"I would like to thank you and your staff for taking the time to assist us with our projects. It helps to be able to use Flikr and MySpace to post work, then get tips and pointers from others as well as the staff. I have been drawing since I could hold a crayon, but never had any formal training. After this class, I understand why I draw certain ways and can now make better progress with my pictures. I truly enjoyed this class. Thank you again for all of your help."

"Just wanted to say thanks for the instruction. Your guidance in the past 12 lessons was a great start. I also realize that there is much more study and practice required on my part. I have seen a great improvement in my drawing by simply implementing many of your suggestions. Thanks again for taking the time to transfer your knowledge."

"This has been great Chad. I have been working as a commercial Artist for over 30 years and thru the years I have sort of 'lost' the ability to 'see' in order to paint for me and not for some nameless consumer that doesn't care one whit what talent it took to create. I have found my creativity again. Thanks so much for your fresh approach to teaching. You are very down to earth and your lessons were done with great clarity. I hope all beginning artists have a chance to have you as their first instructor. You are very inspirational."

ExpertRating Online Drawing Course Coverage (6 weeks program)  

Week One

Wednesday - Lesson 01

Have you ever wondered what kind of tools you would need to become an artist? Going into an art store can sometimes be overwhelming, so this first lesson, will take a look at the basic tools and supplies an artist needs for various projects. After you understand the tool set, you'll be prepared to confidently go to your local art store and start experimenting with supplies!

Friday - Lesson 02

With your art supplies in hand, it's time you get a firm understanding of drawing basics. This lesson will look at the importance of the silhouette and the outlining shape. When beginning to draw, it's so important that you understand the shapes you look at and how to put them onto paper. You'll also learn an amazingly fun one-eye drawing trick!

Week Two

Wednesday - Lesson 03

This lesson will go over the two major components of drawing for the beginner. You'll find that the first challenge you're faced with is drawing from things you see. This is, after all, how everyone learns to draw. You'll gain lots of great tips on how to draw what you see, how to set up scenes for photographs, and much more.

Friday - Lesson 04

Did you know that there are five forms of light? That's right! You'll learn how to illuminate the scene and change the mood all at once. This lesson will go over lighting and shading so you'll have all the knowledge a beginning artist needs when learning how to sketch (and more). Have you ever drawn a picture and realized that it looked quite flat? Well, that might be because you never added light to your images. Students will learn how to add light, and more importantly, shading!

Week Three

Wednesday - Lesson 05-

Perspective has always been a necessity for anyone drawing pictures with depth. If you wanted to draw a set of buildings and have the viewer looking down the road, how would you do it? One, two, and even three-point perspective is how! In this lesson, you'll learn how to find the horizon line, create depth in your page, and even find the vanishing points of your lines.

Friday - Lesson 06

All of which will get you on the road to finding your own style and creative expression.

Week Four

Wednesday - Lesson 07

It's all about telling your story! If you see a drawing of a big arrow pointing to the right, you'd probably look to the right, wouldn't you? In this discussion on layout and design, this lesson will look at what it takes to persuade your audience to look at certain spots on your images at particular times without a big arrow. Sounds tough, doesn't it? Well, this lesson will show you some great methods and proven techniques for controlling everything you draw.

Friday - Lesson 08

It's time to put your skills to the test! In this lesson, students will work up an entire scene with thumbnails then begin working on a first draft. This lessonís discussion on creating landscapes will help you gain confidence in your skills that you've been working on up to this point. This lesson will also look at how to render your scenes with realistic lighting and shading while keeping the flow entertaining and informative

Week Five

Wednesday - Lesson 09

Do pink and blue go together? Great question! What about the shadow color on an apple? What's the compliment to green?

This lesson on color composition will be one of the most exciting and rewarding lessons in your art education!

Friday - Lesson 10

Week Six

Wednesday - Lesson 11

This lesson is a great chance to get up close and personal with animals because it's packed full of measurements, proportions, and basic shapes for many of the animals around you.

This lesson will look at step-by-step techniques and sketches you can use to help draw monkeys and other crazy animals. It's time to stop monkeying around and start drawing!

Friday - Lesson 12
