Story from Marina Georgiadou, Drawing Academy student

I lack basic skills, that is why I enrolled in the Drawing Academy course. In this course, there is so much information for a beginner like me to absorb. I watch Drawing Academy video lessons again and again to take in all that this course teaches. I still need a great deal of practice.

Drawing has become so interesting!

Drawing has become so interesting!

Still-life Drawing by Kedar

I applied what I’ve learned in lesson Four of the Drawing Academy course

I drew this from life. This drawing opened up a whole new level of understanding of contours, rendering, measuring techniques, perspective (particularly ellipses) for me. Whether it’s a simple sketch, indicating where the light is coming from and contours with simple hatching or revealing the full tonal values or rendering details, all seem to be fun and interesting!

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.

Drawing Academy review by María Rosario Labado

Drawing Academy review by María Rosario Labado

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.
