Third Thursday – 20 June – Draw your pet!


Sign up for my newsletter and join for FREE!

Every Third Thursday of the month, I offer a cheap and cheerful online creativity and illustration workshop. We’ll learn something different every time. We’ll cover topics such as floral illustration, meditation illustration, how to draw pet portraits, how to come up with ideas, how to create cute cards and gift tags or how to draw portraits.

It’s online, so you can join from anywhere. Please note that times are in SAST, and prices are in South African Rands. A replay will be sent out after the workshop, so if you can’t make it or there’s load-shedding, you can still enjoy the lesson.

Bring a pencil, eraser, pen, paper, and, if you’re feeling fancy, something to add colour, such as coloured pencils or paints. This is nice but not necessary. If you have a pencil and the back of an old envelope, you’re also good to go.

June’s theme is Pet illustration! Pets can join for free. Please lure them to your computer and hold them up to your video for me to see! I’m so excited to meet them. I’ll teach you how to capture their quirks with just a few lines. It’s easier than you think.

I’ve been a professional award-winning art director, illustrator and designer for the past 20 years. It is my day job to come up with fresh, original ideas and bring them to life.  When I started teaching in 2019, I developed a bunch of exercises and techniques to teach others what I know in a short timeframe and to make it fun. I know that the biggest obstacle to creative work is self-doubt. That is why my classrooms are judgement-free zones where the focus is on having fun because that is when you are able to create your best work and learn the most.

This workshop is beginner-friendly. You don’t need any special talents, skills or experience. You don’t need to be creative or artistic. I’ve designed exercises to help you overcome your fears and mental blocks and teach you how to think creatively, illustrate your ideas and find your very own style. Whether you’re an experienced artist looking to try something new or a complete newbie who hasn’t drawn a stick figure since pre-school, you’ll love this workshop.

My workshops are judgement-free zones where the focus is on having fun because that is when you are able to create your best work and learn the most.

I hope to see you there!
