A self-paced online drawing course that encourages you to explore and develop an exciting repertoire of new drawing techniques and offers gentle guidance to help you find your still point on the page.  “I love drawing, I just never manage to find the time to do it.” 

Sound familiar? 
The act of drawing, even for just ten minutes, often leaves feeling calmer and more centred, yet most days, taking that first step and picking up a pencil can feel like an impossible feat.  It would be so much easier if someone was there to just tell you to do it, right? 

Which is why I’ve created the A-Z of Mindful Drawing Techniques online course – it’s the helping hand we all need to get us on to the page, the encouraging voice that motivates you to have fun, explore and experiment with new drawing techniques. And you’ll learn more about the benefits of drawing which go far beyond the page – this course will help you develop and maintain a regular drawing practice that nourishes you from the inside out.

The A-Z of Mindful Drawing Techniques online course will help to renew your enthusiasm for drawing, reignite your creativity, inspire and motivate you to get on the page again and find your “still point in the turning world” (TS Eliot).

It’s ideal for:
  • Beginners who have been wanting to learn more about drawing for a while but need some encouragement to take that first step. ·      
  • People who are curious to learn and experience more of the wider benefits that a regular drawing practice can lead to such as improved levels of creative confidence and wellbeing.
  • More experienced drawers wanting to renew their passion for drawing that may have been dormant for a while, wish to expand their skills set and explore new techniques and give themselves permission to play on the page.

Make the most of the discounted introductory offer – save £20 when you sign up before 1st July 2021!  

And yes, you really can sign up even if you haven’t drawn for decades or your think you’re terrible at drawing.  There’s no pressure to produce or share good drawings just encouragement to explore, experiment, have fun and learn more about how to access that still point that comes when you’re purely focused on the process of drawing and don’t give a hoot about the outcome.

And yes, I know, it’s hard to make an investment in yourself, your creativity and your wellbeing.  Sometimes it helps to break it down: think of it like this – say you do a lesson a day for 30 days - each lesson will cost you less the price of a cup of coffee!  So for this small, daily investment you’ll gain a long term skill and a drawing practice that will nourish you from the inside out, and the benefits of which will go far beyond the page.
