Dear Drawing Academy Instructor and Student colleagues:
I have been a student of the Drawing Academy and the Web Art Academy for some years already and more recently I signed up for Old Masters Academy.
I value a lot the programs offered for a very simple reason: I can learn in my own time and at a pace that I can control, and I appreciate having this a kind of flexibility.

Here is a oil portrait of my friend who is a lawyer.
Self Portrait in soft pastels
Here is a self portrait in soft pastels on brown colored pastel sheet. For this work I have used reference photo. Actually I want to do self portrait with the help of mirrors instead of using photo reference.

I have been drawing for many years, but all those years before enrolling in the Drawing Academy I did not know a human head proportions and anatomy and had been using grid to copy portraits. I also didn’t know how to draw in perspective.
I have learnt a lot in the Drawing Academy course. Now I can draw what I see or imagine (even though it’s not perfect) because I know the rules of constructive drawing, understand perspective and proportions and know the steps of portrait drawing.
I can proudly say that my drawing skills improved so much thanks to this drawing course.
I would recommend Drawing Academy to everyone who would like to learn professional drawing techniques and push drawing skill on a higher level.
Thank you Drawing Academy!
I absolutely LOVE being a member of the Drawing Academy. I hesitated for nearly a year to join and am so thrilled that I finally made the commitment. Being able to take my time through the classes lets me savor and “master” the lessons. Instead of rushing through to meet some kind of imaginary deadline, I watch the videos and practice the technique. Oftentimes, as with perspective drawing, I go back and re-watch the video to fully grasp the technique.
Before starting this wonderful course with the Drawing Academy, I was just a beginner and having lots of lessons and instructions from my art teacher, Ronnie Rayner Larter, who won the Drawing Academy Art Competition two years ago.
Ronnie advised me to enter the same competition. I was determined to win because knowing how to draw well is an ambition, an ambition to have the skills to draw anything, which will help me to enrol on a Fashion Degree course I am now applying for…
