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.

Simple and enjoyable :) would recommend!
This was a fun class. I did much better the second time I watched it. As an new-ish Arizona resident I thought I should be able to draw a reasonable representation of a cactus. Thanks Peggy for the great instruction!
Another great class from Peggy. She sure has a way of imparting knowledge that makes it fun. Thank you.

The Pigeon Letters | Lettering & Illustration

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). 

Today, I'm known prominently for hand lettering and my unique line illustrations. I'm thrilled to be sharing them with you!
