Just for a moment imagine…
You’re a member of a wonderful group of like-minded people learning to draw just like you. You’re all in this together, encouraging and helping one another every step of the way. You’re no longer alone on the journey of learning to draw. This is what it’s like to be part of our friendly, welcoming and supportive Facebook community.
Take things one step further… Imagine what it would be like to have a personal drawing mentor; a caring friend who can tell you exactly where and how you need to improve your skills. This is what it’s like if you take up the option to study in our DrawPj Mentoring Program.
With that kind of support who knows where your new skills will take you!
At DrawPj we love sharing our drawing knowledge and skills with you.
These are tried and true fundamental techniques combined with unique methods that have been honed over many years. With our help you can finally realise your dream of being able to draw once and for all!
You’ll be part of the most supportive online community of new drawing friends you’ll ever find, and optionally our laser-focused one-to-one mentoring will give you the best chance of succeeding.

Just Six Steps to Mastering Drawing Once and For All
Step 1. We start you off nice and easy…
Basic shapes and construction drawing. All the fundamentals. Master these and you’ll feel your confidence growing already. Lots of fun introductory projects like ‘Peppie the Pup’ build your skills step-by-step.
Step 2. Wow! It looks so realistic!
Shading and Form. Those skills you’ve admired in other artists for so long are now becoming your skills too. Projects like ‘The Shoe Well Travelled’ will challenge you (but you are up to the task!) Your drawing will almost ‘pop’ off the page, amazing yourself and those around you.
Step 3. Commission-worthy drawings
Portraiture. Capturing a likeness is one of the most admirable skills in art. It’s so satisfying. By the end of this section you’ll be well on your way to pencil and charcoal portraiture mastery. Some students even begin taking commissions at this point. (Yes, the portraits shown here are created by DrawPj students and they were all absolute beginners when they first started with us.)
Step 4. Look at the world in a whole new way
Perspective and Proportion. How can you realistically represent the three-dimensional world on a flat piece of paper? How do things we see change as they get closer, further away or turn towards us? These questions are all answered with perspective. Your eyes are now open to a whole new way of seeing and drawing.
Step 5. Fall in love with Colour
Coloured Pencil Techniques. It’s time to break out. Move beyond shading and into the wonderful world of colour. If you’ve ever wondered how professional coloured pencil artists can create artworks that are so rich, vibrant and with such painterly detail then wonder no more. You’re about to discover the secret.
Step 6. Completely Original Art. Made by You.
Composition. Your ultimate goal. An original drawing that is completely yours. We’ll show you the way, but everything you’ve learnt so far in the course has prepared you for this moment. A beautiful artwork which is as unique as you are, and that you can be completely proud of. (Yes, again the drawings shown here are all by DrawPj students who were beginners once.)
