Drawing is Free

People who think they don’t know how to draw love it too, if they are given the chance. Drawing is mostly inexpensive, transportable, and can be made anywhere without much time or many resources. An artist and/or designer can keep drawing when all other opportunities to make work are limited. To know that you can always draw is liberating to a creative person. Sharing the experience of drawing with others creates energy in a room.
