Third Thursdays – 21 March 2024


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, and paper and if you’re feeling fancy, something to add colours such as coloured pencils or paints. Nice, but not necessary. If you have a pencil and the back of an old envelope, you’re also good to go.

The theme for March is minimalist portraits. One of my favourite things to draw! Super easy and rewarding. I’ll show you how. I’ll show you how to get someone’s likeness in the easiest possible way, and you will impress your friends and family with your amazing portraits. These make great gifts, cards, and gift tags, or they can be your new party trick! I’ll also give you some product recommendations. Show you how to make cards easy peasy. And if you’re using Procreate, I’ll give you my printer recommendations. This is a really fun and accessible workshop; whether you have two left hands or you’re a professional artist, you’ll love it. 

It’s fun and easy, and you’ll learn something! No skills or experience are needed. All ages and levels are welcome.

This is not the boring traditional realistic drawing many of us had to endure in school. It’s illustration. It’s far more fun, creative and broad. Anything goes!

I have been teaching since 2019, and I’ve seen many people arrive at my workshops anxious, scared, and telling me how they shouldn’t be there and don’t have a creative bone in their body and can’t draw. Those same people leave my workshops happy, confident, and inspired with a piece of art they are proud of.  I put a lot of thought into all my classes, and I’ve designed exercises that help you break through your mental blocks and make them fun, easy and accessible to everyone. Like everything, illustration and creativity take time and practice, and you’re not going to become a professional illustrator after one one-hour class, BUT the most important thing is that you will see that you are capable of far more than you think. And you’ll have the creative confidence to keep practising, and with every pencil stroke, you’ll learn and improve. And just find the joy of being creative! Because once you get over the fear, it really is so much fun! 

And if you join every month, by the end of the year, you will see how much you’ve improved!

And if you’re lucky, Sir Henry will even make an appearance!

I hope to see you there!
