Hobby 15: Drawing

Our first hobby of 2010 is drawing, presented by Jeff. Drawing is a visual art that makes use of any number of drawing instruments to mark a two-dimensional medium. It all began many years ago with cave drawings, eventually evolving into pictures on wooden tablets, but drawing began to flourish in the fourteenth century once paper became generally available.

Everyone has drawn something at sometime during their life, but not too many people take the time to sit down and just draw. As for me, I began to draw for fun during high school and I continue to keep up with this hobby. I feel it is great practice for me because I am studying to be an architectural engineer. While at school I create technical drawings, but I feel drawing in my own style is a great way to keep up and help improve my skill.

-Intellectually stabilizing

-Time consuming

This is an excellent hobby and I highly suggest you pick it up if you have some spare time. Don’t be worried that you will be bad at drawing, as you practice drawing more often, you will eventually be able to see an improvement. I can say this even though I still am an amateur, but when I started, my sketches were terrible but as time was spent practicing, I could see great improvements in my ability to draw.
