How Does This Course Work?

In this interactive course, you learn how to shade your line drawings or as we say in the art world, draw in tone, to achieve three dimensions. It’s very empowering and rewarding to be able to create realistic drawings and this course enables you to do just that. You post comments, questions and drawings in a blog like format and I respond within two days with detailed explanations and drawings tailored just for you. I’m with you every step of the way, encouraging you and helping you move on to achieve the drawings of your dreams. It’s all possible!

If you have no drawing experience at all, I recommend you do my Interactive or DIY drawing in line for beginner’s course. I give some fundamental drawing tips in this course but in the line course you will learn how to draw and be ideally equipped for shading.

I give you simple mindfulness techniques to help you relax and calm the apprehension and doubt that sometimes arises when you are learning something new. Everyone can learn how to draw in tone to achieve three dimensions, including you.

“Thank-you for the great feedback. I especially loved seeing your drawings and reading your comments.”

I’ve taught hundreds of students with the same doubts and dreams as you and watched them transform into budding artists. You can do it too and I’m here to show you how.
