Drawing Academy review by Lumiel Kim
I subscribed to the Drawing Academy course some time ago and I would like to add my notes of appreciation for this service that you offer to the public. You reveal to the world the incredible genius and indomitable spirit. I salute you, Vladimir and Natalie. May world peace come to us in our lifetime.
Story and sketches by Ronald, Drawing Academy student I had no drawing skills prior to taking the Drawing Academy course. At best I used to doodle when bored. The reason I enrolled is because I was coming up for retirement and wanted an interest that would keep me occupied. I have had many hours of enjoyment from taking this course….
Feedback from John, Drawing Academy student
I only started a few weeks ago; less than a week for the drawing course, and you are blowing my mind.
I have spent thousands of dollars trying to learn how to paint and draw. I have taken both live and online classes, sometimes traveling thousands of miles.
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.
I’m so happy to have the Drawing Academy membership along with Life Drawing Academy and Anatomy Master Class to learn from. They are amazing resources and definitely helped prepare me for the workshop in Scottsdale and any open studio that I attend here in Tucson.
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.
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.
