I have been drawing for several years mostly by using the grid method to resize small pictures. I have never taken drawing lessons before but I have watched drawing videos on line. But doing this course is giving me a solid foundation and is helping me to see mistakes I have made in the past and I can see how I can improve. I also find the forum feedback extremely motivating and very useful. Thank you Nolan and Dennis, you are great teachers. I find the way they presented each lesson was very down to earth and easy to follow.Dorothy - Australia
This course has given me the confidence to keep on drawing. When I first started, I felt like my drawings were worse than a 3 y/o. After almost completing this course, I now see that, although I'm no Leonardo Da'Vinci, I can at least produce drawings that are recognizable and somewhat pleasing to look at. Also, I have noticed that I look at things differently. I have started seeing shadows and edges on everyday things and thinking they might be nice to draw.
