Learn to Draw

Based on the same sequential method of our 8-week atelier course, this online course is delivered in 8-week segments, with each week focusing on one key building block. For beginners, we will start at the very beginning, giving you the fundamental concepts and skills to take your art-making to the next level. For intermediate and advanced students, this course will help fill in all those gaps that you find so frustrating.

Assignments will be personally reviewed and critiqued by Mandy, giving an all-essential feedback for the development of your skills.
