Arguably the most beautiful city in the UK and the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh is recognized around the world for its stunning moody architecture and beautiful scenic sights. No matter where you go in the city, from the central west end full of Georgian houses to the bustling streets of Newington, there is always something interesting to sketch. What’s more, the city is a hotbed for young and talented artists, with their work regularly featuring in famous museums and art galleries all over the world. So if you live in Edinburgh and are interested in learning to draw, why not take lessons today? With the help of a private tutor, you could easily improve your drawing ability and take one step closer to becoming a skilled artist.
Learning to draw is one of the best ways to develop new skills. For example, children can use drawing to develop their fine motor skills and push their creativity to new levels. Adults can also benefit, and with enough practice will soon develop a critical eye for detail, both in the real world and the art world. In the long run, it could also help your performance at work, and allow you to think outside the box when figuring out complicated problems. What’s more, according to several science-backed studies, drawing could have a massive impact on your short and long term memory capabilities. Adults who draw regularly purportedly have fewer issues remembering important information and are less likely to forget things like where they left the remote or keys - a problem most of us struggle with on a daily basis.
Additionally, drawing promotes better coordination skills by teaching you how to perform a wide range of wrist and arm movements. Over time, these will help with the development of mobility and dexterity in your hands, and further improve your hand-eye coordination. In a similar fashion, drawing can also improve your problem-solving skills. By gaining the ability to draw a visual representation of your problem, you will naturally have an easier time figuring out its solution. In fact, many of the best minds in the world use the “draw a picture strategy” to solve their problems. Drawing is also greatly beneficial for communication skills. By mastering the art of drawing people, many artists eventually develop a keen eye for recognizing subtle differences in body language and facial expressions, aspects of communication the average person pays very little attention to. From here, they can use these skills to get along better with their peers.
Lastly, much like writing, reading, and other mindful habits, drawing is a great way to relax if you feel stressed or anxious. The reason for this comes down to the rhythmic and repetitive motions involved in drawing, which help synchronize hand, eye, mind, and body, and lead to a relaxed state. If you suffer from stress, learning to draw could be a great way to calm yourself during stressful periods of your day. Furthermore, unlike other mindful activities, you can draw pretty much anywhere. It doesn’t matter if you draw at the library, on the train or during your lunch break. As long as you have a piece of paper or your notebook, you can easily relax and take some time for yourself.
Most people prefer to teach themselves when first learning to draw. However, this can quickly result in bad habits if you are not careful. Instead, it is a good idea to attend classes or private lessons that are designed to teach you the basics. Once you have a good grasp of these, you can then venture out into the streets and begin putting your knowledge to good use. The quickest way to improve as an artist is to spend time drawing new things, and there are a plethora of amazing sights in Edinburgh to sketch. For example, you could visit Edinburgh or Craigmillar Castle and try capturing the castles in all their glory, or spend some time sketching people going about their day at St Andrew’s Square. If you enjoy nature, you could spend some time drawing squirrels and birds in Inverleith Park or the Princes Street Gardens. On rainy days, you might enjoy sitting in your local coffee shop and drawing people coming in and out, focusing on their different expressions and mannerisms. If stuck at home due to work or study, you could try asking a family member to model for you, or practice drawing a bowl of fruit at various angles. What you draw in the beginning does not matter, as long as you practice regularly. After some time, you should notice a massive improvement in your drawing speed, as well as your overall ability to capture things in detail.
Figuring out what type of drawing lessons you want to enrol in can be difficult. Some people prefer to attend group classes while others prefer the flexibility of one on one lessons. Although both have their merits, private tutors are the better option when it comes to learning how to draw quickly and efficiently. Firstly, they provide you with lessons crafted to your drawing abilities and schedule their lessons to fit your requirements. Secondly, they can provide you with encouragement if you become discouraged with your progress, a typical problem for those starting out. Private tutors are there to maximise your potential and help you to become the best artist you can possibly be. But how do you go about finding a private tutor? First and foremost, you could try looking at notice boards in small businesses in your local area of Edinburgh. Failing that, you could look online on sites such as Facebook or Craigslist. However, you probably won’t know what kind of tutor you are getting until you have met them in person. Instead, you could use Superprof to find a private tutor who is both qualified and experienced. On our platform, you can browse, compare and message hundreds of tutors living in the Edinburgh area, all from the comfort of your home.
