Here’s what Drawing Academy students say:

Great Value for Money

The Drawing Academy will save you time and money.

The value of the course is $4,455 (45 lessons at $99 each). However, you can get it for an incredible low fee of only $257 for the complete course. This is equivalent to the cost of one cup of coffee per day!

Compare this to an average art college tuition, which can be up to $100,000 for 4 years, and comes with no guarantee that you’ll graduate with good drawing skills.

In the Drawing Academy, you will get by far the best value for your money!
