Clearly Explained

Took drawing classes in the pass, however theses drawing techniques were never so clearly explained. Bravo!

OK, I got it, but

I need to let you know in front, I am a senior of 82, and a history of never being able to draw. I am also a trainer of skills for some 50+ yr. I liked the instructor, voice was good, spoke softly, easy to understand, and I believe will be able to draw when this is all done. BUT, I really need to know more about the tools being used, and why. Pat you did a great job. Thank you.

Really Educative

Must watch

Great introduction to figure drawing

As someone who is barely able to draw a stick figure, this class was enormously successful. I was able to draw a figure somewhat realistically for the first time ever. I would recommend this class to a beginner like myself who is intimidated by drawing but still interested in experimenting with it. Very helpful.
