Almost everything made by mankind started as a drawing or sketch of some kind. From the humble toilet roll to the latest iPhone, they all began existence as a drawing, because at some point they had to be explained to somebody. Everything you use every day in school, at home or on your journey started out as a drawing!
One of drawing’s greatest strengths is its ability to convey complex ideas or messages in a clear and understandable way. Drawing has and continues, to change the world.
Why is drawing good for us all?
- Improves your memory
- Makes you more observant - you see more around you and you notice more!
- Improves concentration skills
- Makes you more resilient
- Reduces stress
- Makes you happier!
