Draw impressive portraits, with just graphite and ink, and detailed one on one guidance from Anya. You'll gain knowledge of proper placement of facial features with simple tips, shading techniques and experimenting with different mediums.

Whether you're already a competent drawer wanting to broaden your techniques and perspectives, and improve your craft, or someone whose pinnacle of drawing achievements are stick figures and basic shape outlines, Anya is sure to turn you into a better artist, while you have lots of fun and smiles on the way. Anya is patient and friendly and will ensure that you draw in a relaxed and encouraging environment - perfect for honing your drawing skills and unleashing your creativity.

Anya’s desire is to share her knowledge with aspiring young artists.

I am a production designer and illustrator based in Sydney. I studied fine arts in Melbourne which brought me into the world of storyboards and concept art for films. From there I was inspired to pursue a career in film work. I currently produce illustrations and storyboards for both film and advertising. Coming from a traditional art background, I value the importance of learning traditional techniques before experimenting with your own style. I specialize in portraiture and still life.

Lovely teacher - very patient with my toddler who unfortunately wouldn't let me actually draw anything.

Anya is wonderful! She is very patient. Patience with children is the most important! Our communication is also timely and smooth. She gave my son a very constructive opinion. My son is very happy to learn from her. I think the price is well worth it. I hope to have the opportunity to cooperate more!

I found this class really helpful. It helped me to realise why my current sketches weren’t really working. I left with a step-by-step guide and helpful techniques that I can use to practice and continue to improve.

I found Anya to be an excellent teacher, understanding my needs as she introduced me to PORTRAITURE. She started off showing me how she does portraits, explaining in detail every step of the way. Then I had to pick up my pencil and follow suite. With much guidance and support, I began to draw EYES. I have never been aware of the light falling on them, their correct proportion, and smaller details. Thanks for a great 2 hour lesson in my home.
