Can I really draw?

By Marie-lyne Morant

I am a wig dresser, I work in the theatre, it isn’t a full time job but I love it. As I also come from a makeup background I have always loved to draw and paint, but on a canvas? I am not sure I would be able to master that discipline.

I can certainly paint a face as art is my life, I work and breath it, backstage I watch my live canvas singing on stage.

As I watch them perform I think, I would like to draw and then paint this artist singing and performing, I would love to capture that amazing moment when they are on top of the world doing what they love, I would capture it on a large canvas and they would be so beautiful.

Then there is the reality, where to start, how to start and do I have the skills, can I learn those skills?

Life in Food

Hi, I am Jyotsana Sharma and I am an Artist & Graphic Designer. As I Spend my last 5 yrs for art and communicates through my artworks to the society.

Art is time for me and its important like time is important for me in life.

Time: With shrinking deadlines to get an art piece commissioned is the biggest challenge. Art is a creative process which takes time. With so many art tools available, one can get any amount of artwork done in no time. This is frustrating for the real artists because their market is eaten away in this process.

Freedom to Dance

I have always been interested in Art. As a 19 ur old and pregnant I used charcoal from the fireplace to draw with. I am now retired and am trying to learn to paint in oils and draw portraits. Learn to draw has been a main factor in learning portrait perspectives. I decided to draw this rabbit and push myself to learn to.

Paint fur and shiny ballet slippers. I like to push myself to do things I have never done before and I like to try difficult things.

I would dearly love to win the Drawing Academy course so that I could learn more about portraits and perspectives.

Ndu ARTz I am a young man of 40yrs from Abia state in Nigeria. Being born with the gift of art I never thought it worthwhile until the year 2014 when I stumbled across a young artist who took art as career and was good at it. He tutored me and now am tutoring others. Since then I have been enjoying myself producing artworks for people at a price, I mean I’m being paid to do what I enjoy. My dream now is to own the biggest and best gallery with training centre in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. My works ranges from mixed media paintings, tread works, sculptures, graphics designs, murals etc. Art is my recreation and my life style, it play a major part in my life in that it helps me to relax.

Draw it perfect

I am a grade 12 learner and I love drawing. Art is all i can do and its my hobby, its actually what I do best. I find it difficult to draw what’s been drawn by someone else. I want to learn to draw much faster and more accurately.

Drawing Academy is the best for me and it has what I need.

Leave no Line behind!

I am a senior citizen who has tried to teach himself art as time allowed in his computer career.

I had a heart attack December 2017 and had to have quadruple bypass surgery so will need a career change as I refuse to retire, perhaps now I can focus 110% on art instead of squeezing it into my life.

I travel as much as I can to study are including Bali, Venice, Rome, Florence, Belgium, England, Germany , Budapest, and Prague, mostly work related so I am always trying to squeeze in Art.

New Reflections On The Old River

By nature, I am a very creative and artistic senior woman who always loved art but never gave it a real chance, before this year. And I hope we all agree that it’s never too late to start anything.

In January, moved by a passion to express myself through colour and form, I chose to embark on a dream project to create a body of artwork in oil paintings, with zero artistic experience. I had a triple advantage: A brilliant 3-month programme on the inner workings of creativity (Creating the Impossible with Michael Neill); time at hand after unfortunately losing my job; and a latent talent I wasn’t even aware I had.

Boy With Blue Egg

I have enjoyed drawing and painting since I was a child. I use to draw a lot but had stop when I had my first child which caused me to turn my attention to supporting my family. I would still paint a portrait from time to time but I wasn’t able to give it the time that I would have liked to give. Since both of my children are on their own raising their families, I have turn my attention again to drawing and painting. I enjoy painting portraits but the skills that I would like to acquire through the Drawing Academy classes in the ability to draw and paint scenes in perspective that tell a story.
