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.
