    Drawing Realistic Portraits from Photographs DVD Review by Flanders Family Homelife

    review by Flanders Family Homelife

    ”The course is simple and straight forward with only fifteen lessons — a little less than two hours total instruction time. Although the course is geared toward high schoolers, motivated students as young as 8-10 would also benefit.”

    ”This program is specifically designed to help children who want to draw portraits but never felt like they had the talent. Honestly, I feel like adults who want to draw would really enjoy this program too!”

    Real Drawing!

    I purchased this mostly for myself (an adult) as well as my daughter. She has been taking an unrealated dvd art class, and I realized that a certain amount of artistic "talents" are skills that are learned. I realized I could actually draw if I had some instruction! We were excited to start, but realized quickly that to get artist quality results, we needed quality supplies--certain types of pencils, blending pencils, certain types of paper etc. While these are not overly expensive, I did need to order them and wait for them to arrive as well. I think it will take more practice and time to achieve the results I want, but the instruction is there. It is a good product for someone who is motivated to learn.

    Worth every penny!

    We used this for a five week art class with children 8 to 14. The instruction is thorough and easy to follow. This was a winner with each child!

    Fantastic Drawing DVD!

    The Drawing Realistic Portraits from Photographs DVD is exceptional! I feel like a private art instructor has come to our home. The lessons systematically show you how to draw each feature and shows completing an entire portrait at the end. The instructor is patient, interesting, easy to follow, and an incredible artist. He shows exactly what tools are needed and how to use them. My children all felt empowered by this program to draw realistic portraits, especially my older ones. It is an amazing product for the price. I am so glad we got this program! I highly recommend it!
