Art is my life
I like drawing very much, but it seems I don’t have time; in fact, it’s not true. I do not have a method to use my time. I need a school!
Time after time, I discover that all I want to do is art, and drawing is the basis to improve my works, to communicate the sense of discovery I had every time. I can easily communicate through drawings, without words.
Self Esteem from your artworks
Hello, I am Antoinette Apondi from Nairobi, Kenya. I am 23 years of age and I am an artist.
Art is very important in my life because it is what I have ever known since I was a child. I can say that art contributes majorly to my self esteem because once I finish a drawing or painting I feel really good about myself. But recently, despite finishing my pieces I do not really feel as good as I used to because I have realized that I depend too much on photo references and I cannot come up with an artwork from memory and even if it was from life, I will really struggle with the proportions and process of developing it.
From the videos on YouTube I know that Drawing Academy could help me out with this problem, because I am starting to feel like I am not a real artist if I continue drawing from photos!
Dimiourgikó ómorfo kósmo tis téchnis (creative beautiful world of art)
I am a self taught artist. I have been drawing since I was a little girl, and have always loved art. I started off drawing the horses on my grandparents farm from memory, and then as I got older i started drawing from photos.
I use other art works from you-tube and google to improve my techniques and styles of drawing.
In the name of love
Being only sixteen is a true challenge for most teenage artist, as it is for me sometimes too. I started drawing when I was only seven, I was young of course but the passion for art lived within me since then. I had stopped drawing for a long time until last summer.
Art for me is one of the most important parts of my daily routine and life. Realism though is a style I am taking an interest in recently therefore it appears a little more challenging for now.
In art I would like to learn more about Impressionism and Realism, especially all about Reinassance art and the Old Masters, that’s the reason I was interested in the Drawing Academy in first place.
Hello I am soon to be 52. I care for my 90 year old mother and school my seven year old daughter both at home. I had her at age 43. I always say be careful what you ask for because you just might get it. Now I have learn to be specific when I ask.
I have always love to doodle. Now I use it to clear my head and focus in on the big picture. I love creating my own designs and seeing them come to life on paper.
Sketch of the modern Thinker
My name is Tetiana and I am from Kharkiv, Ukraine.
I don’t have academic drawing education and actually I don’t have any art education at all, but I like drawing and painting very much escpecially watercolor paintings and sketches. I want to learn how to do this professionally.
I think that Drawing Academy is a great opportunity for me, because I don’t have time and possibility to attend drawing courses. So the online education is the best variant for me. And I think that Drawing Academy is a very good user friendly educational online resource with professional tutors.
I have a BS degree in music Education and bass trombone performance from Jacksonville State University and studied Art at the University of Alabama where I was awarded a full tuition scholarship my first semester I had solo shows in the Gadsden Museum of Fine At and The Tuscaloosa Council of Fine Art gallery. I am a recovering stroke victim. I had a massive stroke that took away my entire left side I was a professional bass trombone player which ended.
I was also doing art as much as I could but as a result of my stroke I lost the ability to think on a higher level therefore I was at a loss about how to start. My son and wife kept trying to get me to paint and one day I started and a whole new world came back to me, I suddenly remembered color theory and even the names of the brushes.
I am a 16 year old girl, who has a great interest in art. I am a first girl of my village who is allowed to study in school.
I am interested in many artistic works such as writing, drawing, painting, sketching and poetry.
This year, I am going to publish my poetry books. I want to learn about art, specially about abstract art and painting.
The wife and I are retired and We both paint. We have a small studio just out of Dushore, PA.
I feel that every piece of art is a challenge weather it is a wildlife, still life, portrait, or even a landscape.
I would like have the support and advice to gain the confidence in myself and in the art I do.
From what I see the Drawing Academy might be the source for me.
