Following an animal theme, these three classes will take you through core drawing techniques like shading, mark making and creating tone with colour! The course is suitable for ages 6-106, so can be done by you, your child, or as a family.


For each video you'll need only a pencil, paper, sharpener and rubber! For the ram you'll also need a pen of any kind, and for the puffin you'll need some way to add colour; this can be pencil, watercolours, pastels, watercolour pencils or pens, or whatever you have at home!


This course includes:


  • Access to 3 online video classes. These are taught and filmed step-by-step exactly as they would be in the class. Students can access them at any time; however many times they want, and pause/ restart when necessary. Each class will teach students a new technique or medium, that can all be done from home, to build their core artistic skills.
  • Email/Phone Support, Advice & Feedback from our teachers, whenever needed.
  • Entry into our Amazing Ongoing Competition with new winners and prizes every 12 weeks!
