Don’t put years to your life, put life to your days

Don’t put years to your life, put life to your days

Artwork by Juan Felipe Molano Rodriguez

My name is Juan Felipe Molano and I’m a student in Bogota Colombia.

I have always loved to draw but it was the moment when I grabbed a camera and took a trip to a small town and I saw this elder woman who just seemed like she just enjoyed life, she inspired me to go home and draw her. I know it might need some improvements, but it is my first long scale drawing, although I did put the best effort into it. I hope you enjoy it! …

Artist’s pursuit of happiness

Artist’s pursuit of happiness

Artwork by Sandeep Soni

I am a petroleum engineer, working in oil industry in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

My hobbies include paintings, drawings, playing guitar, traveling. I want to make my career in fine art. For this I need to gain more confidence, and leave my current field.

I started painting and drawing since my childhood, but during my engineering job, it was not frequent. I had two exhibitions during my art career. It had been a while (3 years) since I again started painting. Now I am more serious and wants to pursue my art career with all energy and passion…

The Three Graces

The Three Graces

Artwork by Rita Alamanou

I am a mature art student and I attend the local Greek art classes in Corfu. With the help of fellow art students and teachers I have progressed from knowing very little about painting and drawing to a good standard.

It seems that the hidden artist wanted to come out even at this stage in my life. I have always had a strong admiration for beautiful art work and wondered how it could be achieved.

Now I know I can paint beautiful pictures and what pleasure it gives me. I do have a lot of room for improvement so this is why I would like the chance to win the Drawing Academy lessons

Inspired by art

Artwork by Angie

For as long as I can remember I have always had a love for drawing. However I never had the opportunity of any formal training. I have read books and tried different techniques by copying what the masters do.

I never seem to be able to draw from memory but can copy almost anything if given a photo. I came across the Drawing Academy a few weeks ago when I was investigating new skills and thought that I would benefit greatly from this course. Help me to become a better artist and inspire the world!

I think the Drawing Academy is a great place to develop your individual art style of fine art…

To Art!

To Art!

Artwork by Ekene

Hi, my name is Ekene and I am currently an undergraduate at Wits University.

I’m studying Bcom law –a not so very artsy degree! I started drawing from a young age, probably six or seven and have only ever been self taught. I just dabbled y’know? I only started taking art seriously in 2014. I’ve spent a lot of money on art books, art materials and (excitingly!) bought my first easel during the December holidays. I come from a very academic family –so while the end product is appreciated, it’s difficult for my parents to understand why I practice ‘that drawing thing’.

I signed up a year or so ago to the Drawing Academy emails and I really like the structured learning that the course offers, how it covers all the comprehensive bits and bobs that an artist needs to know…

A Patriot and Hero

A Patriot and Hero

Artwork by C.J.

My name is CJ and like many, art stirs my heart and has since I was a child. I’ve been blessed with a gift in art, and try at every chance to bless others through it. Over the years, my art has brought many people excitement and joy through gifts and portraits. My goal is to spread an appreciation for art, and through it, keep strong the gratitude for those who serve their country.

This graphite drawing was done for a friend, patriot, and hero of mine. His family cherishes this piece and it was one of my greatest joys to see it proudly hanging on their home wall. Through the Drawing Academy Course and it’s resources, I want to strive for excellence and use my skills to uplift fine art and the beauty it can bring to this world (and those it)! …
