<h2><strong>Finding the Best Drawing Tutors in Birmingham</strong></h2>

Learn to draw in Birmingham

There have been people living in the Birmingham area since 8,000BC, though these settlements were seasonal. However, a lot has changed in Birmingham since those days.

Originally, Birmingham was settled during the Anglo-Saxon era.

Learning to draw here is a way to draw upon a variety of different inspirations. There are plenty of different places in Birmingham where you can work on different drawing techniques.

Whether it’s the Birmingham canals, Cannon Hill Park, Lickey Hills Country Park, Birmingham Botanical Gardens, or Aston Hall and Gardens, there are plenty of places where you can draw inspiration.

Don’t hesitate to have a walk around the streets of Birmingham for inspiration.

That said, you can’t really draw in the streets of Birmingham.

Learning to draw should really start at a young age. Whether it’s in nursery or primary school, children should learn to use pens, pencils, poster paints, tracing paper, etc. Art is a great way to develop a child’s sense of imagination.

Later on, they’ll understand art culture and history and discover the greats (Courbet, Picasso, Gauguin, Braque, Munch, da Vinci, Delacroix, etc.).

Those who want to get better at drawing and at art, in general, can study art at GCSE and then at A Level.

This is a great stepping stone for those that dream of studying an art degree at university.

Adults and children alike can learn how to draw with workshops and associations. It’s a great leisure activity they can do a few hours per week.

The advantage of group classes is that they can meet others who are passionate about drawing and share advice and tips.

Birmingham has a large number of artists and private tutors who can help you learn how to draw.

<h3><strong>Teaching Yourself to Draw in Birmingham</strong></h3>

You don’t necessarily need to learn how to draw in art schools or in an art class. Drawing should always be enjoyable and some people find lessons too restrictive.

Furthermore, you mightn’t want to learn the same drawing techniques as everyone else in the class. Be it comic book art, manga, or graphic design, not every style is necessarily taught everywhere.

You might have also missed your chance to enrol on a course. Rather than just twiddling your thumbs, you could teach yourself how to draw in the meantime.

You’ll first need to think about what you want to learn. Why do you want to learn how to draw? Do you want to become a comic book artist, portrait artist, or graphic designer?

Knowing your objectives will help you make better decisions about which courses and resources you’ll look at. Whatever resources you use, you’ll need to learn the basics first.

Whether it’s rough perspective, primary colours, pencil control, light and shadow, still life, etc., the import thing is to start off on the right foot.

You need to put together a programme that suits your needs. Whether you’re drawing landscapes, using charcoal, studying anatomy or faces, drawing animals, creating characters, there are plenty of ways to start drawing.

If you’re going to teach yourself to draw, you need to be organised. If you’ve got a busy schedule, it can be difficult to set aside a few hours to practise and study new drawing techniques.

You’ll need to force yourself to practise at a given time every week. Unlike weekly lessons, you can draw when you want and where you want.

Wandering around Birmingham could be a good idea if you’re looking for something to do a quick sketch of. This former Anglo-Saxon market town has some really inspiring places.

Why not take inspiration from the different cultures living in the city?

<h3><strong>Why Get a Private Tutor in Birmingham?</strong></h3>

Learning to draw without a teacher may work for some but it won’t work for everyone. Some people need timetables and deadlines in order to effectively progress.

This doesn’t mean that you’ll have to attend art workshops or classes. You can also get in touch with a private tutor who teaches drawing.

Learning to draw with private tutorials comes with a number of benefits. You can learn to draw without too many rules. In fact, you and your tutor can decide upon a schedule that works for both of you.

This is a huge plus for those with awkward schedules.

Furthermore, if you learn to draw with a private tutor, you can tell them exactly why you want to learn how to draw and the type of drawing you’d like to master. You can learn exactly what you want to as your tutor will tailor the lessons around you.

The tutor will ensure that you’ll learn new things and be capable of doing everything you’ve dreamt of doing in terms of drawing.

Whether it’s with charcoal, oil, graphite pencil, acrylics, chalk, aquarelle, Chinese ink, ballpoint pen, coloured pencils, there are plenty of ways to draw and paint.

Furthermore, it's very rare that a drawing class as part of a group or in an art school will be aimed at getting students onto art degrees. You can get a private tutor to help you put together your portfolio and application, for example.

Private tutorials are also a good way to avoid traffic you may encounter when going to art classes. You can agree a time and a place for your private tutorials. Additionally, you can have the lessons in your own home or at your tutor's.

Not having to travel can save you a lot of time.

Birmingham is a big enough city to find the very private tutor that you need. On Superprof, there are plenty of artists offering their services.

<h3><strong>The Advantages of Getting Drawing Lessons</strong></h3>

Drawing lessons can help you learn how to draw things like a face or a landscape. After several hours of teaching yourself how to draw or learning with a private tutor, are you ready to start putting together a sketchbook or creating a comic?

Learning how to draw can help you in everyday life, too!

You can transfer these skills to aquarelle, charcoal, still life, life drawing, and generally just improve your creativity.

Some skills tend to be ignored once we grow up. As a child, we seem to be able to create entire universes in our imagination. This is a skill that is incredibly useful in the arts.

However, a lot of people become less creative as they grow up even though so many jobs require creativity.

Learning to create a landscape, a face, or an animal can be really useful outside of your drawing classes.

Working for several hours on a drawing can help you improve your concentration and perseverance.  Some detailed drawings can take absolutely ages to finish. You need to learn how to concentrate for long periods of time. Your patience will pay off.

All these artistic skills may even help you find new jobs.

There are a lot of jobs that require drawing skills. You could become a graphic designer, fashion designer, freelance illustrator, art teacher, animator, etc.

There are a lot of transferable skills you can learn from drawing. Some of them you can even teach yourself!

<h3><strong>How Much Do Drawing Tutorials Cost in Birmingham?</strong></h3>

Whether it’s painting, drawing, or art classes, there’s a huge number of different classes available for adults, teens, and children. Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, or expert will also influence how much your lessons will cost.

On Superprof, private tutors charge an average of £18 per hour for drawing tutorials. You should work out how many hours of tutoring you’ll need, too.

Drawing workshops are also available, though some can cost an absolute fortune The very best can cost several hundred for a couple of hours!

Regular group drawing classes tend to be more affordable.

Don’t forget that you’ll need to buy all the gear like pens, pencils, paper, etc.

With charcoal, graphite, pastels, acrylics, pencils, oils, etc., there are many different techniques and approaches you can use.

Be it a sketchbook, comic book, landscapes, or portraits, every artist is free to do as they see fit!
