Looking for a craft project that can be done anywhere without a lot of expensive tools or equipment? Consider using pencils, charcoal or even crayons to draw the things you see around you, wherever you happen to be. You don't need to be a Picasso to enjoy this simple craft. All you need is a willingness to give it a try and some simple supplies, such as a sketchbook or drawing paper.

Drawing and sketching are the perfect crafts for every age group. Kids can improve motor skills and color recognition while more advanced artists can work on perspective, lighting, texture and dimension. One of the best things about drawing, besides its low cost and versatility, is that there's always something new to learn. You'll continue to master your craft over the years, and your interest in subject matter may change with age. To get started with drawing, pick a subject you like, and give it a try. If you find you're having trouble, consider taking a basic drawing class at a local community college or art center.
