Temple al Huevo

Artwork by Juan Francisco Martinez Bolaños

Hola les escribo en español por que no se hablar el ingles, realmente deseo ganar este curso gratuito ya que en mi pais es muy dificil encontrar una enseñanza tan avanzada como la que ustedes ofrecen no solo es la situacion economica si no, tambien la educacion en el pais no esta acoplada para crear artistas de gran calidad, vivo en El Salvador, soy estudiante de artes plasticas en la universidad de El Salvador, mi sueño mas grande es pintar como los grandes maestros y poco a poco he ido avanzando lo que no aprendo en la universidad poco a poco lo he ido aprendiendo viendo sus videos en Youtube, aunque han sido cortos y solo los he visto por que no hablo el idioma ingles me han sido mas que suficientes para poder aprender nuevas cosas realmente tienen las mejores guias para estos tiempos y con su ayuda fomare como un completo profesional se que posiblemente mi obra no participe por ser una copìa del maestro Bouguereau pero creo que copiando se afilan las tecnicas muchas gracias por recibir mi correo de antemano muchas gracias…

Family Love

Family Love

Artwork by Lois van Bart Emmerich

I’m a 56 year old South African female. I never had the chance or opportunity to study art. Before I could read or write, I had a pencil and paper with me wherever I went and would sit and draw. When I went to school, I was drawing portraits of my school friends rather than doing my schoolwork!! I don’t have any particular style of drawing. I basically just start drawing what’s in my mind or what I see. I always wanted to paint but just didn’t know where to start. Finally, in 2009, I built up enough courage with some assistance from Norbert Schling, one of the top South African artists. I purchased some oils and canvass and found my passion in life! I would love to be taught the correct drawing and painting techniques in order to make it possible for me to achieve what I know I am capable of doing once I have the know how…

Desperate help needed

Desperate help needed

Drawing by Sebastiaan Theart

I am a self taught artist at the age of 26. I have never had the chance to study art. After school, uninformed that art academies exited outside South Africa, I studied graphic designing but did not complete it due to lack of interest.

Growing up in a strict business family, I immediately turned into a entrepreneur to support my wife and child. I started using the internet more and found that there are academies that can actually teach the classical style, which I so called wanted since I could pick up a pencil. So now at the age of 26, it took me 3 years to actually make dramatic move of having a normal life of a business man to an poor artist. It was a risk…

Sparkling Santiago

Artwork by Carol GRACE

First of all, thank you so much for your inspiring sharing through your free-video lessons and tutorials!! They are absolutely EXCELLENT! and have given me fantastic and clear tips and hints which have enriched my self-instruction tremendously. I can’t imagine how much more one could profit from a complete course and feedback…

I live in PATAGONIA-ARGENTINA, and have just retired (and with the minimum amount). I have drawn and painted off and on throughout the years, during the in-between of a mother’s hectic life. Being a school teacher has never being very rewarding financially, so part of my artistic adventure has been indulging in improvised alchemy discovering economical painting mixes with everyday materials from the house, construction, or collecting beads and fruits for tints or using even coal direct from the fire pit…

Journey to perfection

Journey to perfection

Artwork by Heather Rigby

My name is Heather Rigby, and I am an artist. I am a 20 years old, and live in the United States. I am on a journey of learning. Ever since I was young, I have had a passion for art. Not only for drawing, but for painting, sculpting, woodworking, and even Art History.

Art is my life, and I long to learn as much as I can about it. I have never had any professional training. I have learned only by observing other artists around me. By viewing fine works of art, and by studying techniques used by successful artists. Even though I have learned much on my journey, I want to learn more. Not only would I be very happy to win free lessons, but I would also be very grateful. It would help me take another step towards becoming the type of artist that I truly want to be. As a very wise man (and my favorite artist) once said, Learning never exhausts the mind. (Leonardo da Vinci) I love to learn, and I long to learn more…
