    12. Books and online videos - there's nothing like having someone show you something that you just read about that makes all the difference.

    13. Jeannie Smith Seals: I prefer to see it done by someone else first then proceed to explore the skill myself.

    14. Shawna Seals: I have to be inspired to learn the skill and then try new things with it on my own. And if nothing, challenge myself to grow and learn from it.

    18. I like to read everything I can about a process and then I try it myself! I think proper basics are a must with all mediums -- the creativity comes later.

    19. I like to read about what others do ... books & articles ... study works online of artists I respect, then create a piece of my own incorporating new techniques, or colors, or application.

    20. I like to learn in a class to get the basics and be able to ask questions. From there I like tutorials that teach step by step instructions. When I have done a few pieces I like to go off and start doing my own.

    23. I learn new skills in many ways but my favourite for learning art skills is watching YouTube videos which often have a written step-by-step article on their blog.

    26. I prefer to learn a new skill at my own pace, instead of people telling me what to do, I learn in my own time and discover new things through practicing and not letting things defeat me. The more you do something, the better you get

    27. I love viewing other's work or great photography for inspiration and once properly motivated will research some new aspect of drawing to add to what I already know. Love tutorials that include every step as well right down to the colors used and in what sequence. I am a little addicted to colored pencil magazine at the moment. :)

    30. I prefer to be with the teacher - in person. But, that is usually cost prohibitive for me, so I like a video; when that is not available, then I use Colored Pencil Magazine
