Hi, my name is Le Dan Thi. I’ve always been passionate about art since I was a kid, but my family couldn’t afford the tuition for formal training, so all I did was self-taught from photos I found online. In my country the education is very limited and has been dropped from the curriculum because people think it is not as important as other subjects. That let me down because painting and studying works from renaissance help me eased my depression a lot throughout the years. I also have autism so it’s harder to focus on anything other than art at all.
I attended the competition with very few expectations because there are so many talented people out there, and I do not have any friends to support me.
Drawing Academy is a great opportunity with lots of understanding on classical art and dedicated instructors – a place I’ve always dreamed of. So I will seize any chance to ‘dream my painting and paint my dream’.
