Drawing by Emma Helvin

My way to better skills

Hey, My name is Emma Sofie. I am living in Norway together with my parents and 3 siblings. I have always liked drawing and colouring. I started for real to colouring in secondary school, and started mostly draw my own picture when I started at High School. I am soon starting my second year at highschool. I am in an education program for Art, design and architecture, and I want to work as an architect in the end. Therefore is art a big part of my everyday. I draw everyday and post my art on my instagram profile A_drawer_in_purple a few times a week. Lately, I’ve used a lot of hatching with dots in my pictures.

I feel that taking the Drawing Academy course I can excellerate my learning so it’s not piece meal and I’m trying to tie it all together in a disjointed fashion for with the course there will be no guesswork in putting it all together.

Galileo

I am a self-learning artist and also an engineer, I am very much passionate about art and its history and I do all my art soulfully.

The biggest challenge in art is composing what I imagine, so I want to learn renaissance technique, anatomy, and the perspectives.

SURVIVING A FAMOUS NAME

My name was tacked on before Art Carney and that young actor made most strangers make what they think is a witty remark. For more than 20 years my name appeared over articles in newspapers in New Jersey and New York City, Now my name is on my watercolors, an effort I returned to after writing. Actually I began drawing and painting as a grammar-school kid, and continued as a cartoonist in high school and college papers. I began as a cartoonist at my first daily newspaper and switched to writing-editing when I found there was more money there.

Starting over is scary!

My name is Sharif Makhale and I’m a NYC based artist. I gave up a 25 year career as a martial arts instructor to pursue my dream of being an artist. Prior to that I hadn’t created any art for almost 15 years. After having a personal crisis.

It was art that saved my life and since I’ve been eternally grateful. Since returning to art, people took notice through social media and I’ve been blessed to be a part of some amazing group art shows here in NY and a solo show in Europe in 2014.

Drawing and painting is a new language for me

I’m an art student who recently picked up drawing, and found I love it immensely. I’ve recently been looking for a way to bring some structure and education into my drawing, especially because I have also been recently entertaining the idea of doing art (semi) professionally, too.

The Drawing Academy site really showed me (the articles about art & art education, especially!) that timeless is always the hot new thing.

Sunflower

For as long as I remember, I loved to draw. In high school, I received an award for my artwork from a great Indian classical dancer and film star, Waheeda Rehman. After high school, I wished to join Sir J. J. School of Arts, Bombay, but could not pursue my love of art as I had to struggle for my livelihood by taking some other job, which continued till my retirement. After my retirement, I attended some private classes and started painting. Since then, I felt my life more meaningful and satisfying. Now I paint for my own pleasure and to satisfy my soul. Beauty appeals to me in everything I see. I fall in love with any beautiful subject/object; for, I feel, a thing of beauty is a joy for ever! And I believe, art flows from the heart.
