    I just wanted to see if one can learn to draw/paint. I always hated art because I was so bad.
    That was in grade school in circa 1952 …

    I did some very basic drawing. And painting. I’ve also done some oil pastels and loved it.

    Hello everyone, well I’m really excited to have found this art post on Facebook. I have a family full of artists, but the two most talented of the bunch are my Momma Pat and my nephew Justin. My mother passed away just over 4 years ago , and my nephew can no longer do his art due to injury.. I’m a newlywed, Jan 10th was our 4 year anniversary. I will turn 51 in a couple months also.. I’m disabled so I don’t have a job, and I’m kinda going stir crazy.. this will be perfect.. I won’t be board any longer.. thank you! I’m really excited about the next 14 days.

    I would love to take your free course; I do a lot of coloring with pencils and would love to learn more about drawing my own pictures.

    It was promoted to me as a lesson series on how to paid model railroad backdrops. Certainly not related at all to model railroads.

      As a model railroader for more than 60 years, I have built a few model railroad layouts in different scales and most had/have painted backdrops. I use acrylic paint as they are inexpensive, fast drying and easy to work and clean up with water. You might look at lessons days 4,6,7,9,12,13 and 14.

    I thought I received this free 14 day course as part of my Craftsy membership. Looking at other responses people seem to think that they will eventually be charged something. Please note, I do not wish to pay anything additional to my Craftsy membership. Thank you.

    Calling this series of videos “14-Day Learn to Paint & Draw Series” is very deceptive. There is no practical instruction at all. It should be called “Listen to an artist talk about herself and discuss art as a concept”..

    With crazy schedules it would be helpful to have the time for each lesson printed along with the title. I have enjoyed the first two lessons.

    I need to refresh my drawing skills that haven’t been used for about 25 years.

    I hope this is a set of programs covering the practical approach to drawing and painting. Then is when a person is willing to spend real money in these times on programs that meet their interests.

    I was wondering if any one might have ideas or tips for me … I have drawn since I was a teenager but I have no depth perception and I don’t notice how wonky my drawing are until after I’m finished I try to draw realisticly but if I draw a child they end up looking like a teenager etc I use to enjoy drawing but it gets so frustrating when things don’t turn out how I want/need them to be now my vision is slowly going but I’m not ready to give up drawing yet so I’d welcome any input please and thank you
