Story by Knoll Nicolas

Human

I am a 24 yo French guy who’s currently living in the South of France.

Arts have a unique place in my life, it is helping me to think over, to contemplate, to understand the world’s around me, our nature. It is giving me intellectual satisfaction too cause of a constant learning.

I am working with one wish, putting enough money aside to make A Florence Fine Arts School, I trust that it would be a true help in my development.

Artwork by Ivan Frauci

All I want is to draw

Hi, My name is Ivan and I draw whenever I have free time.

My parents are very supportive and they pay for my art education. My friends say I’m good at drawing, but I feel my skills lack anatomy and proportions of a human figure, so I mostly draw still life and very few portraits.

I found the Drawing Academy course and immediately understood that this is what I want – a good all-round drawing course where I can learn how to draw figures and portraits.

Queen of the Dawn

I was drawn back into art when I was unable to work with M.E. Art became my only voice when I was unable to do anything else. It became my lifeline.

My name is Anna and I am a wife to a wonderful husband and mother to a lovely but often infuriating darling daughter.

Art is my place that is for me. I want to take my art to the next level and make more accomplished work. It is my dream that when my daughter goes to school next year that I will be able to be a “proper artist” and make works that sell.

To Be A Charcoal Pencil in the Hand of God

My name is Meg and I am a 37 year old mother of 5. I have a degree in visual art, with a concentration in photography.

I loved my figure drawing classes in college way back when and developed a love for drawing portraits. I am a stay at home mom and with 5 kids my art was put on the back burner for over 13 years. My children are finally getting independent enough for me to start making art again. I can draw anything from a photograph but I can no longer draw whatever comes to mind without something to look at.

Born to Create!

My life has come around full circle from childhood, back to an overwhelming passion for art and the need to create. Grade school art class introduced me to drawing when our assignment was to draw our dream house. From there, I learned from books and used reference photos. I even did some fashion drawings in the 6th grade! In college, I studied interior design where drafting, drawing and rendering were my favorite classes. Later, I studied graphic design and art history. I have changed careers several times, and even though they were in creative fields, my passions were not fulfilled as it is in drawing, painting and sculpture.

Hi everyone!

My name is Natalia. As I can remembered myself art always was a part of my everyday life. At first, there were many colored books, then my own drawings, then some art classes at school and finally many books about fine art. Nevertheless, all this was undirected and without any guidance.

Artwork by Anita

I am in love with drawing and painting

Hello,

My name is Anita, I live in Germany and I love old masters works. I started to paint late at the age at 17 and even later, theoretically, to deal with art as well and finally I discovered my admiration for the old masters.

I painted a lot in allaprima and so,painting in many layers was a challenge to my patience because I had to take a break for two weaks after every layer.

Drawing by Khaled Alreqeb

I love drawing, but I did not find an opportunity to learn art at a drawing school.

I spent a lot of time learning drawing by reading books about art. I also try to learn how the old professional artists created an inspiring and dramatic feeling in portraits.
