The Official FORCE Drawing Website

Learning to draw is the first and most important step to being an artist, and Michael Mattesi – creator of the FORCE Drawing method – wants to be your teacher. He has taught FORCE Drawing to thousands of artists at the top entertainment companies in the world and to individual artists at home. Explore our site to learn what drawing with FORCE is all about and get started with a membership or a one-on-one art mentorship!

What is FORCE Drawing?

Drawing is more than just copying lines onto a page. It’s about thinking and feeling and understanding your subject. The FORCE Drawing method helps you become a better artist by teaching you to empathize with the model and helping you to develop a more in-depth understanding of movement and function. Here at, you have the opportunity to learn to draw online without watching hours of artists taking measurements and sketching with a needlepoint-sized piece of pencil lead. Learn faster and create art that reflects function, beauty, drama, and emotion.

"There are many books dedicated to drawing the figure and the study of anatomy but Mike Mattesi stands alone in his challenge to draw with FORCES. This idea holds great potential for any artist willing to be moved by it. Mike shows us how to see and use this natural energy in our drawing."
