As we stand on the brink of 2024, it's that time again – a time for new beginnings, for setting goals, and for New Year’s resolutions. Often, we focus on financial stability or physical health. But this year, why not turn towards something often overlooked yet equally vital – your creative spirit, the artist within you.
For many, art isn't just a hobby; it's a way of life. There are those who wake up every day with the urge to create, to express themselves through art. You too may feel this drive, or perhaps you've struggled to find time for what you love. As we prepare to step into the New Year, let's make a commitment to nurture our creative selves more.
Whether you're already an everyday artist or someone who hasn’t picked up a paintbrush in years, this resolution is for you. And for those who have always dreamed of drawing but didn't know where to start – let 2024 be the year you embrace your artistic journey.
At DrawLUCY, we're excited to support your creative resolutions. Through January, we're hosting an Artistic New Year's Resolution Sale, offering the right tools and courses to fuel your passion for art in the coming year.
Reaching Your Artistic Goals in 2024: 10 Essential Tips for Aspiring and Established Artists
Whether you're looking to enhance your current art practice or pick up a pencil for the first time, making art a priority can be both challenging and fulfilling. Here are some tips and strategies to help you stay on track with your artistic goals in the coming year:
Set Realistic Goals: Start with achievable targets. If you're a beginner, aim to draw for 15-20 minutes a day. For more experienced artists, maybe it's completing a piece every week. Setting realistic goals helps to avoid feeling overwhelmed.
Create a Dedicated Space: Having a specific area for your art, even if it's just a corner of a room, can mentally prepare you to create when you enter that space. It also helps to keep your tools organized and accessible.
Schedule Art Time: Treat your art time like any other important appointment. Block out time on your calendar and stick to it. Consistency is key, and even short, regular sessions can lead to significant progress.
Join a Community: Engage with other artists or learners. This could be online forums, local art classes, or social media groups. Sharing your work and seeing others' creations can be incredibly motivating.
Explore Different Mediums and Styles: Don’t be afraid to experiment. Trying new mediums or techniques can invigorate your practice and might lead you to your unique style.
Embrace Learning: For beginners, start with foundational courses or tutorials. Understanding basics like perspective, shading, and composition provides a strong base to build upon.
Set Projects or Themes: Give yourself specific projects or themes to work on. This can provide direction and purpose, especially on days when inspiration might be lacking.
Keep a Sketchbook: Carry a small sketchbook everywhere. Jot down ideas or doodle whenever you have a few spare minutes. This habit keeps your mind creatively active.
Reflect and Adjust: Regularly review your progress. Celebrate achievements, no matter how small, and adjust your goals and strategies as needed.
Get the Right Tools: The right tools can make all the difference, and the LUCY Drawing Tool might be just what you need to get back into art, create more, or learn to draw.
Embrace these strategies to help guide your artistic journey in 2024. Remember, every artist's path is unique – cherish your progress and enjoy the creative process!
