Realization of a dream
I wanted to learn how to draw since the age of seven! Drawing Academy is a great place to learn drawing. I would like to win this course very much. I will be very grateful to all who support me in the realization of a dream that I have brought since childhood!
I have always been a cheerful person loving art and nature. I am a Master Gardener and my yard was filled with beautiful flowers and herbs.
All of us run into a really big trials in our lives at one time or another. Mine was the loss of my son to Brain Cancer. I was not angry at God for a moment, but I lost my joy in life. I begin digging up flowers and plants that had meant so much to me. I was Heavenly minded and couldn’t get my feet back on the ground here on earth. This went on for years, but I kept my feelings to myself and put a smile on my face.
A voice for the soul
To start describing me, I should say that I’m 24 years old, I’m from Costa Rica, and currently I’m majoring at Dentistry with a full scholarship thanks God.
It is ironically hard to write about oneself but if I had to put it into words I would say that since I was a kid I have always been the kind of person who is very serious and passionate about the things I like and that I work very hard to accomplish my goals.
I’m also a very sensitive person, which sometimes can be a both a blessing and a curse, by that I mean it is an amazing and unique way to experience the world around but from time to time it can be overwhelming.
From Tugboat Captain to Artist
I have tried many forms of art over the years but never had the time to REALLY get into and REALLY learn. Ive done photography since I was 16 (now 52), Even done Tattooing! I worked as a Ferry and tugboat Captain, sailed tall ships as crew. Painted many pretty boats and sold them. My kids are grown now and I have so many physical limitations due to injuries that I have been stuck inside a lot. I have no income at all anymore.
I have been oil painting wet on wet for over a year now. But have recently been learning old school techniques and want to learn other mediums as well.
A journey of the artist
I am a 46 year old artist and sculptor. I have experience of nearly 25 years. I have held many art exhibitions, obtained a lot of honorary certificates and obtained a qualification certificate (drawing and decoration).
Art is my whole life so I decided to write you in order to help me to get a scholarship to continue my studies of art and help promote my artworks (Graduate degrees in Art).
My art obsession
The ultimate dream is to do portraits as I feel people are wonderful subjects as every face tells a story.
I would love to win this art course so I could get the help and teaching that I so much desire. I’m sure I have developed bad habits that would drive professional artist mad, but I’m like a sponge and just want to learn as much as I can to improve my art.
Art? I Can…
My name is Zachary Hill and I am from Porterville, CA. I am 37 and have been drawing for about six months, during which time I have been collecting supplies to start oil painting.
Art is an extremely important piece of my life as it replaces what would surely be a sizable Xanax prescription. I started drawing because I got tired of saying “I can’t” when the subject of art came up, and have been told I missed my calling to art due to my age. However, I believe I found it.
Art is My Passion
Art is my passion and now a second career. I fell lighter and fuller as a painter and fibre artist. Continuous learning, personal growth and great personal fulfillment are but a few of the many benefits of practicing my art.
I love the challenge of creating. Painting in true alla prima painting style is my current painting goal.
Art to Recover and Restore
I am a 56-year old wife, mother, grandmother and high school counselor. In the past year, Old yearnings from childhood have been stirring. I used to want to be an illustrator! Somewhere around 10 years old, I discarded my interest in drawing as I viewed it as impractical and not able to provide an income–plus I wasn’t good enough. My perfectionism paralyzed me. It was easier to not try than fail.
My name is Mazen.
I love drawing, it is the way to express myself. I would like to improve my drawing skills, this will help me to create better paintings. I really want to learn everything about professional drawing techniques.
I love the Drawing Academy course – it is a great place to learn how to draw. That is why I want to win this competition and get the drawing course membership.
