Sure they can, as long as they are willing to put in the time. In fact, the best way to learn is with the help of a friendly instructor or friend who will give you the attention you need to stay the course.
We know all about drawing and we’ve been there – we’ve worked with thousands of adults to get started, and they’ve all learned something as a result. But learning to draw does run in families, too – and we’ve seen the positive impact many parents will have when they invite an adult to join them at work.
So, what is the best way to learn to draw? How best to use an experienced drawing teacher?
We’ve spent a lot of time over the past year and a half researching and discussing this topic with professional educators, parents, and other adults who have been drawn to learning to draw. After careful consideration, this list is what we found. Read on!
The Top Five Drawing Classes in the World
1. Learn To Draw: An Intensive Drawing Course
This course will take 2-3 weeks (usually 2-4) to complete, and it is run by Todd Allen, an experienced instructor in the art of drawing, who is the creator of Learn To Draw, which has over 2,700 instructors worldwide!
Todd Allen is a nationally acclaimed drawing instructor and has taught hundreds of people how to draw over the past 20 years. He has taught people from all ages to teach them through simple tools like pencils, charcoal, charcoal brushes, and traditional techniques using easel and watercolor.
This intensive 3-day course is free to all people. Todd and his instructors will walk you through each step in learning to draw. They will lead you through a series of activities and exercises designed to teach each of the five skills which are discussed in this course.
So take a class and learn to draw!
2. Drawing-To-Learn: An Interactive, Self-Study Course
Another free 3-day course, but not only for adults. This course is taught by professional artist Jeff Fagan. This course, part of Fagan’s “Drawing-To-Learn”, is an interactive course, in which the instructor talks about drawing all the basics. This is a great way to learn before or after a formal class.
This course and Fagan’s others are available from the website for Adults With Drawing Challenges. This is our favorite free course.
