My New Found Love For Art

I am a disabled veteran. I stopped working in 2004. I started drawing again because I did not want to just sit around doing nothing. I started drawing when I was in the fourth grade.

I am currently working on the last year of school for Doctor of Ministry. It is my hope that once I am finished with school, I want to take some art classes. I plan to finish by September.

Hi, I’m Patricia.

I always loved art but never even tried it until I was almost 40, when I discovered and fell in love with Trompe l’oeil, a particular form of decorative painting. I started taking classes and now, more than 10 years later, I am making it my career.

I paint to bring beauty to empty walls and unused spaces, I believe it uplifts people, and that is my contribution to making the world a better place. However I mostly draw using tracing paper and copying photos. I would love to learn how to draw properly, especially figure drawing, it would improve my art hugely.

The Drawing Academy uses the internet and great art tutors to make art available to the world, it is a wonderful endeavour and I am very grateful for it, I have been receiving their newsletter for years. Please vote for me, help me improve my skills and make the world more beautiful, one painting at a time. Thank you!

Story and Drawing by Souty Adel

The gorgeous queen

I would like to express my enormous interest to get access to the course of How to draw. I suppose it would be a splendid opportunity for me to learn drawing from the beginning. Actually, I am strongly convinced that this valuable would help me in developing my scientific research and academic career.

My name is Souty Adel. I am Egyptian. I have studied conservation of monuments in El Fayoum University, Egypt from 2007 to 2011. The course of my studies included restoration and treatment of different inorganic and organic materials. In 2013, I acted as a restoration specialist at Kom Oshim museum, El Fayoum, Egypt, during this period I have begun my preliminary master study in conservation of artifacts. In the second half of 2013 I have started my academic position as a permanent teaching assistant in Fayoum university for teaching restoration and treatment of oil paintings. It was a big challenge for me to be an oil painting conservator as this field is multidisciplinary. In this respect, it is important to study art and chemistry with respect to the conservation science…

Life Drawing by Manuel Forest

I want to improve my life drawing skills

A while back I took art classes in my home town, but since then life took over and I did drawing on and off without any guidance or direction.

My favorite subject is drawing figures and portraits. Finding a model is not always easy, but when I can, I draw obsessively.

The Drawing Academy course is a great place to learn figure drawing; this is what I want to do. The most important thing for me is to have some professional feedback about my art and get clear advise on what to improve. That is why I want to win this drawing course.

The shy villager girl’s dream

Hello.

My name is Marie Ange and I’m the 2nd born in a family of 5. I was born in a small village in the countryside of mid highlands of Madagascar.

I was a very shy girl,one who didn’t socialize much with other children but spent much of my time drawing and painting. I didn’t join others in play but would draw away to the rice paddies,where I would draw on the mud using my fingers and sticks. At age 5 I had learnt how to make paint from flowers and plants and brushes from chicken and bird feathers. I would use sharp sticks to draw birds, animals, people and houses on sisal leaves and proudly display my artwork for all to see.

Contemporary Master

Hello there, I’m Sue, and I am currently a college student studying art.

To me, art is a careful cooperation of acquired skill and personal expression. Throughout my life, I’ve always felt a strong need to create artwork, both for the sheer fun of it, but also because I wanted my ability to improve. It wasn’t until college that I realized and ultimately decided that I should strive to make a career of my passion.

I’ve come to learn about many types and styles of art, but above all I admire the beautiful, classical artwork of the old masters. Unfortunately, I’ve found that as I study art in my classes, I don’t have the opportunity to improve my skills in the way I want. Other types of art like abstract, cartoons and stylized illustrations are very popular right now, and it seems like classical fine art is not getting the attention it very well deserves. For this reason, I am interested in the Drawing Academy.
