Hi, I’m Jack.
I am a self-taught artist and the creator of the Let's Draw Today Club!
My experience as a first-grade teacher has taught me the value of breaking big concepts down into small, learnable steps. That is the same approach I bring to my drawing tutorials.
Whether you are a beginner or you have a bit more drawing experience, it is my goal to make helpful, step-by-step drawing tutorial videos and courses that will allow you to easily follow along, create beautiful drawings, and build your confidence in your skills and abilities to draw things you never thought you could draw before.
I look forward to sharing my passion for drawing with you here in the Let's Draw Today Club!
