About This Class

Have you been trying to inspire yourself to draw more?  

Have you been looking for fun ways to improve your drawing skills?

Are you trying to spark your creativity? 

This class will give you inspiration in the form of simple, fun and creative exercises you can do anytime, anywhere with just a pen and paper.  I will show you 7 different ideas that will help you improve your skills and get you drawing everyday. Each lesson walks you through an exercise that will help you develop better hand and eye coordination, a steadier line, and will help you explore both positive and negative space and balance in a design.  These exercises are created so you will get different results every time you draw them and you will always be coming up with different designs. They are not only fun but when you are done they make great colouring pages.

Included are 5 worksheets to use while working through the lessons.
NOTE:  There are now 8 worksheets. I have added 3 more at your request.  There is now one worksheet for each exercise, plus the circle framework to work the exercises yourself from scratch.  

What you will need

  • Pen
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Compass and or Ruler - optional
