Classes and Workshops

Expand your Creativity

Let’s figure this out together.

From a place of absolute frustration, I began to teach myself how to draw. If you’re like me, you loved Art at school and got decent marks for it, but weren’t encouraged to take it further. I was stuck in “Proper Art” mode; unless I could draw something exactly as it was, to replicate a photograph, then it was unworthy!

Fast-forward a couple of decades….. I realised that I really could draw, but not how everyone else could. What was coming out was from pure imagination but also solely grounded in drawing muscle and practice.

This is why I devised the “Draw Like an Artist” course. I give it freely because everyone needs to know they can do this. This process has been tested on some willing guinea pigs, from 8 to 80 years old, and all are surprised and delighted with their outcomes.

It’s like nothing you’ve done before but deceptively easy to master.

I’ve structured my courses like a Semester of work. You start with the free class as a prerequisite, especially if you’re not confident in your drawing ability. Each class then builds on the previous one. If you are a bit more advanced, simply take the class that appeals to you. They are great as stand-alone classes too.

Not sure which class is right for you? Send me an email and we can mull it over.

Giovanna’s style of teaching clearly reflects her background as a High School teacher. She explains each step clearly with demonstration and checks in often. I love how each step informs the next so you end up with a developed (rather than a copied) style. I can’t wait to continue with this at home.
