Like an Artist

Seeing is the key to drawing. How does seeing affect us as artists? How can we see better?

The six artists in this course will show you how to see things around you—people, places, objects—as beautiful subjects for sketching. We’ll explore you how to get your eyes and brain to collaborate better; how we see ourselves through self-portraits; how to see and draw nature; how to see a plain ballpoint pen as a versatile tool for making beautiful art. With this course, you’ll see your world and your art in a whole new way.
