When I wanted to learn how to draw and initiate the development of my art skills, I found a local junior or community college.
These colleges have continuing education courses, where anyone can take an art, painting, drawing and sculpting class.
It helped greatly in introducing me to art, and the college continuing education courses had various development levels, from beginning to advanced.
Paul recommends the following next steps:
hope this help!
Along with that, here are a few advises that work with all forms of art:
1- Accept that you will be bad at first! You are not meant to be good when you first start something, and that's totally okay - it takes time, energy and focus to build skills to be good and talented.
2- Be consistent - Passion is great, but it's nothing without consistency to be better every single day
3- Research what other artists are doing, and learn what you can from them.
4- Know the theory - study the rules, in order to perfect the exceptions.
In the study of Classical Art, we are taught to draw every single day, from life. Draw everything from shoes to trees and flowers, pets, portraits of people, quick action poses of people and animals, landscapes...anything at all that you're interested in drawing. Your skills will improve as you go, and you will be able to track your progress, and learn more from referring to your sketchbook. This is absolutely the best and most important thing you can do, to get started, and to continue throughout your life. Best wishes on your journey!
