Drawing Academy review by Patricia Wilkinson

Drawing Academy provides the details of instruction needed to greatly improve drawing skills

I spent thousands of dollars trying to get an art education but I was not taught even the most elementary skills. I have been drawing for more than 50 years and developed most of my drawing skills on my own because my formal education was inadequate. I knew I needed more solid instruction so I was very pleased when I found the Drawing Academy.

Drawing Academy review by Ezra

Paper and pencil, that was 3 months ago. Paper, pencil, thinking, and planning, through time and knowledge, now there’s more to art than just markings on paper. I was nowhere near a “good artist” and I still am, but the difference to where I was before is that I know well enough what I am aiming for.

Thank you for the drawing course!

Thank you for the drawing course!

Before the Drawing Academy course, I had challenges with tonal rendering and that is why I enrolled in this Academy – to improve my drawing skills and learn new things about drawing techniques. I have learned so many things about drawing here and would definitely recommend the Drawing Academy course to every artist who wants to get better skills.

Thank you,
Khadija

It All Began With This Course

It All Began With This Course

Artwork and story from Anwar Massoud, Drawing Academy student

My name is Anwar Massoud. I would scribble and doodle in my early days, but once I became serious about my drawing, and after extensive research, I took this course. I am confident in saying that the growth over the past seven years is discernible.

Artworks and feedback from David, Drawing Academy student

I want to share my story about Drawing Academy. Before this academy, I was drawing from photos, but I always wanted to be able to draw from life. I enrolled in this course several months ago because I wanted to learn drawing and painting, which I was interested in for my entire life. Taking this course was the best thing for me.

The sprout from the seed inside

Before taking the Drawing Academy course I had a notion about some art techniques: faces proportions, shading, hatching, etc. But I was not able to use them well or to understand the proper order of applying them.

This course helped me to perfect my skills and to draw things faster. I found really useful the proportions of faces, and the order to go from the big parts to the smaller details. The different perspectives, the skills of using a pencil – all helped me a lot.

Baby steps

Drawing Academy review by Michaela, course student

I’ve spent a very long time looking for a course / art class that would help me understand the basics; something to help me develop certain skills so I could improve my drawing skills.

Without any formal art training, I felt overwhelmed by the amount of information available (whether in books or online) – and none of that seemed to really work for me.

Quality of Practice More Than Quantity of Hours

Quality of Practice More Than Quantity of Hours

Story and drawings from Mary Townsend, art competition winner

I heard a theory that it takes about 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to master a skill. So in the autumn of 2019 I promised myself to sketch every day, hoping to improve on my just-above-average drawing ability.

I want to be able to produce artworks exactly as I envision them and not remain bound to copying photographs, trying to obtain the realism I’m looking for.
