Unsure if this is the course for you?
Buy at the current beta price of $14.99 and have lifetime access to the information. More information added? More downloads? Price increases? Doesn't, matter, you will still have access.
You say, “I can’t draw a straight line”, but wish you could draw with confidence.
You see others creating drawings you want to do, if you just knew where to start.
You are looking for something to help you be more mindful in your day-to-day life.
You want to dip your toe into creating art, but don’t want to invest a lot of money and space on materials.
You often wish you knew how to communicate to others what you see in your mind's eye so someone else could see it as well.
Beta simply means that I have not previously offered this course to the public. I am offering it at a much lower cost this time through, to help me build the best course I might offer my students. Depending on student feedback this first time through, I will make changes.
It is a skill you can learn, with both practice and desire. If you can write the alphabet, you can learn to draw.
Did you know that in nature, there are no straight lines? If you need a straight line, you can use a ruler. If you want to challenge yourself and improve your life? Learn to draw.
This offers more depth than you will find on YouTube, without wasting time searching all over for just the video you hope will be the right one to watch.
I break the information into bite-size chunks you can do at your own pace. Do ten minutes a day, or binge through and do it all as soon as possible. It's whatever works best for you. Drawing also helps your mental and emotional health, adding to the quality of life you lead.
To live and breath? Probably not. But neither is watching movies, reading for leisure, owning a pet, or doing anything for the pure challenge and the joy it can add to your life. It can help you really see the physical world around you. While simultaneously bringing an escape from the world.
