Drawing Courses Online

The Renaissance Workshop teaches how to draw in the manner of the Renaissance Masters through online drawing courses which are taught live, in real time over Zoom. Classes begin with presentations on the history and process of drawing in the Renaissance and explain technique in detail. Live, in depth demonstrations through an overhead camera then teach you the Renaissance drawing process. Classes are fun, participatory and interactive, where you join a group of other curious and passionate people while you learn and develop your skill in this historical craft.

‘To watch Jonathan drawing in front of you is the best way to learn the Old Masters techniques – Watching a Verrocchio emerging from the hand of Jonathan is a joy to watch and the best way to learn. Jonathon is an inspirational teacher and shares his passion of the Old Masters paintings and drawing techniques but in such a wonderful and practical way that you learn and see how you can apply this to your own work. Jonathan inspires one to look, learn and apply the many drawing methods used by the great Old Masters.  The courses are not just about drawing but about art history taking us right up to todays contemporary artists.”
