About This Class

As an illustrator I feel drawing is a vital aspect of my career, as it forms the basis of all my artworks and designs. I cultivate this skill almost daily by drawing for pleasure or setting myself a time limit when drawing to a brief. It may sound odd but committing to sketch in 3 minute bursts takes away some of the pressure and overwhelm associated with producing drawings, because it becomes a FUN exercise.

This will be an easy to project to complete as this class does not require a Mac or knowledge of the latest design programs, just pen and paper ! This focused approach will help students of varying levels, particularly those who may struggle to get started with drawing, as I'm certain you will improve with each practice. Skill in drawing is such a great asset to have whether you are a graphic designer or crafter.

Thank you for a great class! I had lots of fun. I will definitely keep doing this from now on on a daily basis.
Doing a three minute drawing is a great idea for practice. Thank you for the tutorial. I never would have thought of it.
