Have you seen the book "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" -Betty Edwards author? It contains exercises to "enhance creativity and artistic confidence" :). One is called Inverted orientation, where you draw a picture that you have placed upside down. You "copy" the picture as you see it upside down , your drawing will be upside down , begiininning at the top, draw each line, moving line to adjoining line, don't trip...try not to think about what shapes are forming in your head. When you're finished , then flip it right side up , you'll probably do better than you expected, because you involved both sides of your brain! Get the book! Bye!
don't stress about art being perfect... perfection is boring :) just scribble, splatter paint, do whatever you want to and you'll find it liberating from worry.. all art is beautiful, whether you spend hours tweaking each line or seconds scribbling :)
Think of yourself as some great artist like Picasso or Van Gogh and how they did their art. Don't struggle to be perfect; just find a place where you will be happy to sit and start doing your thing. If a stroke doesn't come out as you wanted it to, don't fret over it-move to the next and see how that goes. See www.wikihow.com/Motivate-Yourself for more tips.
