Why Is Sketching So Important?

It is essential to understand the importance of sketching and how this technique is essential for beginners, advanced, and professional artist. In our art academy, sketching is part of one of the main foundations of drawing.

When a student starts developing their sketching skills it is important they have their sketchbook handy, as it is a chronological map for their visual understandings. In their sketchbooks they are able to include doodles, mark makings, practice exercise and even include vocabulary terms which are also essential in a child’s growth for their understanding in art.

When a child first learns about sketching they are introduced to size, color and shape. These three elements of art create visual diversity.
