Drawing Day: Don’t Fear The Blank Page, Let It Fear You.

Drawing Day

It’s Drawing Day! Yeah, this is probably one of our favourite days to celebrate. The best thing about it is that anyone can participate. Now, if you feel a bit uncomfortable because the last time you drew was in primary school, we encourage you to put pen, or pencil, to paper and see what comes from it…

Who knows, you might end up liking it to the point where you consider other drawing tools such as charcoal or crayons… imagine holding those little guys between your fingers again! Whatever medium you choose, we hope that today brings out your inner artist, and hopefully, you’ll flourish every other day.

If you’re a beginner or a pro, we want you to know that everything inside you is valuable and deserving to be shared with the world. Enjoy the day with us and help us bring much-needed appreciation and awareness to the artists and illustrators among us.

We have a couple of tutorials we want to share with you, but first, ensure that you visit your nearest PNA store today to gather all the supplies you might need, or want to experiment with, whether it’s graphite pencils, pen, ink, inked brushes, wax colour pencils, charcoal, pastel, chalk and other kinds of erasers, markers, styluses, etc.

  • Donkie Skets Deur Ronell Neethling

Ronelle het hierdie metode gekies, omdat so baie mense voel hulle kan nie teken nie, en dan voel hulle, hulle kan nie kuns projekte aanpak nie. Ons hoop die metode gee jou selfvertroue en is die gevolg van ure se genotvolle crafting.
