To anybody thats thinking about taking the pencil drawing course with Nolan and The Paint Basket.

Don't think, just do it!

After the course I couldn't believe that I was able to draw so well. Paint Basket really leaves nothing out of this course and the tutoring is the best I have ever experienced

I learnt so much is this drawing course. I had fast responses to any questions I had. I felt that Nolan was really interested in you learning and understanding the material. And I especially enjoyed it when Dennis was a quest teacher. The warmth that was generated by Nolan and Dennis made one feel so good about the course. It is such a joy to learn from people that have a sense of humour and really enjoy passing on their expertise. No sale pitch just wanting to help you learn....rare these days. Thank you

Learn How to Draw Step by Step Pencil Drawing Course Start

I have been drawing for several years mostly by using the grid method to resize small pictures. I have never taken drawing lessons before but I have watched drawing videos on line. But doing this course is giving me a solid foundation and is helping me to see mistakes I have made in the past and I can see how I can improve. I also find the forum feedback extremely motivating and very useful. Thank you Nolan and Dennis, you are great teachers. I find the way they presented each lesson was very down to earth and easy to follow.

This course has given me the confidence to keep on drawing. When I first started, I felt like my drawings were worse than a 3 y/o. After almost completing this course, I now see that, although I'm no Leonardo Da'Vinci, I can at least produce drawings that are recognizable and somewhat pleasing to look at. Also, I have noticed that I look at things differently. I have started seeing shadows and edges on everyday things and thinking they might be nice to draw.
