It only takes practice. Just be smart and crafty, and you’ll do fine. You don’t have to be a painter or illustrator or sculptor. Just be clever, and you’re good at being good.
Don’t have the money to spend on art supplies? There are lots of options for drawing from. Your family will have art boxes, and you can easily purchase inexpensive art tools from Target, Amazon, or Walmart.
