Drawing Courses

Since 1997 the Drawing Academy has been offering high quality drawing courses with a unique mix of influences from russian academic drawing and american animation. There are no prerequisites for applying to The Drawing Academy’s courses.

Under guidance of Artem Alexev, who holds a phd from the St. Petersburg Art and Industry Academy, The Drawing Academy has developed into the ideal place to learn the craft of classical drawing.

One-semester courses in classical drawing

The students attending this course will learn the basic principles within the subjects of life drawing, both fast and long-term drawing, and sketching. About 2/3 of the students at the Bachelor programmes at The Animation Workshop have attended the semester course at The Drawing Academy.
