Why I Started The School
I discovered early on that my true passion in life is teaching. When I decided that I wanted to pursue this full time, I put a plan into place and created The Silver Drawing Academy. I have enjoyed the process of witnessing my students grow over the years and succeed in the art industry. Academy students have gone on to start their own companies and get hired at animation studios.
Having reviewed hundreds of portfolios; I know that I can help lead artists in the right direction and give them the boost they need to break into the industry. My goal is to help build artists’ confidence and skills to prime them for a fulfilling art career and to be reminded of how fun it is to draw.
The Silver Drawing Academy is here to help with clear, practical instruction.
