Hungry for art knowledge!

Hungry for art knowledge!

Artwork by Garrick Marchena

I’ve been drawing since a very small age. Ever since I can remember.

I believe it was my mother, a very talented seamstress, who inspired me to draw. i remember being so small barely looking over the table and watching her as she was sketching out the models wearing the wedding dresses she designed. While all the kids in my neighborhood were outside playing I was drawing in my sketchbook. This the only place I could feel safe and confident.

At first I did a lot of fantasy drawings making up stories. Then I started drawing my favorite cartoon characters Batman and Superman. At the age of 14 I took a chance and drew my uncle and cousin while they sat in front of me. Somehow I had enough courage and I was certain I could do a good job…

Wanting to leave a trace in the art world

Wanting to leave a trace in the art world

Artwork by José Raigosa

Hi there,

Finally, I found your site, a place where I could learn the method from the Old Masters! The concept from copying from the masters is not new to me, but it seems that your course is well organized. Otherwise I feel like it will take more time for me to learn to draw and to paint well (the way it should be)…

Why I need to take this course

Why I need to take this course

Artwork by Venetia Cox

I’ve been drawing since I can remember, I’ve always been inclined towards creative hobbies especially music and art.

I’m 16 and homeschooling and about to start hairdressing at Tafe next year.

I’ve been doing so much drawing practice, I feel like I’ve improved so much since I started drawing everyday. I think I’m a real fast learner when it comes to these things…

The Grand Style

The Grand Style

Artwork by Slater Smith

Hello,

I’m a 16 year old in high school who wants to become a Master in the art of painting and I believe that learning how to draw first is the best way of getting there and that the Drawing Academy can help me get accomplish my goal. It wasn’t until earlier this year that I had grown a love for art. It probably was not until June that I seriously wanted to become a fine artist. My path so far has been kind of bumpy.

Before drawing, I am usually overcome by this sense of fear that what I produce won’t be to my liking. This leads to me going for days without picking up the pencil for anything but school work. Ignoring practice is not good for my hand and is my main weakness at the moment. My skills progress slowly because of that. So I usually end up reading art books instead of drawing, as if looking for something to motivate me…

Breaking the Ties that Blind

Breaking the Ties that Blind

Drawing by Kate Evans

Hello!

I’m Kate Evans a freelance and emerging fine artist based in Wales. I have been drawing and painting since i was the age of three and since then I have venturing into the dark woods of the subconscious. I could be possibly described as a surrealist but i guess without pigeon holing myself I can say that I favourably describe in a visual sense the dimension of quirky distorted realities.

More often than not I have described colourful, sometimes comical narratives within my practice, however the project that I wish to present to you was totally outside anything that I had created before…
