About This Class

Join illustrator Kate Bingaman-Burt for a 50-minute class on drawing collections. Fun lessons take you inside her favorite collections, iconic simple line style, and approach for grouping objects that tell a larger story. Pros and explorers alike will love her energy, creative prompts, and drawing a collection of their own!

Throughout the class, Kate illustrates two different collections that are important to her. Everything starts with drawing, then moves into coloring, adding text, and digitizing. Friendly, short lessons dive into the gritty details of simple line illustration while also sharing insights on concept development.

This class is great for both the experienced illustrator searching for a fun exercise and someone just starting out who wants to explore illustration styles. You'll come away with a polished digital illustration you can share and the knowledge of how a collection — which you may never have known you had — can tell an amazing story through a well-executed drawing.
