Alexander Ryzhkin

Life Drawing Academy tutor

"The know-how of figurative drawing will let an artist become comfortable with depicting portraits and figures, become more creative by transforming proportions, changing models' poses when drawing from imagination, and expressing emotions in portraits. This level of skills frees an artist to create whatever he wants in the way he intends."

Alexander - Life Drawing Academy

What our students say

"I have been an art student of Vladimir London and Natalie Richy for a few years now. It was one of the best decisions I ever made to take their personal coaching. I have learned so much about figurative drawing in such a short time, which saved me tens of thousands of dollars and years of my life. Thank you!"
Alex Brown
"I have known Vladimir and Natalie from the time I took their Anatomy Master Class. When I found out that the new art course, Life Drawing Academy, was coming, I was one of the first to get in. This course exceeds anything I have seen. I can tell you that in every video lesson they teach more about life drawing than I ever got from my entire art college experience. This Academy rocks!"
Richard M.
"I joined the academy a while back. I tell you, there is not a better place in the whole world to learn how to draw. The most wonderful thing that happened to me was having a wonderful teacher, Vladimir. I have been with him for a long time, and he keeps reminding me that I am doing great, don't hurry. He won't leave me. I don't have anything to worry about! He has taught me so much already. So, a very grateful thank you to Mr. London."
Annette Smith
"Thank you so much for all your hard work and help! You are always there when I need some advice or have a new painting and want honest feedback. Your support is simply invaluable. I know that I can rely on the Life Drawing Academy tutors at any time, and this makes me feel very special. I watch video lessons over and over again, and every time, there are new things to learn. I am proud to be a member of this academy."
Sue G.
