Drawing is the key to creativity

Drawing is the first art form that most of us encounter. At a very early age we are given crayons and encouraged to draw. For the artist drawing is both a tool and an art form.

The drawn image is the closest that viewer can get to the soul of the artist. It is in the lines and marks are direct from the hand that made them. For the artists the drawing process allows us to get to understand the things in our world and in our minds eye.

“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things but their inward significance.” Aristotle (384 – 322 BCE)
