About This Class

Line drawing is an easy art form featuring illustrative, doodle-like designs. It's used widely among artists of many types with both fine lines and bold lines. This class is a follow up from my Botanical Line Drawing class featuring flowers and leaves (which is not needed to take this class, although you should because it's fun!), and goes over 20 types of cacti and succulents.

Art for Everyone !

Great class! I didn't realize there were so many varieties that were easy to draw!
I enjoyed this class - the different Cati were interesting and you broke down how to draw them very simply. Just FYI the snake plant - was very common house plant in this area but was called Mother in Law's tongue/

The Pigeon Letters | Lettering & Illustration


Hey hey! I'm Peggy. I'm native to the Pacific Northwest and I love all things creative. From a young age I was dipping everything I could into the arts. I've dabbled in quite an abundance of varieties, such as ballet, fire dancing, crafting, graphic design, traditional calligraphy, hand lettering, painting with acrylics and watercolors, illustrating, creative writing, jazz, you name it. If it's something involving being artistic, I've probably cycled through it a time or two (or 700).
