Portrait by Zora, Drawing Academy student
My elementary school art teacher paid attention only to those who could already draw and paint. This hurt me; I was overlooked and felt invisible. So, I lived all these years believing that I could not draw or paint. Every time I looked at a painting I found interesting, I felt a desire to be able to create something, anything.
A few years ago, my husband brought me a cherry flower branch that was so beautiful, I immediately sat down and painted it in watercolors. I thought that such a burning desire to paint and such a beautiful subject should result in a beautiful painting. I could not have been more disappointed – it was difficult and as much as I tried, it just got worse. It was clear to me that if I wanted to create a painting that I would be satisfied with, I had to find some help.
I have not drawn for years. Whilst I always wanted to do it, I was lack of confidence and didn’t know how to go about until I came to know your drawing course.
Drawing Academy course provided a structured and comprehensive course on drawing. It laid down a strong foundation for me to further my interest in the subject. Not only that I begin to know more how to appreciate art works but also getting more confidence in my own drawings.
From Novice to Amateur, headed toward Master
My skills prior to The Drawing Academy were limited due to my lack of understanding of light and shadow and creating a 3 dimensional space on a 2 dimensional platform.
Now I have a better grasp on light and shadow. Creating 3 dimensional space on a 2 dimensional platform utilizing the one, two and 3 point perspectives has increased my level of art.
Life Changing course for me
My name is Abhimanyu and I am from India. I am very passionate about drawing since childhood but due to lack of guidance, I was not able to improve my skills in drawing. As a working professional it is very hard to join a regular college to learn fine arts. I am very lucky that I found one, while searching on google – the Drawing academy, an online course.
I did a deep search on Drawing Academy before joining the course and I found it very interesting, also very convenient to learn. I am working in hospitality industry, so time flexibility is very important to me.
Feedback from Drawing Academy graduate
I have now completed all the Drawing Academy assignments. Thank you very much.
I have found the course not only informative but it has also shown me the reasons for my frustration in my art work, knowing that something was wrong but not knowing exactly what it was and how to correct the mistakes. You have given me the knowledge as well as the confidence that I certainly did not have prior to doing your course. I feel that I have improved in all aspects of my art. When painting I now have the confidence to draw on the canvas with a paint brush and am able to get the drawing in without being terrified of what I was producing.
Drawing Academy review by Daya Santos
I took some oil painting classes & fashion drawing classes. I was looking for a classical drawing course for a long time, because the art college classes don’t care for teaching art techniques anymore.
With the Drawing Academy, I’ve learned so much, and exactly what I wanted to learn and more, so much more. I remembered when I saw a video on YouTube from the Drawing Academy, about what I would learn on the course. And I was so overwhelmed and excited with the beauty of the teachings. And I’m looking forward to do the other courses – Anatomy & Painting too.
Now I finally got through both the Drawing Academy and the Anatomy Master Class courses. It took me a while. I understand that I have a long way to go to master the art of drawing; however, I have developed a habit to practice a little every day and, from where I see it, I have learned a lot.

I have been drawing for many years, but all those years before enrolling in the Drawing Academy I did not know a human head proportions and anatomy and had been using grid to copy portraits. I also didn’t know how to draw in perspective.
I have learnt a lot in the Drawing Academy course. Now I can draw what I see or imagine (even though it’s not perfect) because I know the rules of constructive drawing, understand perspective and proportions and know the steps of portrait drawing.
I can proudly say that my drawing skills improved so much thanks to this drawing course.
I would recommend Drawing Academy to everyone who would like to learn professional drawing techniques and push drawing skill on a higher level.
Thank you Drawing Academy!
I absolutely LOVE being a member of the Drawing Academy. I hesitated for nearly a year to join and am so thrilled that I finally made the commitment. Being able to take my time through the classes lets me savor and “master” the lessons. Instead of rushing through to meet some kind of imaginary deadline, I watch the videos and practice the technique. Oftentimes, as with perspective drawing, I go back and re-watch the video to fully grasp the technique.
Story by by Mia Vujović
Ever since I remember, all I truly wanted to do is to draw.
In high school I went to two art workshops, and now I’m a first year student at Art Academy in Cetinje, Montenegro, studying painting. But I’m not really being taught the rules, it’s more based on expressing yourself.
I found out about http://DrawingAcademy.com on Youtube. I watched some of Academy’s free videos and it was like a goldmine, I got more information in 6 minutes here than I was collecting over 6 months elsewhere.
I find the Drawing Academy system of teaching the most efficient and I think it will teach me more than my art academy.
I think Drawing Academy can help me a lot in fulfilling my goal of becoming a better artist and making my mission come true.
