I used to draw random things on random papers found at random times. "The Art of Sketching" was a wonderful course which actually gave me a direction and at the age of 49, I feel so proud of myself ')

My 13-year-old son also joined us in this course, and I have seen a good improvement in his sketching. Arslallah is such an amazing coach, with her superb professionalism and soft nature she took us through all the basic techniques of sketching. I seriously wish to continue and level-up in sketching.

I definitely recommend My Hobbies My Passion and specifically Arsallah for her courses. A must learn skill for all ages.

This course is the first ladder of my journey towards learning basics of painting. I never tried sketching and shading before this course. Arsallah our teacher taught us from basic to advance of how to compose a painting. And she gave me the confidence I always lack that I can compose My own master piece. She is the kind of teacher who always wants to see truly her students growing.
Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ibrahim

Arsallah is an amazing teacher and has helped me overcome my fears and made painting seem so easy. A huge plus for me is how patiently she deals with everyone in the class and doesn’t rush things. So glad I opted for this!
