In the Era of Digital how important is it to learn Drawing? I give you five reasons.

One of the first questions my students ask is:

"Ma'am, why should we learn how to draw when there are so many new softwares to do the same??"

We wonder whether the art of drawing will get obsolete just as the art of cursive writing is being replaced by typing. Unfortunately we have not yet reached that rosy future where what you think can be created into a visual digitally.

1) Question Why you need to draw.

Your purpose to learn how to draw is essential. What are the reasons you need to draw? Is it helping you in your profession ( creatives....) or is it a pastime you need to destress with? If you are a creative, you have just no other option. You may learn a fancy software or a google sketchup, but to use it optimally and to full extent, everyone needs to learn the basics of drawing.

2) Explain things visually

In the facebook and instagram world of today, each visual speaks a thousand words and you have many many visually competing for your attention. People are said to respond more to information with visuals. Many a corporate presentation has been made more effective , enhanced by the basic skill of drawing on a whiteboard. With visuals, you can communicate with anybody, even if you don't understand thier language.

Start up drawing

3) Software has limitations, you do not!

You may be very good in the digital medium, but unless you are confident about your understanding of drawing, you would be highly limited by the scope of the software. Drawing allows you to explore beyond what is availible on a software.

4) Improves your ability to observe and visualise

Drawing is the first step to Creativity. Once you start drawing/ sketching, it rewires your brain. The right side of your brain gets triggered to be more creative, leading you to come up with more solutions in real life.

Doodling the thought

5) You can destress and have fun.

If this is a hobby for you, you live a charmed life. You can sail through every event in your life, recorded as a visual. And... you can improve your digital images much better if you understand the basics of drawing.

Who made Indian Art Modern?

Falguni Chakraborty

From the time a child enters kindergarten, to eight grades, art should be a part of their education....

The Bengal School of Art emerged in 1950s Bengal, specifically Kolkata and Santiniketan as an avant garde movement, establishing itself along the lines of the Indian freedom struggle and all its basic elements like Swadeshi movement (self-sufficiency in production), non-cooperation with foreigners, self-governance,... read more

The Bengal School of Art emerged in 1950s Bengal, specifically Kolkata and Santiniketan as an avant garde movement, establishing itself along the lines of the Indian freedom struggle and all its basic elements like Swadeshi movement (self-sufficiency in production), non-cooperation with foreigners, self-governance, unity of all Indians against foreigners, among many others. As a result, artists like Abanindranath Tagore, Benodebehari Mukherjee, Gaganendranath Tagore, Nandlal Bose, Asit Kumar Haldar, M.A.R Chughtai, Bireswar Sen, Debi Prasad Roychoudhury devised new methods of envisioning an independent India that would derive its strength from the rich cultural and historical heritage that it holds and from ideological and metaphysical traditions elsewhere in the world, not being restricted to the European understanding of modernity and progress. Europeans like E.B. Havell who were sensitive to the cause also catalysed the growth of Bengal school of Art by providing them a base to function within the Calcutta school of Art.

Talking in terms of art theory, the paintings of Bengal school of art are characterized by a redefining of historical Indian art styles, especially the Rajput and Mughal miniature art styles. Most artists of this group worked with watercolours, inspired to do so by the Far Eastern brush techniques and calligraphy. Indian Society of Oriental Art produced works that had definite Japanese characteristics, such as the ink and wash, actual lines in the final product, increased use of decorative floral motifs and landscape themes and the human features resembling Japanese features.

There was a very fine line between the Bengal School of Art and the Santiniketan School of Art. Kala Bhavan, the Arts school at Santiniketan established by Rabindranath Tagore in 1901, laid the basis of modern art in India. The school taught music, art and performance art ‘for the coordinated study of the different cultures’ and eventually became the symbol of harmonious coexistence of western and eastern cultures. It was meant to serve as the center for exploration and research into the vast Indian cultural heritage, but one can see influences from all over the world in the member artists’ works. The artists associated with Kala Bhavan were Rabindranath Tagore himself, along with Benode Behari Mukherjee, Abanindranath Tagore, D.P. Roy Choudhury, A.K. Haldar, Nandalal Bose, Kshitindranath Mazumdar and M.A.R. Chugtai.

Thus, Bengal School of Art became the first cohesive nationalist art group, that did not follow fixed rules of art in matter or technique, rather each followed his own calling in order to gather inspiration from any source to build the modern Indian aesthetic. The common feature in all Bengal school works, however, was the rejection of Western notions of modernity and materialism and embark on a rediscovery of the lost spirituality that was characteristic of ancient India.

Here are the 7 reasons that could convince anyone to take up Architecture as a profession…

1. An Architect is a sort of an inventor. Like an inventor who goes about making and designing new gadgets, you go around designing new buildings. Architecture is a very satisfying profession You’ll get a tremendous sense of delight after your concepts on paper transform into real buildings. You’ll know the joy of creation in this field of Architecture…

2. A course in Architecture is a lot of fun. Unlike traditional colleges where you must slog yourself in study halls and libraries, reading and writing all the time, a course in Architecture gives you the liberty to use the right side of your brain, the creative part. You get a lot of opportunities to showcase your creativity and ingenuity while designing structures.

3. Architecture is a very high paying field. Once you get through the course and pass out with good grades, you’d be pursued by large firms looking for fresh talent and new ideas. 

4. It is easy to define Architecture but the word has far deeper meaning than it implies. While you study Architecture, you get to study various fields of human endeavor, including Art, History, Material Science, Physics, Engineering anything and everything that can help improve the living environment of human beings. It is the most diverse subject you can find. And yet, this field attracts the most creative and romantic minds in the world.

5. The work of an Architect one of the most challenging and enjoyable imaginable. Every building is different. Every project is different. There is absolutely no monotony in life. The thrill and the challenge of work is exhilarating to say the least.

6. If you’re the kind of guy (or gal) who likes to work with his (or her) hands, then Architecture is the right profession for you.  In Architecture study course, you get to work with your hands. Its not just about reading and writing all the time, but you must have a hands-on approach on many assignments. Building scale models, making surveys, talking to people its a very active field.

7. Architecture may sound like a 9 to 5 office job, but its not. Its a lot more than that. Even as a student of Architecture, you get to work on real-life problems of designing functional buildings. If you like to hit the road every now and then, you’re in for some luck. In this profession, you get to travel a lot. You have to put your feet on the ground, and visit construction sites.

Many times people explore "Drawing Classes" without much knowledge about what what is offered and what they aspire to learn. Below are some terms and Art Lingo simplified for your understanding.
Drawing: (definition: A picture or diagram made with a drawing medium. The Art of Activity of making Drawings.) You learn to develop the skill to represent an object, outline a figure, plan or sketch mainly by use of lines. This is the basic step of learning.

Drawing Medium: Material that are used to create a work of art or a drawing. Some common media are paper, pencil, charcoal and pen & ink.

Pencil Shading: Shading is used in drawing for varying levels of lightness or darkness on paper by applying media , which in this case is a pencil. It provides 3 dimensionality, depth and interest to a flat drawing. It is done by choosing medium, applying intensity and special techniques. It is suggested to start pencil shading once your foundation in drawing is clear.

Pencil Shading

Sketching: (A sketch is a rapidly executed freehand drawing that is not usually intended as a finished work.) By Sketching you can draw a rough outline or rough draft version of a final piece of art. You reach this level once your understanding of drawing and shading is clear.

Rendering: Through rendering, we add shade and colour inorder to create life like depictions. This is the ultimate level you can aspire for. Your understanding of Drawing as well as Shading, in both Black & White and colour medium, should be clear.

Contrary to popular belief that sketching can take hours, there are ways to actually make it simpler and fast.

Whether you are wanting to communicate an idea to a set of people to support your pitch, whether you want to save a memory of something infront of you, quick sketching is an interesting way to record and communicate your thoughts. You don't need a lot of mediums and can make do with whatever you can find. A ball point pen, a stub of a pencil, charcoal, anything!

ProTip: I generally carry a small blank paper notebook, slightly bigger than the traditional phonebook. A handy pen and I'm all set!

You will need:

Paper, 2H, HB, 2B, 4B, and 6B pencils; pencil sharpener, kneaded eraser, ruler (optional)

What you need to do:

1. Outline or visualize a long drawing space in which to shade a graduation.

An ideal size is 2 by 10 in (5.08 by 25.4 cm).

2. Draw a graduation of values from light to medium that extends approximately halfway across your drawing space.

Remember to vary the density of the lines, use different grades of pencils, and vary the pressure you apply to the pencil.

To create smooth transitions, you may need to go back over small sections of some values to make them darker or lighter. You can add additional curved lines in between other lines to darken a value or use your kneaded eraser to dab away sections of a value that is too dark.

3. Continue drawing squirkles closer together and pressing harder with softer pencils until your graduation transitions into darker values.

You should be more than three-quarters of the way across your paper by now, with room remaining on the right to add the darkest values.

4. Continue to the end of your drawing space, drawing the squirkles closer together and pressing a little harder with soft grades of pencils.

But don't press too hard! Remember to let your softest pencils help you achieve values that graduate from dark to almost black.
