About This Class

Are you looking for new creative ways to approach your drawing and designs?  Have you been trying to get back to the joy of drawing and just haven't found the spark you need to get that pencil to paper? 

In this class I will show you my techniques in using basic shapes to act as a framework and jumping off point to creating unique and fun designs.  We will use 4 basic shapes and I will walk you through creating 5 different designs within each shape.  You will end up with the techniques and inspiration to create numerous creative designs of your own. Then we will toss these shapes onto a page of paper to give us a framework to fill a page with designs and doodles.

What you need:

  • pencil
  • paper
  • eraser
  • pen
  • downloads I have provided

In addition I have provided you the downloads for the shapes I use as well as the linework I will be showing you in the videos.  I also have provided a framework of assorted shapes that you will be able to use to create a full page design.

I loved learning these techniques! I tried them out on my IPad as I was taking the class I drew the shapes on one layer and drew the designs on another. Then deleted the shapes. It was really interesting. I look forward to taking some of your other classes.
This is a great class. I love how it takes you away from thinking you have to be able to draw to be creative. It's fun and relaxing
A great class. Jane is a great teacher. She speaks from her experience and shares her talents to us. A great class for someone who is struggling to get back to drawing.

Illustrator, Designer and Hand Drawing Enthusiast

Working as a professional pattern designer, textile artist and illustrator over the last 20 years, I have enjoyed sharing my passion for creativity and encouraging others to explore creativity in all areas of their lives.

I enjoy finding ways to encourage and help people to use creativity for both relaxation and productivity and for just plain fun.  My goal is to design and share fun and creative, hand drawing exercises that prove just how simple it can be.  Most of my classes only require a pencil, paper and pen.

 I find there is nothing like the relaxing sensation of a pencil gliding across the paper making your ideas come to life. I love exploring all mediums and am always trying to push the boundaries in new methods of design, but no matter what, I always come back to pencil and paper.
