Absolutely fantastic course for beginners! Never realized how much drawing is about SHAPES. Brett really instills some good fundamentals, and I'm finally seeing them pay off.

Thank you so much for this wonderful course. I really enjoyed a lot and learned to draw each and every subject beyond my expectations. Once again I thank you for this useful course .

I felt that there's a heck of a lot of info and ideas that Brent came out with that I feel that this Basics course will be one that I will be coming back to again and again. Brent is obviously a skilled artist and tutor and gives you a lot to think of and work with. There's still some work that I have to complete but will be doing so very shortly, and with the help of the instruction on this course I am sure to succeed eventually I am feeling. He is very encouraging in that he says that all artists get it wrong at first and only get it right by persevering. This always helps to keep in mind. As I practiced the basics I could feel and see that these could lead to greater confidence in the future. I have drawn before and have practiced other similar basics but I feel it's something I must do much, much more. And yes being tentative in your work after much observation is I believe so important. I could see the point of a lot of what Brent says in the course. Thanks Brent keep up the good work, we need creative people to help others do creative things.

It was really informative and practical. A good introductory course. Helped me make my basic skilsl stronger with a proper logic behind every exercise. Thank You Brent Eviston.

By Peter Gibbs on 9/14/2020

I have enjoyed drawing on and off for many years, but sadly despite all my endeavours and perseverance I still lack the knowledge and skills to produce what I would call quality drawings, so I made a continuous decision to find a teacher who not only has the experience in the art of drawing but more importantly in teaching the art.
I recently came across Brent Eviston The Art & Science of Drawing and signed up for the Basic Skills course. I am amazed in just one week how much I have improved - I must admit with lots of practice. I have not finished the course yet but am excited about the potential development of my drawing skills.
Thank you, Brent.

By Sue Lachenicht on 5/10/2020

Excellent teaching techniques. I have NEVER drawn something before because I thought I had no talent. So far I have drawn a jay, a dove x 3, and a magnolia x2. Its far from well drawn but beyond my expectations. Looking forward to the next course.
