Hi friends! The time has finally come! Learn to Draw with Lindsay is open for enrollment! All the lessons are up in the classroom and ready when you sign up! You can work through the lessons at your own pace and, as with all of my online classes, you get lifetime access!
This class contains nearly 8 hours of step by step video instruction to teach you the fundamentals of drawing. The first 10 lessons focus on charcoal and graphite and are designed to teach you to draw what you see.
You will learn how to:
- Break a complex picture up to basic shapes
- Turn basic shapes into three-dimensional forms by shading
- See the difference between tonal values
- Use linework to help your drawing
- Draw scenes in correct perspective
- Use negative space to accurately place your subject.
- Start drawing today by employing techniques to turn off the inner critic and start creating!
Then we branch out into other drawing mediums that can help you make the leap from drawing to painting!
I have taught students of all ages to draw and you do not need “natural talent” to be successful. I created this class so anyone can learn to draw on their own schedule from the comfort of their home at a much lower price than my in-person classes. The regular price for this course is $79 but I want my faithful viewers to get the best price so I am offering it for half off this month. Use the coupon code DRAWME if the discounted price doesn’t show up. If you have painted for years but have struggled with the drawing or had to rely on patterns to get started this class is for you! If you are a homeschooling family wanting to broaden your art curriculum this class is for you! If you have a curious mind and want to experience the rewarding feeling of joy and satisfaction when you learn to draw what you see this class is for you to! Everyone is welcome in my classroom!

EDIT: If you are buying a payment plan use the coupon code DRAWMEX3 to get the discount on each payment.
To celebrate the launch of my new class I thought it would be fun to draw and paint with inexpensive chalk pastels. We will be painting an orchid on toded paper, you can use any shade of paper or cardstock you like but grey of soft blue would be especailly lovely for this. You can watch the live broadcast or replay in the player below but if you want to chat with fellow painters or ask me questions live be sure to tune in on the YouTube watch page at 12:30 ET today!

You only need a few basic supplies to take my new class. This set from Royal & Langnickel has everything you need for the first 10 lessons and they are giving a set away to one lucky reader!

Lastly I want to thank you for your support as I was building Learn to Draw with Lindsay, your kind comments on Instagram and emails asking after the class made my day.
