Would you like to discover your inner artist? Are you interested in learning a creative way to draw and paint? Would you enjoy becoming a part of a community of artists more than 750 members strong?
If so, take our free online course with Steve Aimone, author of the popular book, Expressive Drawing: A Practical Guide to Freeing the Artist Within.
In 2010, we began this project with six varied and wonderfully creative challenges, including drawing exercises, a game, instructional videos and a variety of materials to inspire you as you pursue your art.
Class members have uploaded nearly 800 drawings and paintings so far in our Expressive Drawing & Creativity Online Community group, where much of the information about the class lives. There, your virtual classmates are able to see — and thoughtfully critique — your work. Steve Aimone visits the community on a regular basis and comments on pieces that draw his attention.
The best part of this program is that you can take these virtual classes at any time — and devote as much time as you want to learning what expressive drawing is and how to do it.
In 2010, new classes were posted every two weeks. We found that our class members enjoyed spending more time on a challenge, so we're now posting a new one monthly, on the first Friday of each month.
To learn more about Expressive Drawing, watch this overview.
Now — let's get started! And bookmark this page to return for a new challenge each month in 2011.
