- It changed my life! Review by Sharon
In January 2013 and signed up for the Draw 101 Home Study Course, which came with a huge work book and 4 DVDs. Sandra's instruction was so crystal clear! She wrote like she was talking directly to me! She taught me STEP BY STEP how to draw like I knew what I was doing! Wow! Now I was able to meet Sandra on my laptop up close and personal! Watching and learning from the book and the DVDs was simply amazing. Her process of teaching me made me rethink the entire drawing process. Being able to actually see mistakes that are often made and how the brain plays an intregal part in seeing what is actually there and getting it down on the paper. It's tricky! This comprehensive course gave me a foundation for my drawing lessons to build on. Because I work long hours at my job I worked on this course at night using a portable clip on light to illuminate my pages while my hubby snored right by my side. I loved seeing what I was learning materialize before my eyes. Within a couple of months I was able to draw the dog "Madison" you see on the cover of this book!! What an honor and surprise that Sandra Angelo used my artwork to show that truly ANYONE like me can learn to draw with the right instruction! It changed my life!

- IT WORKS Review by MMTHREE
This book was like a miracle. I couldn't draw a stick figure before I started working through the exercises, and within SIX WEEKS I had drawn a portrait of my cat that everyone thought was an actual photograph. I can't adequately convey the shock and disbelief that everyone expressed when they realized I drew it! Truthfully, I was shocked too! That was 5 years ago and I'm still drawing and loving it. Sandra makes drawing so easy and fun, and sets you up with all the right pencils, tools, papers, and techniques for success. If you thought you couldn't draw, buy this book and think again. It's never too late.

I have worked through more than half this book, and am loving what I am learning. It is doable! I am left handed and all thumbs, and I am doing it and happier than I have been in years!!!
If you dont draw at all and want to and are driven and serious about it this book will amaze you at how well the methods and techniques work. And there are surprises along the way you will learn about yourself and your drawing!
If you can, get the companion DVD, you meet Sandra and watch her demonstrate the techniques-it is so worth the extra!!!
