It's never too late to learn how to draw. Even people who say they were born with two left hands have an inner artist inside them, just dying to get out. Taking art classes and drawing classes is a great way to nurture your inner artist.

Many people want to learn how to draw because they believe it's an innate talent. Cave men thousands of years ago drew animals being hunted. Medieval and Renaissance history is filled with beautiful pictures and sketches drawn by great artists. Believe it or not, many of these artists were taught their trade.

If you want to learn how to draw, you need to learn how to observe. In the past, artists were not able to rely on photographs and video images to draw from. They had to train their eyes to see people not as objects but as intersecting shapes, lines and angles. It's much easier to draw something you can look at.

You have to be willing to practice if you want to learn how to draw. You will not be an expert illustrator after a few drawing lessons. Drawing is a skill that must be practiced to be perfected. The less you draw, the worse your drawings will be. Draw a little something every day and you will feel more confident in your drawing ability in no time at all.
