Summary

Discover your unique inner artist through 21 intuitive, process-based lessons in drawing with graphite pencil, colored pencil, and ink—then joyfully share your works of beauty with the world.

In Drawing Is for Everyone, artist Kateri Ewing—author of Look Closer, Draw Better and Watercolor Is for Everyone—guides you through a series of simple creative drawing projects using a soulful, meditative, and reflective process. Whether you’re drawing for the first time or are an experienced artist, you’ll discover and deepen your creative potential through these exercises, because everyone can make art. Each lesson includes two art pieces, one to keep, and then a smaller one, such as a postcard or mini painting, to share or send out into the world, to spread their color, creativity, and joy in new places.

With Drawing Is for Everyone, you can learn how to build a daily drawing practice and how to set intentions and create, even if you have just 10 minutes a day. The projects draw inspiration from poetry, music, literature, and the natural world, and invite experimentation with a variety of sources. You'll pursue your personal passions through accessible projects as you build your drawing skills, confidence, and creativity.
