9 weeks for Lazy Sketchers

This course will motivate your everyday sketching with no effort or fear of failure. It doesn’t matter if you have experience or if you have never sketched before. This course is for those who want to start a new hobby.

Sketchbooking is a very democratic and easy going approach to art. It is most important to be able to capture your feelings on the paper and express your emotions at this moment of your life. Sometimes a 5-minute sketch gives you more memories that a professional photo.

In this course you will learn many interesting and useful techniques. You will be introduced to traditional and non-traditional materials that may be used for sketching.

The process of learning will allow you to go from simple to complicated subjects comfortably. You will learn how to gain the confidence to sketch every day so you will be proud of your new hobby!

You don’t need any special skills to start your first sketchbook. You can do it in a cafe, in the park or while travelling. Botanical sketches and many other subjects are very popular with sketchers. The course will give you 200+ ideas to sketch.

This course designed for all ages and for all skills levels.
