Realistic Pencil Drawing – Learn How to Draw

If you know the methods of pencil techniques and which tools and artist supplies to buy, I believe you can learn to draw. From an early age I have been fascinated with realistic drawing. My drawings are known to be true to life.  I am a self-taught artist and learned how to draw on my own.

I created this website so I can help others to learn how to draw too. I began laying out drawing tutorials for in-class and online that were easy and step-by-step. As a Pencil Realist Artist, I have taught hundreds of adults & children how to draw. I have taught drawing classes in portraits, wildlife, & pets through Loyalist College in Ontario, Canada.

I have also designed Canada’s first online drawing courses. These classes are offered through eight Ontario Community Colleges in both pencil & colored pencils.  I also offer children art lessons in Drawing Animals through Loyalist College and conduct private lessons in my home. If you would like to know more about drawing tips, techniques and tutorials please subscribe to my newsletter and check out my blog and facebook posts. If you would like to learn how to draw with one of my drawing online classes with graphite pencil or colored pencil.
