If you have the desire to draw, this may be the perfect place to start. Keeping an artist journal can be a fun and relaxing way for novices and experienced artists to record the world. Using different mediums, draw things you see (sleeping pets, travel scenes, trees and plants, people, food, architecture, etc.). All you need is a pencil and paper. Basic drawing exercises will get past the fear of the white paper.
