I have met some learners who sign up for art classes with some unhealthy ideas which end up restricting them along the way. I thought I would share some of these thoughts and give my ideas on why they hold people back.
‘I Don’t Want to Spend Money On Materials’
I meet several learners who are on a budget, which I understand. I am not a tutor who tells students to go out and buy everything (and I have met ones like this). I think this is unrealistic for those on a budget and you don’t have to buy everything or even the most expensive materials to get good results.
There is a line however where it becomes limiting, when a learner just doesn’t want to spend anything on materials. You can’t expect to learn about materials and experiment if you won’t buy more than one pencil and a sketchpad! Now if you just want to draw fair enough, make sure you do a drawing course and just that, otherwise some purchases will be necessary.
