Charcoal drawing is one of the oldest mediums known to man and steeped in tradition- From the Renaissance masters to cave paintings predating history. Drawing is the foundation that every art form is built on from painting and design to architecture and digital art! Before using tools like Procreate, it’s essential to have a strong understanding of the fundamentals of traditional drawing.

I designed this course to work for everyone, even students who claim they can barely draw a stick figure! I believe anyone can draw, it is a learned skill, not just something you’re born knowing how to do! You have to be taught, like playing an instrument or learning to read. I created this course for both beginners and experienced artists who want to master traditional drawing techniques. It’s made to help you to progress quickly and get to enjoy drawing!

You’ll learn time honored drawing techniques combined with contemporary approaches, delivered to you in a no nonsense, no fluff video, edited to match anyones pace perfectly. You’ll learn techniques I’ve adapted by masters like Leonardo Da Vinci, Michaelangelo, Dali, and many more, as well as lighting techniques by Rebrandt Van Rijn.

This is an interactive, guided course, so I don’t just want you to watch my demonstrations- it’s designed for you to work along with it. You control the pace and we do each lesson in tandem. I don’t just explain how to draw each line, I explain why I drew it and how I placed it.

By the end of this course, you will have learned and applied a step by step approach to drawing. And with practice, you should be able to produce academic quality drawings of any subject your heart desires.

The lesson plan consists of over 26 Hours of clear, professionally filmed and edited content. And I’m available throughout the day and evening for support and to answer any of your questions.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone from absolute beginners to experienced artists who want to learn or master a traditional drawing technique.
  • Anyone who wants to learn a creative skill that’s built on drawing, like digital animation, painting, architecture or design.
