A New Way of Learning to Draw Online

Are you trying to hone your artistic style? Do you want to build new skills and find a career in animation or art? Or are you a beginning artist looking for direction? Take your drawing skills to the next level with an innovative method called FORCE Drawing.

Created by successful production artist Michael Mattesi, the FORCE Drawing method was designed to make art more intuitive. Instead of simply trying to copy what you see, Mike will teach you to draw what you feel, too. You’ll be able to sketch an experience, not just a picture, and it won’t require hours of measurements and fine tracing.

Whether art school is not a possibility for you right now or you want to supplement your current course of study with our online drawing classes, FORCE Drawing can help you improve faster and achieve your dreams. Explore our different membership options and sign up today to get started!

"You are honestly the best out there, and I'm so glad I have you as a mentor. I wouldn't get the quality of education anywhere else, and the improvements I have made thanks to you in only 5 months of mentoring are insane. Whereas I believe most instructors just look at students' work and read off of a flowchart on what 99%-of-students-screw-up-most-of-the-time, and then just use that as way for students to improve, you actually truly look at what a student is struggling with and you point out exactly what they need to do. There was a time when I wanted to draw, but I never progressed. With you as a mentor, I actually managed to make progress - a lot of progress - something I thought would be impossible."

"Mike Mattesi's FORCE Drawing classes really prepared me for the drawing needs of the animation industry and helped give me the competitive edge to transition from a student to a professional. Today I'm a co-Executive Producer of Cartoon Network's acclaimed Shorts/Development Department and I've had the good fortune of having worked on several high profile shows such as Spongebob Squarepants and the Regular Show. If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend taking Mike's classes. "

"I want to give you a HUGE thanks to yesterday's lecture...it was really wonderful and the animators received a lot of benefit from it. I feel like you really taught us a lot of great techniques, and personally, I really got a sense of what I could do to help our poses read much stronger. I especially liked the discussions on force (AWESOME!) and watching you draw over our poses to see what your thought process was.  It was incredibly inspiring to see your work. I found myself often glancing over at your quick drawing and going "oh crap!" and then working harder to discover the lines I wanted. I really feel like the animators progressed quite a bit yesterday, even those of us who aren't the best at illustration. :) Oh, and just so you know...the animators were already asking when you'd be back for more. :)
 Thanks so much for putting so much thought and energy into the class, I really appreciate it!"
