5 Tips for Building a Sustainable Drawing Habit

Dec 27, 2022

Starting a drawing habit can be a great way to express your creativity and improve your skills. Here are a few tips to help you get started:

  1. Set aside time for drawing: Choose a time that works best for you and try to draw for at least a few minutes every day. You can start with just a few minutes a day and gradually increase the amount of time as you get more comfortable.
  2. Find a place to draw: It's helpful to have a dedicated space where you can draw, whether it's a desk in your home or a quiet corner in a park. Make sure you have all the supplies you need, such as paper, pencils, and erasers.
  3. Practice regularly: The more you draw, the better you will become. Try to draw something every day, even if it's just a quick sketch.
  4. Experiment with different materials: Try drawing with different materials, such as pen and ink, charcoal, or watercolor paints, to see what you like best.
  5. Keep it fun: Don't worry about creating perfect drawings. The most important thing is to have fun and enjoy the process of creating.

By following these tips and making drawing a regular part of your routine, you can develop a strong drawing habit that will help you improve your skills and express your creativity.
