About This Class

Artist and illustrator, Ria Sharon guides you through a playful exploration of sketching as a tool to nurture your artistic practice. In this 36-minute class, Ria will show you her simple (and seemingly magical) techniques to make time and space in your everyday life for creativity. You will begin a sketchbook that you can continue to come back to for inspiration in the days and weeks to come.

This class is perfect for anyone who is hungry for a right-brained activity. No previous art experience is required, just 10 minutes a day and an openness to fun... and yes, to a little magic!

Follow Ria on Instagram and sign up for Secret Sketches, her free weekly behind-the-scenes/inspiration email.

I loved this class! Ria is so inspiring. She is really that kind of teacher everyone needs. Thank you very much.
Love, love, love this class! The videography of her lessons is beautiful, and I especially love her words of inspiration and bits of wisdom she includes based on her own experiences. Ria is encouraging and inspirational:) I watched the class all the way through first and plan to re-watch and do a lesson a day as Ria intends. Thanks so much, Ria!
Ria guides us sensitively and imaginatively past the blocks and excuses we use to stop ourselves from making art. She encourages a playful approach, sidestepping the self-critic with games and magic to liberate the wonderful childlike artist within. I loved this class. Thank you Ria.
