The courses have helped me to work on the most essential drawing skills. It has given me more focus and consistency. Being in the study group had made a huge difference in how I approach the drawing process and I am beginning to grasp many aspects which were beyond my reach before.

I just want to say thank you for truly teaching me how to draw the human figure - going from nothing to, well, something I'm pretty proud of!

The courses are very well thought out and provide practical, logical and useful approaches that are based on solid fundamentals. The material is very well communicated, and the feedback Kenzo and Marek provide is excellent, both insightful and encouraging. The wonderful Study Group community is welcoming, supportive and not at all intimidating. Most importantly the courses are inspiring and really motivate you to practice, whilst remaining empathetic to the doubts and difficulties that learning to draw sometimes creates.

I feel extremely lucky having found this group, especially with Kenzo and Marek putting so much energy and knowledge into it. It's like being in an art school, but it's actually laid back and fun. No divas or big egos, just happiness and sharing.

Currently I am nearly finished the Foundations course and have just started the Fundamentals course. In the Foundations course I found the simple methods to approach the drawing extremely powerful. The egg shape and 'underpants' analogy is terrific as is the 'squash and stretch' concept. The attachment point of the chest muscles to the biceps and the shoulder muscles coming overtop was an aha moment for me. To sum it up, the concepts are very simple but very powerful. Application of these is not necessarily easy, but with practice I feel I will progress.

I think the individual feedback is one of the most valued aspects of the study group. I've not seen it anywhere else. Well thought out and presented monthly projects/ clear project goals/ good personal feedback.

They are fantastic in providing structure to looking at a new topic for me, and I find the exercises to be the right mix of theoretical information to learn (e.g. a diagram of muscles) and actual figure drawing to apply to it.

I feel like I've learned more from this study group in the past year-ish than I have in the previous several years of trying to learn art! The very first assignment I posted was from the values lesson and I was happy to receive feedback from Kenzo. It was encouraging, and helped me target the areas I should focus on to improve.

Everything Kenzo teaches is so right to the point, for example: anatomy. I agree totally we don't need to know every bone like some YouTube instructors teach because I get intimidated by so much information even before starting any drawing. It took me some time to decide to try with LLD and ever since Oct. 2023, I have been in heaven (no joke). Most recent life stream I got hit again when I learned how to simplify values. If I am performing well in the class it's only because I am really registering everything and I look forward to more. I wish I had started with LLD earlier.

I really appreciate the step-by-step approach of your teaching, Kenzo. It gives me confidence that when I find the time to practice, I'm making the best use possible. I also appreciate very much your willingness to share your own struggles. That really helps to keep my own frequent discouragement and frustration at bay.

SEE WHAT'S COMING UP:

MAY & JUNE: CHARLIE PICKARD workshop

Guest artist Charlie Pickard will be teaching a workshop on charcoal technique, values and edges.

JUNE: VALUES

Values is one of the most important skills in figure drawing. If you can simplify and group values successfully, your drawings are very likely to succeed.

Join us as we work through this essential skill with a sequence of bitesize exercises!

Check out the transformation in Study Group member Carrie's drawings:

Carrie completed the Fresh Eyes Challenge in 2022 and since then went on to work with us in the Study Group. Carrie has been a pleasure to work with and her dedication to learning really shines through in her drawings – well done Carrie!

See Rogelio's transformation:

Rogelio was very new to drawing and did not have a background in the arts. Since going through the Life Drawing Simplified Course, Rogelio has remained a hard working and dedicated student whose work continues to go from strength to strength. Well done Rogelio!

I have done the foundation course and started the anatomy courses. The course introduce concepts which are then explained and practiced. This leads to a change in thinking - clearing some unhelpful ideas and bringning in more helpful ones. The practice is essential.

This site has been an awesome long-term learning resource to help me get into drawing. One of my fav aspects about the site is the long-term aspect or the study group. I feel that so many courses are advertised as short term “do this course and you’ll be able to draw like steve huston” (or whoever). But having LLD to come back to and chip away with has been great! (Also, im only just realising that learning to draw is a like long marathon…not a sprint)

It is completely flexible. Some months you may not be able to dedicate much time, and that’s fine. On the other hand, if you have plenty of time and energy, you can dive into the exercises more deeply. 

No this is also flexible – some people love to share their drawings and participate in the community discussions. Other people like to see other people’s drawings and see the conversation, but prefer not to actively participate themselves. Either way is fine.
