About This Class

Do you want to learn how to draw, but don’t know where to start? Start by seeing!

Learning how to see the way an artist does is the key to learning how to draw well. Our brains makes us draw what we think we see, instead of what we really see. In this class, you’ll  learn how to trick your brain by doing three simple and fun exercises that will teach you how to see and will improve your drawing skills.

You'll learn:

Symbol vs reality: you'll understand why we draw what we think we see, instead of what we really see. 

Seeing like an artist: you'll learn how to see right and how to draw what you really see.

Useful exercises: you'll learn 3 easy and fun exercises that will improve your drawing skills.

This course is for beginners, you don't need any prior knowledge. Just grab a piece of paper and a pencil and start drawing! 

Your project will be to complete all exercises alongside with me. And if you have any questions during the course, I'm here to help! Just ask me in the community area.
