About this Live Session

Get into a creative flow with mindful drawing techniques from Top Teacher Mel Rye!

Join Mel in this interactive create-along session all about mindful drawing — Mel's go-to method for breaking creative block and enjoying creative flow. Alongside Mel, you'll learn how to create patterns inspired by the world around you and with an emphasis on being present and open. Mel's previous Live class on drawing to break creative block was a huge hit, and what better way to follow it up than with her tried-and-true mindful technique?

Creating alongside Mel, you will:

  • Learn about the importance of mindfulness in a creative practice
  • Draw a series of patterns inspired by the world around you
  • Have the opportunity to ask Mel questions not only about the class but about her work and career

Skillshare Premium Members are invited to join us on July 26th for a live online Zoom session with Mel Rye all about mindful patterns and creative flow. The session will run for approximately 60 minutesClick the “Remind Me” button above to register! 

Mel is an illustrator, artist and a qualified Art & Design teacher. She believes everyone is an artist, it's just a question of allowing yourself the freedom to explore without overthinking things.

She loves teaching, because she adores that lightbulb moment when something falls into place for someone - when there's a realisation that you CAN do this!

She believes we learn best when we're not really thinking too much and are excited about the thing we are creating, so she likes to create Skillshare classes which will show you how to make awesome class projects, teaching you a ton of skills along the way.

Throughout the session, you’ll be encouraged to work alongside Mel and ask questions. Feel free to add questions in advance of the event using the discussion forum below, or bring them live to the Zoom session. We look forward to seeing you soon!
