Be a Better Artist Thanks to the Internet

Thanks to the internet, it is possible to access a wealth of information to help you become better at, well, anything!  This post is designed to help you to become a better artist (in almost any medium).

This first site is devoted to helping you learn how to draw various things. Visit DragoArt to find tutorials on animals, landscapes and much more!

Want to learn how to paint?  Check out the Painting Lessons section at Art is Fun!

For printmaking, I'll send you over to Free Art Classes- but beware, there's much more than printmaking to learn here!

The point of this is, if you want to learn something new, in this day and age of the internet, you don't have to go to a special school and pay out your booty to learn it.  If you're resourceful instead, you can learn it all from the internet.  (It might not make you the best artist on the earth, but it will at least give you enough to get honing your skill)  

As yet another reason for you to think about working on an art skill, many scientists agree that the arts can help reduce stress and anxiety, improve well-being and enhance the way we fight infection.  Art aids in the recovery of post-traumatic injuries, and improves the symptoms of depression.  Remember that the arts are no substitute for medical help when you need it. But they can still bring health benefits. If you enjoy writing or any other art, go for it. You don’t have to be “good” at them for them to be good for you.
