Drawing Demystified. You Can Draw!


Yes, it's true! You can draw! Let me show you how to find your inner artist!

Okay so this is going to be a 4 part series of drawing classes that are going to cover drawing fundamentals. This will include not only information about drawing but about how to incorporate creativity into your life and to overcome the anxiety you might feel when faced with the dreaded 'blank page'.

I've recorded an intro video but I'm not sure I'm happy with it. I look pretty nervous and uncomfortable so I might reshoot it.

This is the information/script for my intro video:

Hi there!

My name is Kristy Boisvert and I’m an illustrator. Welcome to my studio!

I am super excited about a new series of classes that I’m working called Demystifying Drawing.

This is going to be a 4 part series that will cover not only the basics of drawing but about the benefits of allowing for creative space in your life and becoming comfortable with your own creative process.

We are going to start of simple, I promise.

There is a comment I get over and over again as an artist. People tell me all the time ‘I wish I could draw but I can’t even draw a stickman’

I want everyone out there to know that if you want to draw you can, it just takes some time and practice, it isn’t a magical power that is bestowed on those lucky few who get to be artists. Anyone who’s good at anything has spent time developing those skills, which is good news for those of you who wish you could draw because, guess what, you can draw! But, only if you put the work in.

So! I am going to help you make space for creativity in your life, I’ll talk about basic drawing supplies, I will give you tools and exercises to be able to get over the anxiety of that dreaded blank page, and finally I will give you some drawing exercises that will improve your precision and hand-eye coordination, both of which are vital skills when it comes to drawing.

If you want to bring more creativity into your life and start developing your skills in drawing this is the class for you. I promise to stick with you every step of the way and to make, we’re going to have so much fun!

I hope you enroll!

More to come! Promise!
