Drawing is a Natural Process

Drawing is a Natural Process

For centuries, schools have established the normal, natural process of drawing as an art, like painting. Drawing as a creative process is forgotten and distorted beyond recognition.

People see it as a professional skill, whereas it is about freedom, creativity and a way to observe and learn about the world around us.

Drawing is about the process, without any need of 'performing' or receiving any evaluation.

Drawing as a Tool

Drawing as a Tool

  • Drawing is a problem-solving visual tool. It helps us think better and provides clarity to a cluttered mind.

  • Authentic pen and paper drawing help us break free from the limiting domains of technology which digital tools like Google image search or drawing software provide, indirectly hindering our creativity.

  • Drawing also makes us slow down, observe and pay attention.

  • Drawing promotes close observation, analytical thinking, patience, and even humility, making it one of the best ways to learn.
