I was inspired to learn to draw after our trip to Europe last November, because no matter how good at photography I get, you will most likely be able to find a very similar/better picture on Google but a drawing, my drawing would be unique. It would be my own personal recollection of the event or scene and then my translation of that into a one of a kind drawing. That is what got be excited about learning to draw, giving my unique spin to what I see in my travels and daily life.
The other reason for wanting to learn to draw is that I had a deep desire to learn a new skill. I have a life long need to learn and lately I had spent way too much time binging on Netflix. It feels good to wake up on Saturday morning with a purpose, I go to bed on Friday nights excited because I know I have art class early the next morning. I must be really excited because I'm not normally not so happy at eight on a Saturday morning.
I'm two classes in and so far, so good. We've did some still life drawing on our first class and learned about one point perspective at the second class. We also did a bit of free form drawing of a paper bag at the end of the second class.
