“You’ve opened my eyes and thought process to new possibilities and taught us that we can learn and develop skills – we can develop talent – we can draw!!! Thank you for this beautiful experience!”
“And, most valuable of all, have “me” insights to myself that I never had; and as a personal mastery trainer for over a decade, that says a lot.”
I first came across the seminal DRSB program almost a decade back when a friend passed me a copy of the book because I always lamented that I could craft but never draw. I finally joined Drawing Right’s workshop and I wish I had done so earlier! The workshop was clear, effective and efficient and while I still have some way to becoming the next Michelangelo, I am leaps and bounds more adept at drawing after the class. More than techniques, the class enabled me to broaden my artistic sight and discover new perspectives to the world around me that I have found applicable to my home, parenting and business. And, most valuable of all, have “me” insights to myself that I never had; and as a personal mastery trainer for over a decade, that says a lot.

“If I were to summarise this course in one word, it would be “miracle”!”
Although it was only a short 5 days, I felt that I’ve learnt so much. Every session was a journey of self discovery! We learnt to see things differently and once we are able to see, we are able to draw with greater accuracy, regardless of our skill level. I am really thankful for having the opportunity to attend this course and learn more about myself as well as to make friends.

“I’m glad I took this class and I would highly recommend it to people who would like to learn to draw.”
I really enjoyed this course and feel that I learned a lot and improved my drawing as a result. I found the theory very interesting and useful. The instructors, Nicola and Tricia, are excellent teachers who are patient, encouraging and full of great advice for using the theoretical techniques in practice. Finally, everything is done to make it easy to get going from supplying all the equipment needed to holding the lessons in an excellent, well-equipped studio. I’m glad I took this class and I would highly recommend it to people who would like to learn to draw.

“Taking this class is life-changing for me!”
Taking this class is life-changing for me! Feeling frustrated all this while thinking that I can’t draw has been replaced by “I can do this and do it well”. By starting with a line, a new perspective, a different light, and looking at both the big picture and defocusing. A valuable lesson for me. Thank you so much for teaching, guiding and encouraging me to draw and believing in me that I can do it!

“We now look around us with different eyes and it’s amazing to think all this happened in 5 short days.”
My husband, Hunter, and I went for the 5 day intensive DRSB workshop at the end of September. We had no idea what to expect from this course, and to be frank, I was terrified of putting pencil to paper and drawing anything save perhaps stick figure type illustrations. The course structure was well planned and content both informative and intuitive. Each day’s subject subconsciously teaches you a multitude of lessons, not only in drawing but also in seeing and perception.
We now look around us with different eyes and it’s amazing to think all this happened in 5 short days. Thank you to Nicola and Tricia for this wonderful course and your encouragement. Your experience and patience as teachers has truly opened our minds.

“This course has made my life as an individual, a parent and a colleague more enriching …the impact is big and lasting.
I failed or barely passed all my art lessons when young. My dad used to help me with most of my art homework. My husband, an art elective student, brought me to many art museums when we were staying in Paris. He thought me how to better appreciate the art pieces but did not try to teach me to draw. Even my kids know I cannot draw well. In short, my drawing sucks, maybe i should say used to. About ten years ago, I read that Richard Feynman learnt drawing only in adulthood and it was possible. It gave me some hope but i still wondered whether it was just Feynman. Then, i read Daniel Pink’s book recently. One could only imagine my excitement when my google search showed that the course he attended is also available in Singapore. I am glad that I followed my instincts, ‘abandoned’ my young kids on Saturday mornings and signed up for the course. For now, I think my left and right brain are more connected. My seeing is richer and what I draw actually resembles, at least somewhat, what I see. I found joy in seeing and drawing. What is probably more important is that I learnt to accept failure as discoveries. I reflected on my own experience as a child learning art and that was really an example of judging too early. The course is so rich and this is just one of the many reflections I have had the past five weeks. ‘Withhold judgement and you will make many more discoveries’. This course has made my life as an individual, a parent and a colleague more enriching …the impact is big and lasting.

“My favourite takeaway from the class is that, now, every single thing in the world looks more interesting.”
“I’m very happy to have attended this workshop. It’s life-changing!”
Nicola & Tricia are the art teachers I wished I had back in secondary school! I wished I met them earlier. I’ve always wanted to draw since young but my style was very manga-like. I gave up on drawing in my late teens. Attending this class inspired me all over again. Nicola & Tricia were patient and guiding! The class was informative yet very hands-on. Being able to draw is the best thing ever! It made my everyday life and travel trips a lot more interesting. Most importantly, it makes me slow down, and really observe and look at something. It’s almost like a wonderful meditative experience. I borrowed the book from the library before but reading is different from doing. I’m very happy to have attended this workshop. It’s life-changing! The instructors made all the difference too. All the best to these great ladies who gift us with the gift of seeing!
