Have you always wanted to draw but been too afraid to try? Sketching is something that anyone can learn, it is simply a skill that improves with practice.

There are a few basic tips and techniques that we will guide you through, taking you to a level where you will be able to sketch anything around you.

During the class, we'll be using a combination of ink and watercolour, which means you can sketch anywhere, anytime, without setting up or packing away. You decide on how much time have for this unique skill that adapts to your lifestyle.

Hello!

When I discovered sketching a few years ago I never would have imagined how much joy it would bring into my life. It became a regular practice and I have been taking my little book and watercolours with me everywhere since.

Let me show you how sketching can provide a wonderful way to record places, moments and experiences - in your own personal style.

Here are some of the amazing benefits you will gain from sketching:

  • It provides an escape from stress and busy minds
  • It accesses the right part of the brain - releasing happy hormones to reduce anxiety and leaves a sense of well being
  • It allows new friendships to flourish (both online and in person)
  • It increases concentration and mental focus
  • It is light and portable – take it wherever you go
  • Perfect way to record memories and make a fabulous visual journal

Everyone can sketch!

In this introductory class I take you through all the basics. You will find out how to create a good sketch, as we discuss composition, line drawing, watercolour techniques and how to simplify busy urban scenes. By the end of the session you will have the skills and confidence to get started on developing your own practice.

No artistic talent is required. If you can write your name, you can sketch! We use ink pen only - no pencil - because every line is a "good" line. There is no judgement or "wrong" in sketching. We all have a different view of the world and it is the sketching process that creates the magic, rather producing a perfect a masterpiece!

I am passionate about how the sketch practice makes me feel and I created JustSketchNow as a response to friends, family and passers-by asking me to teach them what I do. I have been running classes both in person (small groups) and online for over 2 years.
