CLASSICAL DRAWING FUNDAMENTALS
I struggled to learn how to draw for many, many years. No matter how many classes I took from art schools or individual artists, my drawing never improved much. I felt frustrated because even though I was taking classes, drawing still seemed to involve a lot of guesswork. Even though I thought I had talent, I lacked the knowledge and skill to draw with confidence.
Then I found classical training, and things changed.
Classical training taught me a systematic approach to drawing that can be applied to any subject, whether a still life, landscape, portrait or figure. I finally have a framework to serve as a path to realizing my full creative potential.
The downside of traditional classical training was that it required an extraordinary investment of time and money. I have invested years of my life and over $20,000 in tuition attending the world's best classical training programs!
In the end it was worth it, but I believe classical training can be much more accessible, so more artists can benefit from it. I started Classical Drawing Academy to make rigorous classical training available online and through in-person workshops.
The Classical Drawing Fundamentals course will help you:
- Know your materials better
- Feel more confident when starting a drawing, painting or sculpture
- See your subjects with greater clarity and understanding
- Get more predictable and consistent results
- Expand your vision for what you can achieve as an artist
- Feel connected to a community of fellow artists
The course curriculum is based on proven training exercises that date back to the Renaissance, when artists like Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci created masterpieces. The legacy of these great masters has been passed down from teacher to student through the atelier tradition for hundreds of years, and forms the foundation of this course.
