geisha drawing

This week’s Drawing Challenge is taking a trip to the traditional culture of Japan. Use PicsArt Drawing Tools to draw a gorgeous Japanese Geisha. 

Geisha is a Japanese word for “artist”, but specifically, it refers to female hostesses who wear traditional Japanese make-up and clothing, and perform as dancers, actresses, and musicians. Geisha’s began hundreds of years ago as performers in the entertainment quarters of old Japan. Being a Geisha quickly grew into a sophisticated and rich artform, with many years of schooling and training required to master its intricacies.  Geishas performed all throughout Japan, and in the private homes of elite Samurai families. Today, Geishas remain a popular and proud artistic tradition in modern Japan. 

Use PicsArt Drawing Tools to draw your own interpretation of a Geisha for this week’s Drawing Challenge.
