My Testimony and Thanks to the Drawing Academy

My Testimony and Thanks to the Drawing Academy

Feedback from James McCreary, Drawing Academy student

I signed up for the Drawing Academy about 2 weeks ago I guess. I started drawing about 6 months ago and it was about then or a little bit later I ran across the video by Vladimir London – the 12 Most Essential Skills Every Artist Must Have. Then a bit later I watched the 12 Drawing Mistakes to Avoid.

I have to say to Vladimir that his words back then inspired me so much because I could sense his passion and somehow I knew that what He was saying and offering at the Drawing Academy was exactly what I longed for…

Pablo Ochoa CarpinteyroAs promised in the Drawing Academy Survey, we awarded the full Academy Membership to one of our contributors.

Pablo Ochoa

Here is what Pablo says:

My name is Pablo Ochoa, I am from Puebla, Mexico.

Since I was a child the drawing came first, I loved to draw in my notebooks. As I grew, critiques of my art made me feel like if I wasn’t good at it. So I quit drawing, and began practicing music.

After 8 years of abstinence of making drawings, I really wanted to draw again. One of my teachers in the class of Musical appreciation said: “When you study art, music, painting, dance, acting, you must not get married to the art you are doing, you must enroll in other arts because in that way, you can learn so many new things to complement your studies and become a better artist.” …

It is never “too late”…

It is never “too late”…

Hi,

We recently received the following message in the Drawing Academy Survey from Omar.

Unfortunately, Omar didn’t provide his contact details; since we have no means to write him back directly, I’m posting this article in the hope that he will see the reply.

Omar’s message:

“I am 78 year young. I have painted and drawn most of my life. And I think that I am pretty good, for being self-taught. I am married for 55 yrs., no children, retired, living on a fixed income.

I was just reading about a painter that recently died. His bio said that from early in his life, he knew that he wanted to be a painter.

I just wish that that could be said about me. I have done everything to make a living except what I wanted to do. Shame, isn’t it? Thanks.”
