If you want to learn to draw to a standard you're happy with, you need to get the basics right from the outset.
So many would-be artist's experience is that this vital foundation is overlooked when they begin drawing and painting.
Time and again, people relate how they missed out at school, even though they liked art and wanted to learn to draw.
It may be because they misunderstood what the teacher was saying or they missed a class and the tutor didn't have time to go back over a topic just for them.
So they fell back, became disheartened and lost interest...
Or, and this is quite normal, some take a little longer to pick up the required knowledge.
This isn't a problem.
In fact, when they do master it, because they've had to work a little harder, they often have a more thorough grasp of the basics.
It's because everyone who wants to learn to draw does so at different speeds and in different ways.
Even when people are older and would like to join an adult art class, they frequently shy away. They wrongly assume that everyone else in the class will be really very good except them and they'll be shown up all over again.
Whatever the reason, art is lost to them, maybe for good. And sadly, they are probably lost to art as well.
Well if you want really to learn to draw and enjoy it along the way it needn't be like that!
