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.

Reviewed by Carol S. on 9/14/2022
Drawing for Beginners” was an engaging opportunity to get back into drawing. The instructor (Zach Seeger) was adept with the technology and made the experience seamless. He was responsive outside of class too. The pace was manageable, and many upsides to online drawing instruction! I thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the privacy of my own home experimenting with different media and styles. Highly recommend!
