I like drawing, but I've always considered myself to be just ok drawer. I know that If I have lots of time and perhaps a model I can manage to draw something that even I like. But why is drawing sometimes so difficult and frustrating?
I work as a visual arts teacher and this year I decided to do everything differently. It all began when I read a book called One Drawing a Day by Veronica Lawlor. The book is full of exercises that you are meant to do every day and this way perhaps find your artistic potential. First I used these exercises with my students, but then I started to wonder if I could also find my own artistic potential. I promised my students that I would do all the same exercises that they have to do. I made this promise partially because I thought that this way I could understand better what my students are going through while doing their homework.
