3 WAYS TO BE GOOD AT ART (WITH PICTURES)
Art is part craft, part creativity, and part business. To become a better artist, you need to both connect yourself to experts who can teach you advanced techniques, develop an original style, and figure out how to make the money necessary to support your art, if you want to become a professional artist. If you just want to be good at art in school, particularly primary school, there's less need to think business and advanced techniques. Once you get started, hopefully your art will become progressively better as your talents earn you the resources that will allow you to improve yourself further.
