I would recommend this course to everyone. Purnima explains everything thoroughly and guides you through the techniques in an easy to understand way. It is a fun way to learn both for beginners and those with a little more experience.

I joined this class as a complete beginner. As a complete novice drawing is quite a challenged. I am finding that I am gaining in confidence even if the task seems daunting. It is broken down and we are taken through the task step by step and I have managed to complete and managed to draw an apple in graphite pencil that looked like an apple and 3 dimensional image. I would highly recommend this course to anyone really wanting from the very basics onwards.

I think the course is excellent and being pared down into manageable pieces,it’s much easier to progress and learn different technique. I’ve already taken to try and draw a subject rather than trace from an image.
Looking forward to more lessons.

As a novice completely unable to draw anything realistic, Purnima has helped me achieve the impossible. Talking you through every stage carefully demonstrating each technique she has helped me make significant progress. I look forward to learning more in Purnima relaxed and enjoyable classes.

I have found this a very interesting course. Although some of the tasks look quite challenging Purnima breaks them into small achievable steps and the end results are impressive. It has been good exploring different media and papers . I feel much more confident now to tackle other pictures.
