It Starts With Drawing

Drawing, an art form that has been around for centuries, is considered the foundation of art among artists in their early years. From primitive rock drawings before language was invented to the oldest known drawings from 30,000 to 10,000 B.C., drawing evolved throughout history and paralleled the development of painting.

Today, many artists draw to structure, plan, and negotiate space. These drawings also serve as studies for later paintings or sculptures or as an art form on its own. As an image does, drawing uses lines to represent objects, ideas, emotions, and abstract concepts, emphasizing form and shape rather than color and mass. It offers the broadest possible scope for creative expression, enabling artists to create bodies, space, depth, three-dimensionality, and even movement.

Drawing also positively impacts mental strength and skills, such as focus and strategic thinking. When people draw, the brain becomes active, and endorphins are released while creating new connections and pathways. Drawing requires using both the left and right sides of the brain, with the right side responsible for creativity and the left for logical thinking.
