Artwork by Ignacio
I’m Ignacio and I am a research student in history and visual arts. I love painting and drawing but more than anything I enjoy learning and working with people.

Artwork by Emmanuel
Hello to you all art lovers,
My name is Emmanuel, I live in France, and I love to draw since I am a child.
I love the XVIII century French Masters for at least two reasons. First they have the technical heritage of the western renaissance, and they invented a new artistic style which is called “Roccoco” it means “Rocaille” in French…
Artwork by Karen
I love to paint but drawing was always my passion as a child. As the years passed so many things in life demanded my time , work , kids & just the day to day business of life. I would love to rekindle my love of the simple joy of drawing. There is nothing as lovely and elegant as a beautifully drawn pencil or pen & ink. Plus it is the foundation of every great painting…
Artwork by Claudia Luethi alias Abdelghafar
I am a Swiss artist who has began to create an international art career. I draw and paint in a realistic style but with my own style not hyper-realistic. I try to give the paintings and drawings live and soul. so when you pass for example drawings and paintings of myself with an animal you think “has it moved?”
In the drawing you see I was drawing two horses of a friend of mine who gave me here high professional camera to take pictures from me paintings to be able to make also prints of it.
I was so happy that I wanted to give here something really personal back so I made this drawing of here horses…
Artwork by Carol GRACE de SOFIA
I have always drawn or painted off and on throughout my life. I am self-instructed, from books, observing works of art, watching tutorials in the internet, asking questions here and there.
Almost 60 years later, the same “bubbling” remains inside my belly!
And fortunate enough, I found the DRAWING ACADEMY in the web! I am absolutely delighted about the quality of its presentations, both in videos and texts…
Artwork by Ronnie Rayner Larter
I have always been interested in art since the late 1960’s and have studied as a self-taught artist. However, when I was 37 years old I embarked on a 2-year graphic design and illustration course at art college. I have also taken fine art studies part-time but found them disappointing as they never taught students ‘how to draw’, which was a huge drawback. Eventually, I taught myself by studying the techniques of the old masters. I consider myself to be a reasonably good artist, but feel certain the Drawing Academy could help me progress to the level of a master artist…
Drawing by Gustavo Mella
Hola! I’m not an artist neither an art student but I love to draw, I feel in my heart that the Drawing Academy is the place to be, just the concept of “to draw what you know…” has opened my mind, I have learned a lot just watching the demos, now I have the desire and the hope to go further…
I am a Mexican girl, in her 20s,
I’ve always loved everything that has to do with arts, but for personal and family reasons, besides the lack of schools in my country, I never had the opportunity and the support to study art as it should, so I had to find the way to study on my own with books, videos, internet and lots of practice, but it’s never enough,
I never found any course that offered all the things that web art academy does and here I am :) …
