"How To Draw Everything" FREE online Class!

We're doing it again! Another Free online live class at SVS. This time we've upgraded our service to allow for up to 500 attendees. All you need to do to attend is click this link and register anytime before the class begins - you can even do it right now.

You can send this to anyone who you think might benefit from a beginning drawing course. We changed the time to 12:00 PM MST on Thursday Jan 30th to accommodate many of our students in Europe and elsewhere. We noticed that we had many people in some of our other classes that had to either stay up or wake up at 3:00 in the morning. So this one's for you Europe! If you're here in the states perhaps you can take a long lunch and tune in with us!

Jake Parker has designed this course for the student who is trying to develop better drawing skills or for the student who is just starting out and wants to develop good habits. It should last between 1.5 and 2 hours and all you need is a computer or mobile device to join us. Grab a sketchbook and draw along with us. If you can't make this class it will be available in our store on Friday.

Also - I've been asked about the difference between online schools like our SVS and attending an illustration or animation at a University or art school - I give my take in this video - I'd love to know what you think. One thing I forgot to mention in the video is that we have quite a few art teachers at art schools and Universities using our videos to enhance the learning experience. We aren't any better than those teachers but often teachers want their students to hear the same things from other teachers. I do the same thing when I'm at University - I often show videos from other artists to reinforce the principles I'm teaching.


  1. Thanks for the great "Learning to Draw Everything" mini course. It always helps to be reminded of what we are supposed to be thinking and doing. Jake did a good job of laying it all out and then showing us how to use all the information.

  2. Thank for this. I was late, so I wasn't able to attend the free classes, but the video was quite helpful, especially for those who are thinking about going to classes.

  3. Thank you Will, unfortunately I wasn't able to attend. Will you offer other classes in the future

    1. I'm sorry you couldn't make it - this happend to a lot of people. We probably won't repeat what we've done in a live class since we video record it and make it available in our store: . We will however be offering more free classes in the future - if you're not on our mailing list you can sign up on our facebook page:

    2. Thank you Will I did just that, plus ordered the down load of Learning to draw everything, its wonderful, looking forward to many more
