Nearly everyone has done some kind of drawing, sometime – directions from here to there, shapes in the sand with a finger or a toe, a precise memory, or scribbled daydream.
Drawings can verify life. If an object, idea, dream, pattern, place, fear, hate, love, or force of nature can be drawn, it can make more sense, verify the past and vivify the future.
Drawing is a human invention for human use. We can do what we like with it in an effort to be understood. Drawings come from drawings, and are about life.
With many traditions, materials, techniques, and skills, the craft of drawing is a well articulated language with both the limitations and freedoms of any language.
Drawing is similar to painting, printing, carving, weaving, sewing, building, welding, forging, or any process or practice that includes materials, techniques, skills, and form.
The world of drawing is a circle. Anyone can begin anywhere – from or toward objects, people, places, situations, abstractions, memories, loves, hopes, and fears. We can draw from or toward objects and subjects with all the craft allows.
