Drawing is more than fundamentals, it is an interpretation of the world through your lens as an artist. A drawing is capable of stimulating a visceral feeling, impacting the viewer emotionally, pique your curiosity, and more.
This track will broaden your repertoire in drawing, pushing you to create drawings that influence the viewer in a more dramatic manner. We recommend doing our Drawing Basics Track before starting this track so you have a solid foundation of skills to build on.
Do the track at your own pace! Taking the time to process the content is important, and so we don’t advise putting pressure on yourself to finish the track quickly. Remember to have fun and enjoy the process of learning!

We understand that many people have limited budgets for supplies, so our tracks are structured so that you can use any materials you want, within that track’s focus.
The track lessons are designed to use traditional drawing supplies. Several of the prompts are most effective if you are willing to step outside of the typical drawing tool. Experimentation with unusual tools and materials will provide a more enriching experience.
