don't just show you the techniques that I use, I go much further to
train your brain into thinking like an artist. These lessons are
designed to expand your thinking so that you understand what it is that
you need to do, why you need to do it and most importantly, how!
This course will fast track your process of learning how to draw."
What is it that stops us from being able to draw? Why does it seem so
easy for some people to draw while most people struggle with even basic
stick figures? How can we change our thinking about drawing to allow us
to be able to draw like an expert?
This easy to follow weekly program is designed to get you past those
road blocks that are stopping you from developing the skills of drawing.
If you have always wanted to draw but getting frustrated at your
results, or you think that you can only draw stick figures but nothing
else, or you just want to improve your drawing skills then this
membership program is for you.
This program could be the turning point in your life. This membership is aimed at helping you transform your drawing skills to a point where you can proudly say that you CAN draw. I’m very excited about helping you learning how to draw and I hope that you are just as excited to learn.
"Just wanted to say how great your lessons are. So many times I've been trying to find a great way to be able to "see" what I'm actually drawing and your measuring techniques have really helped open up my eyes. I have the book "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" which has helped by upside down drawing but nothing has really helped me get the proportions correct.
Most teachers (online and otherwise) just expect us to draw shapes (and not accurately at that). I prefer to draw from photos (and like it to be as close as possible to the photo) and there really isn't anything like this out there for lessons. I'm so glad I found your website!!
This membership has been well worth it :)!"
Watching endless hours of youtube art videos may help you, but to really improve you need a focused, actionable and fun lesson plan to follow. This program is designed to change the way that your brain thinks about drawing. These are the fundamentals that you need to know to be able to improve your drawing skills.
This program follows on from the free introductory course where we have covered the 3 core fundamentals of seeing and drawing lines. If you have just completed the level 1 free introduction, this course will pick up right where you left off and help you develop your skills even further.
We start right at the beginning, gradually building your skills with new challenges each week. The video lessons are made to train your brain to see like an artist and to give you the skills to confidently draw anything that you want.
Love it ! ... this is exactly what I hoped for in this course different techniques to train the brain and eyes. I'm not a natural drawer so I need all the help I can get. I've done the exercise once, it was fun and I was quite surprised how well some of the lines came out. I'm looking forward to practising this exercise everyday until the next lesson :)
First we train your brain to understand how we perceive and how to translate what we are seeing into shapes and lines that make sense as a drawing. Understanding how we see is the most critical part of learning how to draw, and is often the part that most drawing teachers overlook.
We'll cover lines and shapes, pencil control, shading methods, coloured pencil, perspective, form & dimension, drawing from imagination, drawing faces, animals, trees and so much more.
Thank you for being a really good teacher. You explain things in a manner I can understand, I can hear. I am thrilled with this new adventure in my life especially as I only started drawing last September. Once again thank you. Sincerely
This is much more than just a watch and learn course. I help you all the way through the course. This program is a community of people all helping each other learn and providing encouragement the whole way.
Once you join the membership program you will have access to our private Facebook group where you can share your progress, receive feedback from me, and encouragement from other likeminded people that are going through the same learning journey.
Many people find the Art Lessons Online Facebook community to be just as valuable as the lessons.
I also provide bonus live lessons and extra tips within the group.
