Welcome to The Drawing Source, an instructional website dedicated to helping you learn to express yourself visually through drawing! On this site you will find step by step drawing tutorials, exercises, lectures and inspiration.
I'm Marina Fridman, and I've had the pleasure and good fortune of drawing since before I can remember. My artwork is now exhibited and collected across the US and Canada, and I am thrilled to be a two-time recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant.
When I decided to become a visual artist, I craved an education that would immerse me in classical drawing and painting. My pursuit led me to study in three cities in two countries, attend three universities, three private art schools, and countless workshops and classes, all within five years.
And that was just been the beginning! At every stage of my education it has been thrilling to become aware of how much I have yet to learn, and how much there is to discover in the infinitely vast realm of drawing. I feel fortunate to have been able to pursue the education that I desired, and hope to make drawing education more accessible to those for whom it may be difficult to find, but who love drawing as much as I do.
Becoming fluent in the visual language of drawing is a life-long process. I would like to share with you what I have learned so far in my journey, and hopefully encourage you in yours.
