What Students Say
"You’ve shown me answers to so many of my questions about pen and ink. I plan to put what I’ve learned into practice and am excited about taking another course. Your instruction is excellent and well worth my time and money. Thank you. I’ve waited a long time for something like this." -Phoebe
"This course is SO great! I drew your landscape, a different face & still life, and your dog. I have drawn/painted with pen & ink before, but I still learned SO much. I had never been able to get myself to draw a face before, but I soldiered through, and I was happy with the result. Your instruction really helps. I also appreciate how we can download at different densities. It’s very expensive to stream video where I live, so it was nice to be able to download it and watch it at my own pace!!" -Karen
