Supersonic Sponsor: Craftsy’s Free Online Figure Drawing Classes!

I recently got the chance to sit down and try out a few of Craftsy’s free online classes for myself and they really blew me away.  One of those is the exceptional Figure Drawing: An Essential Guide,” a FREE online class.

The class covers all the basics from blocking your drawing, gesture drawing, contour drawing, light and shadows and even creating custom paper among other things.

As a student years ago I had a great deal of trouble with art school and various art lessons but I found Craftsy’s approach to be so much more accessible than I could have imagined and I really am happy to be sharing it here with you.  I truly wish something like this had existed when I was learning art.  I feel that Craftsy is certainly an invaluable tool (the use of the lesson never expires by the way) for any aspiring artist or even professional artists who might be looking to brush up on a few skills.

Feel free to get started yourself by heading over to Craftsy and Register for the Free Figure Drawing Class!
