“I am not good at drawing”

If you have ever said this statement or heard your children say this, just remember that practice is key. Don’t worry about the outcome and just start drawing. Sometimes the best way to overcome negative self-talk is to draw just a little each day to help build overall confidence. 

Different Ways To Draw

Also, encourage beginner artists or children to add their own details or remind them that drawings following step-by-step tutorials are better when you add your own twist.

Other Easy Drawing Tips

  • It is always a great idea to start with simple shapes.

  • Instead of always drawing from tutorials, try to draw from observation. You will be amazed at what can be seen in real life from different angles.
  • Embrace mistakes and know that you are learning and growing in the process.
