About This Class

Let’s be real here: Sketching is both an art and a science. In this class, Mary will help you get started with basic sketching techniques. First be sure to snag the DIY Kit that includes all the supplies you'll need here.

You’ll start by going over class materials and a few simple techniques. As you continue, she’ll break down the steps to sketch a few different types of natural florals and leaves. She’ll also talk through how to hold your pencil, how to create shadows and how to color in your sketch to create a 3D effect. By the end, you’ll be able to use these simple techniques to create a dramatic effect and a conversation-worthy custom art piece. Bonus! All of your friends will be totally jealous.

I love your style and method of drawing. I also like to use black pen on my drawings. I can't wait to try this out.

Very detailed class would love to learn more. Thank you very much.
Love the way you are encouraged to use the natural shape that your hands make to construct these. Really accessible and fun class. Only downside is that I now want to go and buy lots more Ciao markers :)
