Tamar’s online Drawing For Beginners course has been excellent. Firstly, it’s great value for money. Not only do you get access to two hours of tuition videos each week for eight weeks but Tamar also sends you the complete range of materials before the course goes online. I think this is a lovely gesture that means all participants have access to the same great quality art materials. There are more expensive art courses available that do not provide any materials.
The weekly videos for the beginners course are brilliant. I feel like I’ve learned so much from Tamar’s clear and engaging way of explaining concepts of drawing, including really good warm-up exercises. I have been so surprised that in only eight weeks I’ve developed several methods of drawing using the various media made available in the starter kit. I couldn’t recommend this course enough and I’m already itching to access some more City Workshop Edinburgh courses however I’ll be revisiting the beginners videos until then as there’s so much more I will learn from doing this. If you’re looking to develop your knowledge, techniques and confidence in starting drawing I’d very highly recommend this course.
I would highly recommend Tamar’s “Drawing for Beginners” course. Having completed the course online I’ve learnt so much about drawing. Tamar explains how to put marks down on paper in a way that’s easy for a complete beginner like myself to understand. Not only I have gained knowledge on how to draw, the different techniques & mediums to use but Tamar has given me confidence in my ability to draw.
Thoroughly recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn to draw. Tamar is an excellent teacher who guides you in developing your drawing skills. Online classes are provided with all materials required so you don't need to live locally to take part in these classes. It's a very supportive environment which allows you to relax, be creative and learn a range of drawing skills.
Tamar's Drawing for Beginner's course has been a great way to develop skills in drawing in different media. She is constantly encouraging and supportive. Her tips for success have added to the enjoyment and I am already thinking about joining another one of her courses.
I loved the Drawing for Beginners class and was really surprised at what, with Tamar’s guidance and encouragement, I was able to achieve. Ignore the voice that tells you that you can’t draw and do this class. I look forward to future online classes with Tamar and, hopefully, some of my virtual Drawing for Beginners classmates.
