About This Class

Join artist and illustrator, Ria Sharon for this 14-minute class that offers a unique approach to discovering your unique artistic voice. Ria guides you through a series of five simple exercises (in five video lessons) that help you identify and nurture your distinct style. All that is required is basic art supplies, 30 minutes a day, and an openness to the process.

This class is perfect for anyone who wants a little encouragement for their art practice, whether as a professional or just starting out. By the end, you’ll have a collection of work that can serve as a guidepost for where you want to go next with your art.

Follow Ria on Instagram and sign up for Secret Sketches, her free weekly behind-the-scenes/inspiration email.

Great class, great teacher.

Ria is a clear and competent teacher. Her tone is professional and encouraging. Her tips motivate just enough to see the student through the bite-sized lessons. I am not sure it lives up to the title, as there were not many tips for analysis of the finished projects or guidelines for further exploration, but the projects were useful in jumpstarting a person looking to plumb their own artistic depths. I would definitely take other classes from this teacher.
