Self-portraits by Malvina James, Drawing Academy student
Artworks by Oyeleye Olalekan, Drawing Academy graduate Before I enrolled in the Drawing Academy I already drew portraits well; however, my drawing skills got even better. My shading now is far more precise. I really enjoy learning new things about drawing that alone is so satisfying. I also learned about the silver point technique. This course is one of the best drawing courses out there and I would recommend it to any serious upcoming artist because I have had a chance to talk to some artists in universities and they don’t know much about why they do what they do. I will benefit greatly from this in my business. Drawing before the course Drawing after the course
Artwork by Franci, Drawing Academy student When I started with art many years ago I did a drawing of a man that looks similar to the Sean Connery drawing I just did. I wanted to do this specific drawing to test my drawing skills and doing a known person does not leave space for errors. I loved doing this project based on what I have learned at Drawing Academy.

Artworks and story by Nicolae Gherasim, Drawing Academy graduate Well, before starting the Drawing Academy course I was barely able to draw a simple street map for a friend to find an address. After just a few lessons I find myself confident that I can approach certain subjects for my drawings. It was like something new was woken up inside me, something which was there, just sleeping … I’m an avid black and white photographer and sometimes I desperately wanted to create a certain picture I have in mind, a picture that a camera and Photoshop could not create. That is why I decided to learn drawing. Beside all of these I surprisingly discovered a certain peace of mind which is coming every time I am starting to observe and draw.

Thank you Vladimir and Natalie for this excellent Drawing Academy.
I had learned a great deal about classical drawing, my art skills and drawing techniques are growing every day.
This is my self portrait, I’ve done it in H2 pencil…
Feedback from Christy Olsen
Before I enrolled, I was at an intermediate level. I took the course to expand on linear perspective and figure drawing. After completing the course, I have a better understanding of linear perspective and have practiced many of the exercises. My drawing has improved as a result and so has my painting.
This course helped me clarify some key concepts after watching the demonstrations and definitely pointed out the professional way to do things. This is important to me because I am studio art teacher…

This is the portrait of a young Vietnamese girl. I made this portrait after a post card from a photo. It was a long and difficult painting for me, because I am just an amateur. I know that it is not perfect but I am proud of it…
Artwork by Vicky
I just wanted to draw it when I saw her eyes. It’s attractive.
