Some day, there is going to be a special exhibition at the Met called The Art of Quarantine: Boredom in the Time of Coronavirus. Don't you want your art to be there? You can be the artist who learned how to draw through online courses during quarantine and went on to become one of the most accomplished artists of their generation. That sounds pretty cool, right? But first you have to, you know, learn how to draw. So let's help you with that. These courses are all on sale now.
This nine-course bundle includes classes on portrait drawing, still lifes, and even comic book drawing, and you can get it all for a price you choose. $1? $1,000? They literally don't care. Just beat the average price, and all nine courses are yours. Pay anything at all, and you'll still get a class on drawing harbor landscapes. Everyone loves harbor landscapes.
In this five-course bundle, Colin Bradley will teach you how to paint landscapes by letting you follow along as he paints a number of scenes himself. Bradley has been a professional artist since 1982, and his training videos have amassed more than 3 million views. Think of him as your own personal Bob Ross. Reach out and paint trees.
So the static stuff isn't good enough for you, huh? Then learn how to bring drawings to life in this 17-hour bundle! You'll cover Adobe tools including Illustrator, After Effects, and Premiere Pro to discover how to turn still drawings into life-like moving characters and scenes. Your fanfiction game is about to go off the rails.
Amy Wynee has an MFA in Painting and Drawing from the New York Academy of Art and has been teaching painting and drawing for more than 25 years, including 10 years at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Her work has been exhibited in galleries nationwide and she received RISD CE's 2014 Teacher of Excellence award. In other words, she knows her stuff. Here, she teaches you how to draw a still life.
Mark Kokavec has been working in footwear since 1997, designing for the likes of Nike, New Balance, and Under Armour. He's a design pro who founded Render Demo to help designers benefit from video demos by industry leaders. This sketchbook uses the Render Demo model to help you learn how to draw by progressing through the book. The further you go, the lines begin to disappear, giving you more autonomy until you can visualize shapes and draw without the need of guidelines. Don't worry, you won't just be drawing shoes, although with the way some of you choose to spend your alone time, it wouldn't be surprising if that future quarantine art exhibit is largely foot-based.
