About This Class

There is beauty in the everyday. In this class, you’ll learn how to pay close attention to things around you and let those things inspire you.

Join artist and illustrator Ojima Abalaka, for this fun and accessible creative class that'll help you look at your surroundings in a new way. During the class, you’ll also learn different ways of translating your ideas into illustrations in Photoshop to create images that you can share anywhere. 

All you need for the class is:

  • A pencil or pen
  • A sheet of paper
  • Simple coloring materials

A basic knowledge of photoshop can be helpful, but isn't required. The skills you’ll learn in this video will help you with coming up with ideas for illustrations. You’ll learn an easy way to get inspired. The skills you’ll learn are also helpful if you’re curious about your surroundings and you would like to put this into your work.

This class is for people who are just starting out in illustration and for people who are looking for new ways to create!
