About This Class

Drawing is an essential skill in various aspects of life and I am not talking only about art. 

For example, drawing is done to create art, to create plans, to design websites, to describe concepts, to learn a subject, to express feelings, to communicate effectively, to eliminate day to day  stress, to just have fun and the list goes on.

Good drawing skill is achievable with just 10 minutes of practice daily. When I tell this to people, first question they have is "what should I draw?" If they can't find an answer to this question, they just don't draw anything.

So, to answer this question everyday for 30 days, I have created this course. In this course there are 30 lectures and in each lecture, I draw an object and then show you the reference photo I used, for you to draw from. Though most of the drawings are done with pencil on paper, there are a few done with a ball point pen and a few done on an iPad using 5 different drawing apps.

After 30 days you'll be able to find subjects for drawing on your own because it is not important "what" you draw or how accurate each drawing is but what's important is that you put in the time to practice drawing regularly.

If you want to develop a daily drawing practice or just need 30 prompts for drawing, you should join this course. It does not matter if you are a student or a professional or a homemaker or a finance person or a fighter pilot or a school teacher. All you need to have is a desire to draw, draw and draw.

Remember that quality of your drawings is directly related to quantity of your drawings.

So, enroll in this class and kick start your daily drawing practice.

This class is highly recommended if you struggle with being consistent with your drawing practice. I have never drawn as much as since taking these lectures I actually made more drawings within the next 3 weeks that I have during the entire past year! Also it showed me how any subject can be interesting and that will greatly help in the future to choose anything and just draw, which was I believe the biggest factor for holding me back from picking a pencil and just draw.
I took this class because I wanted to establish a more regular drawing practice, and it really helped me. It did take me 60 days to complete the 30 drawings, but only because Life kept intervening. I'm so glad I stuck with it! I definitely saw an improvement in my drawing, and in my confidence about drawing. The objects Mandar chose were interesting to draw, and I learned a lot watching his approach to drawing them.
