Want to learn how to draw? Survey
A quick Survey
I am gathering information for future projects that I am working on. If you have been following my blog, you know how much I love drawing and coloring. I have been doing it my whole life, and I love teaching art to others. My job is to make it look easy, even for beginners. In my opinion, everyone is capable of beautiful coloring if they are just shown how. However, one thing that people consistently say to me is:
"But I can't draw, I'm not an artist!" or
"I don't think I can do that, I've never taken a drawing class!"
And I am the one who gets frustrated because coloring has very little to do with drawing. When someone says this, they are setting themselves up with a negative- I think I can't do it, therefore I can't.
My question is:
If Copic/I began teaching basic DRAWING classes for adults, would you be interested?
Why? Has it been your lifetime dream? Have you discovered crafting in the last few years and now you are craving the chance to draw? Did you take a few classes years ago in college and now you want to learn again?
Tell me about it! Let me know your creative dreams and ambitions! Let me know if you'd want to see workshops, retreats, online classes, or any other idea you have. Let me know if you are plenty happy with what you currently do and are scared of the idea of drawing your own picture. Let me know if you are scared stiff of drawing. No holding back here, people!
Please leave a comment on this post, and Monday I'll announce a couple randomly chosen winners for Copic Bumper stickers to thank you for your comments. Sorry, the prizes can only go to people in North America, but anyone from around the world is welcome to leave a comment. I look forward to hearing from each of you :)
Now, may you all have a great weekend, and the confidence to go out and do something creative out of your comfort zone!!
