I love drawing - it's so much fun! You can draw anything you like on a piece of paper. If you love nature, you can draw butterflies, trees and birds.

If you like design, you can draw pretty clothes, and imagine that you're wearing them.

If you see something beautiful and would like to share it with your mum and dad, make a drawing and give it to them.

If you are happy, or sad, you can express your emotions in a drawing.

You can create your dream world on paper. Give it a try.


Thanks for your letter, Hoi-wan. Drawing is a great way to express yourself. Some people get put off because their first attempts are poor. But I believe everyone can be good at drawing, it's just a matter of finding a style that suits you.

For my birthday, I had an artjam party. All the guests were given a large canvas and lots of paint and brushes. Once everyone relaxed and became less self-conscious, they started filling their canvasses with colourful pictures and designs. Even the people who said they were totally uncreative made great, bold works.

We publish students' artwork - paintings, drawings and photographs - on our poetry page every Wednesday. If you've got an artwork you'd like to submit, sent it to
