The Art and Science of Drawing is a remarkable program that will teach you how to draw one day at a time. The program is simple – each day you’ll watch one video lesson that will introduce an essential drawing skill, and then do the recommended practice. The Art and Science of Drawing is overflowing with powerful insights into the drawing process and offers some of the clearest, most accessible drawing instruction available. Many of the tools and techniques you’ll learn here are rarely seen outside of private art academies.

This course is highly recommended for anyone interested in painting as well. Most master painters agree that drawing is a fundamental and essential skill for all painters.

Basic skills is designed for the absolute beginner, but is recommended for anyone wanting to improve their drawing skills. 

This updated version of the course now includes hours of bonus drawing demonstrations that will show you how to apply your new drawing skills to a wide range of subject matter including botanicals and birds.  There’s even an introduction to basic figure drawing.

  • Basic Skills

    The Art & Science of Drawing: Basic Skills


    I found these courses excellent. Brent does a great job of explaining all the fundamentals of drawing. I’ve never taken a drawing course before and have already improved my basic skill set.
    Thanks, Brent for the great class.

  2. Awesome


    I tried different ways to learn to draw, but by the end of this course I could draw something people recognize.

    I’ve bought lots of books about drawing, but these videos are awesome! We can learn a lot more from videos and books then choose what we need to improve our drawings.
