[CLASS LAUNCHED] Secrets tips & tricks to finding your voice as an artist


Third Skillshare class:

The current video is the intro for my second Skillshare class that is already live but I'm working on a third class!! :) Hopefully I'll  be able to get it done before the end of September - we'll see! 

My newest class will be building on my first two and explain in greater detail how you can expand your visual vocabulary in order to keep developing your voice as an artist. 

Here is the outline for my class, that I just finished writing. I'd love your input if you have any recommendations! :)

Class description

Whether you're a seasoned artist or someone who has just started drawing, we are all familiar with the feeling of fear. Of doubt. Of not knowing how to move forward. Of being scared that the result will be terrible. Of what that says about us. Of what that says about who you are as a creative person, and that maybe you're not as creative or unique as you thought. 

But you most definitely are. 

In this class, I'll tell you secrets, tips and tricks to help you on the path of finding your voice as an artist and keeping the negative self-talk at bay. IIn this class, I will teach you about one of the most important tools I use, something I call "the everything book". Together, we'll do a 3-step exercise to see how you can move from inspiration to finalized drawings — how to use what you know and do on a daily basis as the starting point for enriching and unleashing your creative life. 

Negative self-talk is so common and yet so destructive, because it sets up all these barriers within ourselves, building up walls before we've even walked onto the path ahead. The classes I teach focus on overcoming these inner hurdles and exploring the full potential of your inner creativity, which is a limitless pool of ideas and colors and lines and shapes. I want to teach you the same secrets, tips and tricks that have allowed me to unleash my creativity, so that you can learn to unleash yours. Like everything, it's a process, a step-by-step of moving forward, and then moving back, successes and setbacks. Those parts that we don't like, the failures and fear and self-doubt are actually indications that you are GOING SOMEWHERE and THAT is already such a success. :)

Class project

You will start creating your very own "Everything Book", a powerful tool to help you find your voice as an artist. I will be leading you through the process I use to create my illustrations, from finding your sources of inspiration, even if their not art-related or visual, to visually brainstorming, to  creating finalized drawings. This is a process you can use over and over again, with ever-renewing results. :)


UPDATE: My class is launched! You can sign up here.


Class description

Drawing is like reading - a skill that can be developed and honed; an activity that everyone can enjoy, even if you think you can't draw. By tapping into your intuitive side, and through 5 simple exercises, you will tap into your creativity, stretch your comfort zone and become more comfortable with drawing from your imagination.

If drawing is something you've always wanted to do, then this is the class for you. If you already have experience drawing but want to push yourself out of your comfort zone and tap into your creativity, this class is also for you!

In this class, you will learn several techniques to overcome fear and unleash your creativity - so that you fully experience the fun and freedom that comes with drawing from imagination.

Class project

Through 5 simple exercises, you will create drawings and put these concepts into practice by starting a sketchbook.   

Here are some examples of my work, which I've made using the techniques you will be applying in the class. 

This is called "Show me the way". 


This one is called " Light-years away, stars turn to dust".
