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!

interesting painting techniques for beginners. Techniques to help cope with the proportions of the objects.
Good tricks for improving your accuracy. I think these techniques would be helpful as an exercise every now and then, or during warmup sketching.
It's the very basics, yet very crucial. After taking the class, everything seems a lot simpler and doable!

Fine Artist, Sculptor, Illustrator, Designer

I am an artist based at Pune, India. I do paintings, sculptures, murals and also conduct art workshops. I also teach through online courses.

I have exhibited my paintings and sculptures in 4 solo shows and 7 group exhibitions. My paintings and sculptures are in private and corporate collection in 7 countries.

Painting and sculpture have been my more-than-hobbies since early age and for 15 years of my corporate career, I worked in manufacturing and software industries and pursued art part-time. Since June 2011, I have reversed this equation and have become a full time artist.

I have two websites where I showcase my work.
