THE IMPORTANCE OF DRAWING SKILLS
Throughout history, humans have used drawing as a means of expression, evident in ancient cave drawings like those found in Lascaux and Altamira. Drawing serves as the foundation for various fine arts, including painting, sculpture, and architecture; however, a drawing itself is a standalone work of art.
Allow me to share a quote from Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564), one of the greatest artists of all time:
“Let this be plain to all: Design, or it is called by another name, drawing, constitutes the fountain-head and substance of painting and sculpture and architecture and every other kind of painting, and is the root of all sciences. Let him who has attained the possession of this be assured that he possesses a great treasure… ”
“Let whoever may have attained to so much as to have the power of drawing know that he holds a great treasure.”
