Want to learn to draw?

The Art with Vanessa Joret Drawing Course is designed to take students from beginner to artist.   It is suitable for absolute raw beginners and for those who like to draw but have been getting frustrated with their results and are looking for some practical/accessible tuition to help them get their drawings to where they want them, by expanding and developing their skills.  The course is made up of Key Units and Projects which will continue to be released over an extended period of time.

In this Free Course Preview you will have access to a significant portion of "Key Unit 1 - Getting You Started" which is the foundation stone of the course.  This generous preview includes 11 modules, all with videos, adding up to about one hours viewing!  It also includes the Materials List  so you can see what art materials you will need for the first few modules.

 It will also give you a "sneak-peek" at some of the first drawing Projects!

This really is more of a "mini course" than just a "preview"!  See below for the topics covered ...
