Drawing is the Foundation

Ask any great artist alive … drawing is the foundation of all art.

The Old Masters knew that without excellent drawing skills, an artist cannot do great paintings or sculpture. Yet today, too many artists try to shortcut drawing, resulting in a lifetime of frustration and artwork that is rarely given high praise, or even noticed.

Why is this?

Simply put, there are very few people on earth who know how to teach the techniques of the Old Masters, the highest standard of drawing an artist can achieve.

You see, when you find the right person to show you the methods that make things easier, you can save a tremendous amount of time (and avoid a tremendous amount of frustration!).
