But living with an "I can't do this" attitude for my entire life isn't really my jam. More importantly, I had been drawing once a month at a social drawing event a friend hosts and noticed that my drawing was getting better, even with the one a month comic exercises. It was gratifying to see the progress I was making. It was even better to be slowly shedding the I Can't Draw skin that had become constrictive.
To be honest, the drawing classes have been up and down. First class up. Second class, WAY down. Third class, up again. The fourth class was postponed due to icy weather, so we'll see how that class goes next Monday. The classes are going well enough that I'm willing to post images of my drawings, so you can see my progress.
Last drawing in the first class:
|Pair of wooden clogs|
I'm especially happy with that last drawing.
I've been blogging about my classes and the experience on my website, jenniferlohmann.com, so if you're curious, head over there and read more.
Have you ever taken on something that you knew you couldn't do? Took dancing lessons or singing lessons or drawing or whatever? How did it go?
