You raise me up
For nine years since the passing of my dear beloved husband, I have suffered depression. That is until someone introduced me to art. At first, I took it as a source of comfort. Gradually, I found out the beauty of the world in a new way through a new medium.
I feel sensitive to my surroundings, and I am dedicated to improving my art world day by day. I feel joy, pain and every emotion in between throughout my work that fuels my creative drive.
Drawing (and painting) was, like in the case with many folks, my number one priority in childhood and it did not leave me. My art teacher wanted me to attend the academy. However, somehow I ended up with different careers. So when I finally came to my “senses” in the true sense, I found myself to be a rather poorly equipped in my knowledge of art craftsmanship.
I was very glad to have found both the Web Art Academy as well as the Drawing Academy.
My art story
I have been drawing and painting for many years, but my work was based on copying from photos. I always knew that it should be a better way to create my own art, yet my drawing skills were not good enough to draw from life or imagination. It was taking me a lot of time to find a photo to draw from, and it was never the image I was looking for. So, I decided that I have to find the right art course where I could learn how to draw anything I want.
When I found the Drawing Academy I was pleasantly surprised by its quality and low cost. It offers so much, including a lifetime membership and personal support by tutors…
I enrolled in the Drawing Academy to improve my art skills. Growing up in the Caribbean I did not have the opportunity of getting any art education. However, I always was inclined to draw. I had been browsing the web looking for a class to assist me in improving my skills/knowledge when I cam across the Drawing Academy.
Feedback from a Drawing Academy graduate
I am Bader Hamud Almohiawy from the city of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.
Earlier this year, I enrolled in the Drawing Academy course and Anatomy Master Class.
I’m very glad I went through these two courses. I benefited a lot, learning traditional drawing techniques as well as a human anatomy for artists.
The information I found in these courses were very useful for me and helped greatly in improving my figurative drawing skills…
Thank you for the Course!
I am extremely happy to have found and studied at the Drawing Academy. I am tremendously pleased and delighted with what I have learned. Your feedbacks have been both encouraging and thought provoking, focused on improvement.
I wanted to study a BFA as a mature student. I have 25 years experience as a teacher in the Middle East, I studied the curriculums of most art courses and found that in todays Art colleges there is no place for drawing skills. For me that’s a corner stone to learning art. Once learned one can digress but it’s the backbone of art…
My dream to learn Academic drawing came true!
Before I took the Drawing Academy course I was taking watercolor and drawing classes privately from different teachers, but I felt that something was missing. I wanted to understand the basis of academic drawing that my teachers could not give me properly.
I’m very glad I enrolled in Drawing Academy. The knowledge this course is providing helped me to progress more quickly…
Sharing the passion of art!
I am delighted to have found the Drawing Academy course – I have always had a strong interest in art but have not been able to take up any formal training.
Thanks to this course I improved my drawing skills and learned about the fundamentals of drawing, which has been extremely insightful. This course provides extensive range of educational materials including video lessons, book, art albums, and above all personal support by the Academy tutors. I also like that I can learn at my own pace when I actually have spare time (as a busy grandparent looking after two young grandchildren)…
Since retiring I have been looking for some new things to try. Art & drawing has been on the list.
Initially, I watched some drawing video lessons from one teaching company, which was OK. However, I found the Drawing Academy course much better. Watching someone actually drawing was very helpful. This made me to pick up a pencil and start drawing. I didn’t have any prior drawing experience, apart of doodling in a kindergarten.
Medical illustration has been a particular interest for me as I’m a retired doc; so I began with that…
My name is Neil and I’m 45 years old. I never knew I would develop a passion for drawing, until I saw it through my daughter’s eyes. I have been a student of the Drawing Academy since December 2015. I was of course skeptical taking an online art course, but Academy tutors have keep me on course, consistently provided me support, and encouragement at what always seems to be the right moment…
