About This Class

Stippling is a fun and forgiving drawing technique that uses small dots to creates texture and dimension. Shading with this technique will help you achieve a better understanding of light and shadow.

At the beginning you may feel like stippling is really challenging and even overwhelming, but don't worry! I've prepared simple and easy-to-follow steps for this class :)

Everyone is welcome! All you need to take this class is a pen and a few sheets of paper. 

This class is perfect for beginners, but it's also useful for those who want to get better at stippling and shading. By the end of this class, you’ll have all the skills you need to incorporate stippling into your drawings and make beautiful art pieces!

You'll have access to useful tips and a printable practice worksheet. Besides, feel free to ask me anything, anytime. I'll be here to help you :)

Just click Enroll and let's get started!

Great explanation of this technique

This is a fun class with good explanations. I found this class on stippling as I was learning about hatching, but I think I'm much more of a stippler than a hatcher. Thanks for the simple exercises and examples!

Hey there :)

I'm Amanda and I currently work as a filmmaker in Brazil. I also work as a graphic designer and as a writer (as a freelancer, we do it all!).

I'm really passionate about drawing and I love to experiment. I believe through art we can learn more about ourselves, we can relate better to our environment and we can start to make our hearts and our surroundings better places.
