Do I need to be good at drawing to join?

The course starts really easy, no prior experience needed but the four larger portraits are a little harder and it helps if you have some drawing experience there. 

If you are completely new to art, I would recommend to check out my Sketchbook course which introduces you to different mediums and helps you when you first get started.

What my creatives say

What Materials Do I need? 

Part of the course is experimenting with different materials. You do not need to have all the materials that I use and feel free to try using other materials if you have these already. 

As a minimum I would recommend:

  • a HB sketch pencil, eraser and sharpener

  • a ballpoint pen 

  • drawing paper.

  • For the four large portraits I use colour pencils, watercolour paint and charcoals. 

    For the watercolour portrait I would recommend using watercolour paper as normal drawing paper usually damages easily when using with wet mediums. 

    You can find my favourite art materials in the FAQ

    If you would like to draw as part of a fun and inclusive group, why not check out the Makings & Musings Community. 

    In the community we draw and paint together twice a month, you will find art tutorials and lots of inspiration. 

    The community is perfect if you want to experiment with materials, if you are looking for a reason to make time for art and it is the perfect place to share your work in a safe non-judgemental environment!


    Hands on approach

    I love a no-nonsense approach to art as the best way to learn is by creating.

    we start with quick sketches and I invite you to draw along from the start. 


    My goal is to get you comfortable with drawing faces, as people are a never ending source of inspiration!  My hope is that you will carry on drawing people after you have completed this course and that I help you finding your own creative voice in the process. 

    How does it work?

    During the course you can see what I do as if you are looking over my shoulder. I explain each step I take and you can see exactly what movements I make. 

    If you sign up today you will immediately have access to the day one drawing plus all introduction video's. As I do not want to overwhelm you with video's you will get access to a new session every day after for 30 days. 

    Share your work

    after each session I ask you to share your artwork with me, if you do that in the course I am the only person who will see it and I can give feedback if you like.  

    You can also share your artwork in the discussion group where all course participants can see it. (This may sound scary but it's a great step towards sharing your artwork with the world eventually if that's something you want to do.)
