Drawing and creativity are critical parts of human communication and personal expression, and are essential for success in every profession. Drawing is especially valuable because it improves hand-eye coordination, as well as your understanding of form and shape. It also lets you quickly communicate ideas that may be difficult to put into words. To help you hone your skills, Von Glitschka has developed the 21-Day Drawing Challenge. The goal isn't to turn you into a professional illustrator or fine artist—it's about improving your drawing skills and creative thinking, no matter if you're an expert or have never drawn more than a doodle on a notepad.
Von will assign you a drawing challenge for each day. Take the time you need to finish each challenge, and then watch the video where Von shares his own hand-drawn solution. There are no right answers here; his solutions should serve as inspiration! For more encouragement, look no further than the chapter on inspiring drawers. Each movie profiles a different artist, including people like Kate Bingaman Burt and Mattias Adolfsson. So, step up to the plate. You're just 21 days from a new creative habit. And don't forget to share your drawings via Twitter and Facebook! Use the hashtag #draw21days.
Each of the next 21 days, you'll be posed with a different creative drawing challenge for you to complete. Here are five basic rules of creative engagement that apply to each daily challenge. Complete one challenge per day. You have a full day to complete the drawing challenge, so take your time and do the best job you can. Don't skip ahead. Make sure you get your drawing challenge done before you watch the solution video.
I want your approach to be fresh and not influenced by how I solve it. All drawings should be analog. We're keeping it old-school for this challenge. Digital drawing is great and exercises the same creative muscles as analog, but I want you to embrace the tactile for the next 21 days. Your drawings only need to be simple black and white, but color is always welcome and tracing is never allowed. Share your drawings with others.
Don't be afraid to share what you create each day on social media. When you do post, please use the hashtag draw21days. Have fun with it. Enjoy these drawing challenges, but remember they are challenges. So if you get intimidated, frustrated, embarrassed or even fail in your attempt, that's normal. Just laugh it off and don't quit. All that said, creativity is all about breaking the established rules.
So I don't want you to think you can't apply your own creative license to solve each of the daily challenges. In fact, I hope you do just that. So flex your imagination and let the next 21 days be a fun, creative adventure for you.
