To raise funds for the event by generously gifting away their artworks as raffle prizes. Among these remarkable creators are luminaries like Mr. Pol A. Mesina Jr., Mr. Tam Urao, Mr. Rodgie Gapayao, Mr. Mark Joseph Beloria, Ms. Marj Sula-Aquino, Ms. Kaur Jaspreet, Mr. Jun Vicaldo, and Ms. Marge DC Gomez.

How to Draw or Sketch Inanimate Objects Easily?

Freehand sketching is a form of drawing that doesn't rely on technical aids or precise measurements. It allows for a more expressive and creative representation of objects and scenes. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do freehand sketching:

Materials you'll need:

  1. Pencil (preferably an HB or 2B for versatility)
  2. Sketchbook or plain paper
  3. Eraser
  4. Optional: Charcoal or pen for experimenting with different styles

Step-by-step guide:

  1. Observe and choose a subject: Look around your surroundings or find a reference image or object to sketch. Start with simple objects or scenes when you're just beginning.
  2. Warm-up exercises: Before diving into your main sketch, do warm-up exercises to sync your hand and mind. Try drawing circles, straight lines, curves, and squiggles to loosen up your wrist.
  3. Basic shapes and proportions: Start by blocking the basic outlines of your subject. Use simple geometric forms like circles, ovals, rectangles, or triangles to represent different subject elements. Pay attention to the proportions and relationships between these shapes.
  4. Light lines: Begin sketching with light, faint streaks. Avoid pressing too hard on the pencil to make it easier to adjust and refine your sketch later.
  5. Contour lines: Focus on the outlines or contours of your subject. Follow the edges and curves to define the shape. Remember, you're not aiming for perfection, so don't fear imperfections or mistakes.
  6. Details and shading: Add more details to your sketch once you have the basic outline. Observe the shadows and highlights to add depth and dimension to your drawing. Use hatching (parallel lines), cross-hatching (overlapping lines), or stippling (dots) to create different shading effects.
  7. Keep it loose and expressive: Embrace the imperfections and variations in your sketch. Freehand drawing is about capturing the essence and feel of the subject rather than creating a perfect replica.
  8. Practice regularly: Freehand sketching, like any skill, improves with practice. Set aside time each day or week to draw different subjects and experiment with various techniques.
  9. Learn from others: Study the works of other artists and sketchers. Watch tutorials, read books on sketching, and attend workshops to learn new techniques and gather inspiration.
  10. Be patient and have fun: Don't be too hard on yourself if your sketches don't turn out as you imagined. Keep experimenting, exploring, and enjoying the process of freehand sketching.

Remember, the beauty of freehand sketching lies in its spontaneity and individuality. Let your style and creativity shine through, and don't be afraid to make mistakes. Happy sketching!
