Following the masters
Hello my name is Jean. I’m from Ecuador and I’ve been drawing since I was 7 years old, but I never took art seriously, just as a hobby and not like a way of living until I was in college and fell in love with it when I visited a friend’s gallery, this impacted me and it has become a great part in my life, from doing it for commission or for fun or a competition, to search everything about the history of art.
Hi, I am Prashanth Paladugu from India. Professionally am a Journalist, and self tough artist. In my life Art is very important like soul. My passion is art.
Never too old!
I am currently enjoying retirement with time to take on new interests. I was introduced to art as most children are. Drawing, finger-painting, paint by number, etc. I was one of those kids that just always had to be creating something. Usually animals.
I was lucky that the Toledo Art Museum offered a drawing course in perspective.
My Love in black and white
My name is Siv, it is a Nordic goddess name. My father thought it would give me luck in my life. And it did! I live in Sweden born in Finland!
My father was an artist known only in the small villages and surrounding places I grow up in. In my heart he is a great artist!
I have four children, nine grandchildren, so I am truly a lucky women!
Rajendra Parekh Artist
I am a self-taught Artist from India. Art is my passion since childhood.
To improve my art skills, I need a mentor or a very good art course to master oil painting skills.
I think that Drawing Academy is a very good place to learn art.
I want to see people smiling more often
If I could just shade it a little darker…” I press the pencil point down on the lips of the face I’m drawing. The already worn paper gave through, allowing the pencil to rip past the multi-universe that paper represented for that short moment.
In other words: “I ruined it again” I grumble to myself and glance at the stack of paper I’ve collected of failed attempts at drawing a face. I frown and shove them off the table. I grab a new stack and start all over again, “This time for sure!”
Random paintings of the masters
My name is Abdullah Alfalahi (Eddie) from United Arab Emirates. I’m very passionate about arts since childhood. Given where I was born, art was never in the center of attention, but I kept drawing, then was distracted eventually by work and family.
I consider art as everything in my life, art of all kinds but I mostly admire that sustainable art, and art that has a story to tell about the artist or the surrounding of that period. I decided to pursue it though researches and visiting galleries across the world. The only professional learning I have received so far is online from Web Arts Academy by Natalie Richy. I was able to learn the secrets of oil paining and drawing that I would not have learnt by experience.
Mother and Child
I learned that I could draw and learn to draw in my old age. Drawing is a way to leave the story of my life for future generations.
I want to learn how to draw from my memory and imagination. I tell my story in art.
Drawing Academy would be a great learning resource to me. Because of many issues in my older life, I am unable to get back into normal society. Art can provide this for me. Telling my story in art will be one of the crowing event my life before my sunsets.
I have only been drawing and painting for two years as I have taught myself. It is something I feel passionately about and would love to be able to learn from the professionals.
I try draw things that will challenge me and grow as an artist and would love to learn about drawing people with more detail.
I would love to win the Drawing Academy course so I can fulfill my dream of becoming a great artist.
Aiming for Surrealism
I’m Kurt Runge, 27, from South Africa. I started drawing from a very early age and have always loved it.
I often find my self captivated by great art and aiming to create pieces that do the same for myself and others. It was only until I came across the sample anatomy videos from Drawing Academy did I realize that this was the perfect place to learn the foundations for illustrating accurately from life and imagination.
