Can’t Draw? Here’s How to Learn

Before delving into the five exercises suggested by artist Whitney Sherman at Creative Live, bear in mind an age-old principle: Regular practice is always needed to improve and maintain skills of most any kind.

That said, here are there exercises that are billed as being able to "turn anyone into an artist":

  • Doodling: Since anyone can doodle, this might be a good place to start. After all, the choice of design is entirely yours, as are the colors and scope of the pattern(s). What's more, doodling can boost "visual literacy" and help to organize ideas, however unconsciously.
  • Entopic Graphomania: This fancy term involves connecting a series of dots on a page in order to create a series of lines and shapes. One easy way to get started: Place the dots on a page of printed words, and then connect them with straight or zig-zag lines. The exercise helps to illustrate the importance of choices in shaping a work of art.
