4.4/5 Instructor Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★

When Tamas was a kid, he liked to draw, but unfortunately, there was no good art teacher around him at that time, so his life took another direction - he graduated as an IT engineer. But in his 30’s, Tamas' attention turned to art again. Science is a great thing to get to know the world, but art is another wonderful aspect of life. So she started to learn to draw on his own finding the best teachers and resources. Through creation, you can make connection to something greater than us as he realized later in the learning process. Tamas has decided to share these skills with people who'd like to learn. You don't need to be born for creating great artwork. Anyone can learn to draw. Have some fun with Tamas and become a more creative person.
