Every single piece of art no matter how complex, or how simple are made up of a combination of 5 elements. Those elements combined make up shapes that we know of like squares and triangles.  And with those shapes anything can be drawn!  People who are just learning how to draw want to jump ahead and go straight to the details, or the details of what they want to create intimidate them, but if you keep in mind that a drawing is nothing more than a combination of dots, circles, straight lines, curved lines, and bent lines then you can draw anything!

So if you ever become intimidated, If you’re ever not sure how you should draw something, just ask yourself “what shapes make this up?” If you break it down piece by piece you’ll be sure to draw it, I guarantee!

And for those of you who don’t know, I’m a private drawing instructor at PLaY! Music and Art in Canton, GA. If you’re in the area and want to take drawing classes with me stop on by, I’d love for you to be one of my students!
