National Drawing Day is celebrated on May 16 of every year. Drawing is a form of visual art in which the individual uses several drawing instruments to mark the paper or another two-dimensional medium. Tools like graphite pencils, pen, and ink, inked brushes, wax colour pencils, charcoal, pastel, chalk and other kinds of erasers, markers, styluses and much more will be used. National Drawing Day tells you that everything inside you is valuable and deserving to be shared with the world. The day is also there to bring much-needed appreciation and awareness to artists and illustrators.
“I was always most interested in drawing – most of my childhood drawings are black-and-white line work. And when I kind of abandoned comics, through college and art school, I was doing a lot of painting. But once I started doing comics again, everything else just fell by the wayside.” – Jeffrey Brown
History of National Drawing Day
Drawingday.org is the founder of National Drawing Day. National Drawing Day will remind you of the time when we were too tied up in the amazing and beautiful things, which came out of your imagination. Drawing is one of the important forms of expression within the visual arts. It is concerned with the marking of lines, and areas of tone onto any material where the accurate representation of the visual world is expressed upon a plan surface. Traditional drawings were monochrome, while modern coloured-pencil drawings may cross a boundary between drawing and painting. There is a difference between drawing and painting in western terminology even though the similar media often are employed in both tasks. Drawing may also do with a liquid medium which will be applied with pens or brushes.
