Painting by Alice Powers
I am excited to enter the drawing academy competition. I recently retired from being a public health nurse (RN). One of my goals for retirement is to develop my art skills. I grew up around artists throughout my childhood. My mother & her associates were fine artists & taught oil painting. Her background was studying of old masters oil painting. I absorbed a lot of information thru living in the culture & taking oil painting lessons.
When I retired from being a nurse I decided to devote the rest of my life to art study & painting. I enrolled in a local art school to learn the basics of drawing.
I learned about the Drawing Academy online and am happy to know that the old masters techniques are still being taught. I am not a writer or a social media person but will still enter this competition. I would like to improve my drawing and I would like to learn all the information I can from your on line classes. Thank you for this opportunity.
