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 :) …
Painting by Serap Arslankoc
This painting comes from my soul. I always painted as far as I remember myself. :) It was forbidden in my childhood, to not make dirty. This is still hurting and I am trying to get over.
Painting is meaningful to me and I am meaningful for painting. It is light of me…
Artwork by T. Stonefield
As a Revolutionary War reenactor, I often take on the persona of an 18th Century itinerant artist, traveling from one historic house to the next. After painting each of the Mallaliu children, I decided to paint their father, Raoul dressed as an 1812 Rifleman. Not only does the painting detail the rifleman uniform and its accoutrements, but it reflects the model’s stance and personality set in one of the original battle sites…
Painting by Metin Sharifov
In Azerbaijan ram fights were a part of traditions from ancient times. Rams carried a symbolic meaning, that’s why graves of soldiers and commanders were decorated with sculptures of rams.
This painting represents a ram fight in front of the ancient double gate of Old City (Baku).
My goal is to promote the art of Azerbaijan and improve my experiences…
Portrait by Anita Nash
I really enjoy drawing and painting. I did an art and design course and obtained a fetac level 6. I would love to delve deeper into the technicalities behind drawing, such as perspective and proportion. My dream would be to be sell drawings and paintings for a living. I am especially interested in portraits, our faces reveal so much of who we are. I would really love to receive a place in the drawing academy, so that i can develop my drawings skills further…

Artwork from Rev. Dr. Priscilla Dross C. Marcial, M.Div., USA Ambassador FABI, LFIBC
I find drawing an exceptional form and expression of the discipline of “art”; and consider “Art” to be a very spiritual expression of possibilities via the utilization of all of our talents and skills to bring to life the miracle of what we see, experience, and want to share with others who are equally yolked and like minded. It is the miracle of true and actual “happenings”! I am by far an amateur and a work in progress by comparison…
