Question from Anonymous
Can anyone with no drawing talent take this course? And Where can you buy the supplies? Thanks
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there, yes this class is good for absolute beginners. The instructor will advise where you can buy the supplies in the first session.
Answer from Jann L. Verified Student
I think you need one-on-one classes. I took the 6week class with Mathew and about 10 other students. Very slow progress, mostly with charcoal. Everything black and white - drawing inanimate objects.

Question from joanna m.
Hello, I would like to learn illustration/drawing mostly figures easy pictures for a children's book I am writing. Do you think these classes would benefit me?
Answer from Christine C. Verified Student
No. This class focuses more on fine art type drawing (think still lifes of fruit and small objects) using pencil and charcoal. You won’t draw anything (or draw in styles) that would match a children’s book.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Joanna. The school would recommend the Intro to Illustration class.

There are several Drawing for Beginners classes at the 92nd St Y close to this date but they are not listed on the CourseHorse website. Would you be able to add them so that I may enroll through CourseHorse instead of directly? Thanks,
Answer from anonymous
Hi Seenu! The dates posted on this page is the same on what is on 92nd Street Y's schedule. If the date is no longer available here, it is possible that the class date is already full for CourseHorse. Hope this helps.

I learned a LOT and would definitely recommend it for someone eager to get their hands dirty (literally and figuratively) with drawing. I will say there's more of a learning by doing philosophy in this class (and less time teaching in any lecturing type of sense) but that's probably good for this sort of activity.

The instructor was lovely, she has a great passion for art but I felt she was too much of a perfectionist for a beginner class. I spent time making tiny changes to my drawings rather than focusing on completing the work. I don't think I completed a single drawing though it.
