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!

Getting Started

Draw the Outline of the Rose

Begin by learning how to draw some basic shapes for the petals and then completing the outline for the middle petals and outer petals.

Shade the Left Petals

Next, see how to shade the top left petal, middle left petal, and lower left petal.

Shade the Middle Petals

Then, discover how to shade the curved petal under the middle, the large petal in the middle, the next two overlapping petals, and the small petals near the stigma.

Shade the Right Petals

After that, draw along with me as I shade the top three right petals, the middle right petal, and the two lower right petals.

Finish the Drawing of the Rose

Finish up by looking for areas to make darker tones and erasing stray marks around the rose.
