Learn to Draw

Have you longed to express your artistic side? Do you have great ideas but not the skill to execute them?

Everyone loves to paint and draw as very young children. As we grow up, we become aware and begin to compare our abilities with others. If we don't measure up, we quit. It's true, some children are blessed with a natural ability, but everyone can draw... and learn to draw more accurately... with a skill-based classical approach. Consider the example below by the same student before and after instruction. Do you recognize the subject? It is a young Marlon Brando. You can see the difference instruction makes!


"Marlon Brando," Student Work, 16-years old, graphite on paper. This is the work of the same student before and after the Grid Drawing module.
