I could not draw before I spent a few hours with Olya for the introduction to drawing. It turns out I was just never taught some basic skills on how to see and to replicate what you are seeing. Then I took Nikusha's 12 week drawing course. In three months people think I've been drawing forever. They say, I can't draw like you can. Before I could only draw stick people. They are the real deal. They teach from classical principles, the foundations so you can expand wherever you want to go. They are genuine and give you important feedback to improve how you see and how to apply it. I can't wait to do more and have found my first passion.
