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.
I believe anyone can draw because everyone can be creative. Everyone watching this video has drawn at some point in your life. I know this because every child draws, regardless of where you live or what culture you grew up in. But at some point along the way, you may have stopped drawing. So, all I'm asking you to do now is to start drawing again. At the very least, for the next 21 days. If you're worried that your drawing skills aren't up to par, that's okay.
It's just another reason why you should start drawing again now. This course isn't about turning you into a professional illustrator, or a fine artist for that matter. It's about increasing your ability to draw regardless of where your skill level is now. Remember, anyone can draw. No one starts off drawing great. Everyone has room to improve, and that includes me. So, replace your fear of drawing with curiosity instead.
Don't be afraid of struggling, or even failing, with some of the drawing challenges in this course. It's normal when you try something new and it's also how you get better at drawing. I encourage you to do this 21-day drawing challenge with a friend. Challenge them to do it with you. That way, you can help each other along the way and hold each other creatively accountable. The nice thing about drawing is you only improve with time. The more you draw, the funner it gets.
And, as we'll see in the next movie, it has some incredible fringe benefits to problem solving as well.
