Drawing from Line to Life

An introduction to creating realistic drawings using basic techniques (with instructional videos)

This course includes instructional videos

Based on Mike Sibley's drawing bible "Drawing from Line to Life", this Beginners Course is for artists who have a little knowledge, a few basic drawing skills, and a desire to progress to a higher level. Absolute beginners can even undertake this course, although some prior knowledge of the basics might be helpful.

You will be taken step-by-step through the fundamental drawing techniques - each technique leading naturally to the next. Using a series of drawing exercises, you'll learn not only the 'How' but also the more important 'Why', which Mike will explain in depth. You need to devote a minimum of four to six hours per week, and possibly more in the final week.

The course uses the same natural progression of drawing techniques that Mike teaches in his UK and USA physical workshops, which has benefited artists who work in many mediums – including watercolour, pen & ink, pastels and sculpture.
