My First Drawing Class

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” -Pablo Picasso

Is there something you always wanted to learn but keep putting off? That is drawing for me. I’m a doodler but never took lessons in drawing.

The first person who amazed me with her drawing skills was a classmate in 2nd grade when she picked up a Mongol pencil and drew Ariel of The Little Mermaid on a Grade 2 pad paper. I was impressed!

Artistic people continue to amaze me. Many bloggers and instagrammers I follow are great creatives (Hi Krishel!).  I also low-key fangirl on Filipina illustrators  like Valerie Chua, Crissey Si and Abbey Sy. Some time ago, my friend Des took art classes and I saw her joy in pursuing her creativity.

I finally enrolled myself in a drawing class to explore that part of me. To be fair, I can draw beyond stick figures but taking a class is a step further, and who knows when it becomes a leap?
