Drawing is a great way to relax and practice our creative skills.
However, sometimes we can simply run out of drawing ideas.
Here is a list of various drawing instructions to help you get back to drawing and inspire you to draw a few random things that you would not have thought of drawing before.
Drawing from a random word is a great way to exercise my own creativity.
I also like to combine random words or things into one drawing to create something a little different. Feel free to do this if you want, whether it’s another word from a prompt or just a random one that pops into your head.
I hope these instructions will help you expand your drawing ideas!
We tried to include different requests, from the simplest to the most creatively unique, which can be more challenging.
I hope you find one that works for what you feel like 🙂
We have also included a printable version (pdf) of these lists at the bottom of the blog post. I hope this helps you!
