The Evolve Home Study System for Artistic Mastery

Every student in the Evolve program goes through the same process and gets the same results.
It doesn't matter if you have been drawing for years, or if this is the first real program you are taking. 
If your goal is to create artwork that inspires those around you, we will show you how to get there.

Block 1

Values in Charcoal & Proportional Drawing

In the first block you will learn the two components all drawings are made of; values and edges. Your hands will begin mastering the soft touch required to create realistic art. The last part of this block will show you how to draw anything you see with razor sharp accuracy.

End of Month 1
End of Block 1

Block 2

Grayscale Oil Painting

In the second block you will continue to refine your skills and begin your first oil paintings to take what you've learned in Block 1 with charcoal to the next level. We have partnered with and are endorsed by the world’s oldest and best oil paint manufacturer, Old Holland, to bring you custom paint mixed specifically for Evolve students.

What Current Evolve Students are Saying

Peggy

USA

I'm currently finishing block 1 and I would easily pay ten times the amount.  This course is amazing. 

I went from stick figures to a full portrait in less than a year. 

Jevin

The system isn't magic. What you're joining is a well thought out, meticulously planned program that emphasizes on deliberate practice. That means every time you take a lesson and do an assignment there is a clear goal, with each step bringing you closer to being able to draw and paint photo realistic pieces. The program funnels your hard work into accelerated results. So if you're looking for a program that rewards every hour you put in and you've always wanted to draw and paint photo-realistic pieces, there isn't anything else out there like this!

Michael

USA

I appreciate the thoughtfulness Kevin puts into the teaching as it really makes the concepts easy to grasp. His comments have really resonated with me.

Janette

USA

There is no way I could be doing this well without your course. I love it and it is a lifesaver for me. I can’t believe I hesitated to sign up for it at first, but it seemed too good to be true. I would never push myself this hard alone and I love the accountability that this course offers. You said in your welcome video that your students were like a family. I feel it, thank you.

Suzanne

USA

I've learned more in the past year with Evolve, than I have in 9 years of studio education.

1-on-1 Support, Feedback and Live Video Sessions

Never feel alone on your artistic journey.


Your experience with Evolve will be as close to the in-studio experience as possible, meaning you will interact 1-on-1 with instructors who will look over your work at each step.  Feedback is given twice a day, Monday to Friday, making this the fastest home-study art program ever created.


You will have the opportunity to interact with the other students during several weekly live sessions to facilitate different time zones as well as speak directly with Kevin.  

You Control the Speed of the Course

Evolve is designed to work with your schedule, and you can take as long (or as short) as you want.

The suggested pace for completing the program is five hours per week, which includes both watching the instruction and doing the exercises.

At this pace, the entire foundation program can be easily managed in less than one year, and you will have all the skills necessary to create paintings like you see on this page. 


​You will always have access to the video instruction and if you need to take an extended break - that's no problem.  You can pick up right where you left off at any time.
