This includes learning how to draw still lifes, landscapes, realistic pieces, abstract pieces, gesture drawings, etc. After you have become familiar with the different art categories, create challenge yourself with different prompts. This will test your ability to use what you learned and draw a variety of subject matters. In addition to creating art pieces, constantly sketch in a sketchbook. Do this everywhere you go.
