Children which introduces some basic concepts for learning to draw. Before reading through this book, I could only draw stick figures. I always just said, “I have no talent whatsoever.” I’m not saying I have talent now, but the book has made me realize that anyone can learn to draw. Maybe I will never be a great talent, but I can at least draw a decent picture, one that makes me proud.
I think if you want to try to learn to do some art, just go for it. Between books, websites, videos, etc., there are ways to learn some basics.
