Learn About One of the Oldest Forms of Art #ArtTuesday
“Drawing is a form of art that involves marking a two-dimensional material like paper with marks, lines, and areas of tone.”
Drawing is one of the most basic and fundamental art forms we have. Before most of us knew how to read (or even talk) we were marking up paper. My Modern Met has this deepdive on drawing with some history, styles, techniques and examples!
However, drawing has roots well before the Renaissance. Some of the earliest examples of human creativity are renderings made inside Paleolithic caves over 30,000 years ago depicting animals as well as figures. Since then, drawing evolved with civilization, utilizing different mediums and achieving more realistic representations. When we look at some of the best drawings today, they cover a breadth of styles showcasing the versatility of this age-old art form.
