About This Class


The art of drawing and sketching is the basic of almost all visual arts and crafts.

This class is about the techniques which artists use to draw and sketch. Believe me, drawing can be learnt, the only condition is that you should put in the time required.

In this class I demonstrate 5 techniques that make drawing easier. But to get the most out of this course, you should do the exercises and practice. Practice makes progress!

I have been teaching these techniques in my studio workshops over the years and have seen significant improvements in the students' work in a short period of time. Now you too can get better at drawing by taking this class and doing the practice.

So, it does not matter you are a student, a working professional, an aspiring fine artist, a craft maker, a home decorator or someone who just loves to draw, this course is for you.

See you in the class and I am eager to see your projects. Let your creativity bloom!
