There are untold benefits to exercises your vision and creativity by learning to draw and making art a part of your life.
However, like anything worth doing, the process can bring up a lot of resistance.
The most common story is that we want to learn a quick trick or two and then have a "perfect" drawing to show off to friends. But like music and dancing, it's the DOING of making art that is important. The process of curiosity, discovery, frustration, breakthrough, and triumph play on loop as we continue to improve and spiral our skillset upward.
Mastering this creative process will show up in other areas of your life as well. When we learn to innovate, work through resistance, and problem-solve in art, we get better at doing those things in other areas of our life as well.
Once you're in, Antonelli Art School is $39.99 a month, just under $10 bucks a week.
Ok, yes, the total value of the course library alone is over $400, and the value of the group to keep you accountable and inspired is priceless, but I want you to think of it this way:
You are promising to show up at least once a week to draw, and you've put down a $10 bet that you'll keep showing up for yourself and your creative practice. Even drawing just once a week with our live classes or course library consistently will set you on a course for mastery.
The real secret to learning to draw?
It's sticking with your practice in an engaged learning community. And the best way to do that? Find your people, and get to drawing! That's what we're all about- an exclusive group of budding artists learning and creating together, expressing it all on the canvas and learning to improve our techniques as we go.
