The Complete Online Drawing Course

Learn Fundamental Drawing Skills with Full Instructor Support

Hi, my name is Cindy Wider. I loved drawing as a child… but I believed I just wasn’t talented enough, so I gave up.

It wasn’t until years later, as an adult that I stumbled upon the ability to draw. I had become ill and turned to drawing as a form of therapy.

Once I realised I could draw after-all, I was so excited and became obsessed with helping others learn to draw too!

As I carefully observed my students I had an amazing revelation. I discovered that those who experience the most success have 5 SECRETS in common.

I want you to know about these secrets too! Once you know about them, you’ll have the answer that could save you years of sheer frustration and wasted time.

Yes, these are real ‘before’ and ‘after’ self portraits!

In fact, the ‘after’ portraits are created just half-way through the course.

Build your Drawing Skills Naturally!

The fun projects and exercises in my unique course are especially designed to naturally build, refine and combine your 4 Comparison Skills so that you can master the whole skill of drawing once and for all.

No more wasting time searching around the internet looking for random tutorials. No more wondering if you’re learning the right thing. Just follow my proven plan. You’ll amaze yourself as your drawing skills rapidly grow.

 

I am really glad that I chose the mentor option to complete the course. It was worth the money to get the feedback about what I was working on to improve my technique. It was very timely and constructive. Much better than I could ever have gotten going to college! Sheila Perry - USA

I valued my mentorship with you enormously! You guided me so well through my first clumsy artworks to my later more accomplished pieces. You know exactly what a drawing needs and your instincts and advice are invaluable! Marta Oliehoek-Samitowska - Netherlands

Your 6 Step Plan to Creating Your Own Original Drawings

Step 1. Start out 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 (by this stage you’re 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. You’ll have all the skills to create beautiful artworks, each one as unique as you are. (Yes, again the drawings shown here are all by DrawPj students who were beginners once.)

I didn’t expect much but the program seemed well structured and answered most of my questions so I decided to give it a try and I never regretted it I must say. My life is divided between before and after DrawPj! Olga Rogovets - Canada

For me it wasn’t about just the course content, but the positive encouragement and interaction in the group I experienced. I wanted to learn but the people part was important to me, which I enjoyed. Scott Kunkle - USA
