The Fundamentals of Drawing

Learn the foundational skills and techniques needed to draw ANYTHING accurately!

This course is also available in The Art Academy.

Did you know anyone can learn how to draw realistically?

Yup! It's a skill that CAN be learned and not just a talent that you're born with.

Discover just how easy it is to draw once you understand a few simple principles of art and some practice.

In this course I'll teach you important lessons that aren't always talked about in typical school classrooms.

These lessons are specific to drawing accurately using traditional measuring techniques in combination with learning how to utilize the thought process on the right side of your brain.


This course is the prefect place to start for anyone looking to develop a strong foundation in drawing.

What You'll Learn

The Elements of Art

You will learn what they are, and how to apply five of the elements to your drawings.

Perspective Drawing

You'll learn how to use a vanishing point to make subjects appear to get smaller as they get further away. This is helpful when it comes to drawing buildings, roads, rooms, and railroad tracks.

Comparative Drawing

Is a drawing technique artists use to transfer the proportions of a subject from their reference to their drawing paper. Master this and you can draw anything accurately!

Portrait Drawing + the Human Figure

Here you'll learn to use portrait guidelines to draw any face in perfect proportion. You'll also learn the portions of the human figure, and how it differs from a child.

How to Design a Great Composition

You will learn the fundamentals of a good design and how to use them to make original art you can be proud of!

Learning these drawing fundamentals will prepare you for drawing anything you want no matter how complicated, and will give you a strong foundation for working in all other forms of art!


The only requirements for this course is a pencil, paper, and willingness to try!

What Students Have to Says:

"I loved your drawing class and appreciated your ability to explain how someone can draw when they learn to tap into the right side of their brain. Yours is the best explanation I have ever heard on the subject.

I have been drawing for some years, and I wish someone had pointed this out in the beginning for me. I think you're philosophy that anyone can learn to draw is right on.

This is a great drawing course for beginners, but as an experienced draftsman, it was a good refresher course for me. Your encouragements really meant a lot to me, since I moved to a place where there are not many opportunities for artists to meet and encourage each other. I'm excited to learn you will be creating an online group for artists to share what they are working one and encourage each other."

- Linda Anderson

"I love this course. I have been painting for a long time now. I haven't spent very much time drawing as much as I would like to. After going through Cancer, I have been focusing more on learning a variety of art. This led me to you. I wanted to learn how to watercolor, and expand my knowledge of how to create a better composition, and better art. Thank you for creating this course for all of us."

- Kristy Woodhouse

"Thank you Tracy, I really enjoyed this class and learned a lot! I am so excited to improve my drawings for my watercolor, and I can't wait to take the watercolor class. I highly recommend this class to anyone!"

Thanks again,

- Linda Goepper
