SKETCHING AND WATERCOLOR: JOURNAL STYLE
$125.00 USD 6 week online class Perfect for beginners! or as a refresher course!
Classroom will open on October 1 and
the first lesson will be released Friday, October 6, 2017.
Be inspired to record your life, a special trip, or your daily adventures in a loose, quick journal style format. Jane who is known for her friendly, encouraging teaching style, will teach drawing and watercolors using a straight-forward, intuitive approach. You’ll draw what you see, capturing the details of everyday objects and the small details of life on watercolor pages. Everyone has their own drawing style, just like handwriting, and Jane will help you to see and then record what you see on paper. The class is geared for beginners, but all levels are welcome.
(Really, even if you haven’t drawn since 3rd grade, I can teach you!)
Jane will help you compose your journal pages, and show you a number of other creative ways to enhance your pages. Each week you'll receive an email with a link to new lesson, with a different subject or technique. The lessons are available 24/7 and you'll receive a downloadable step-by-step pdf to work from each week. There are videos and examples from Jane's sketchbook to support the lessons. Just like in a real classroom, you'll be able to see fellow students sketchbook pages and will be able to comment and praise their work and they'll be able to see your pages too (as long as you post them!). And you'll get honest and gentle critiques on all your work from Jane. (The step by step pdf lessons are yours to keep and the classroom will close 3 weeks after the last lesson is released.)
You'll receive the complete list of materials (with links and descriptions) when you sign up. Basically we'll be using 5x7 inch watercolor paper, watercolors, a watercolor brush (I recommend the Niji Waterbrush), and a permanent ink pen, pencil and eraser. Don't buy the stuff until you get the actual materials list.
