sketchbook delight online class

Alisa Burke


A class completely dedicated to sketching! By now you probably know that drawing/sketching is something that I am passionate about and I think every creative person- no matter the medium- MUST learn and work at consistently. The most basic you can get is to draw and it is the simplest (cheapest) and most pure process you can incorporate into your daily creative routine. For some reason it has always reminded me of running- you can take it anywhere, it is free, simple, requires lots of discipline, doesn't always feel good and the more time you spend doing it the better you get. Drawing and sketching has been with me my whole life, it has been a faithful companion that has challenged, comforted and brought me joy. But with the onslaught of technology, distraction that comes with life and the discipline that it takes, often it is difficult to be consistent. Now is your chance to carve out some time, learn the basics and discover the joy and delight of sketching!

Its time to get back to basics! Time to enjoy the simplicity, the growth and the delight that comes from drawing and sketching.  This five week online class will introduce you to keeping a sketchbook, finding the right tools for your process, learn how to sketch and draw with a variety of simple techniques, easy exercises that will help you to find your own unique sketching style, interviews and advice from a variety of artists who love to sketch, ways to find inspiration out in the world (and off the computer), realistic ways to carve out time to exercise your sketching muscle and so much more.

Important Note-

All of my classes have unlimited access- once you register you can create and access class content at any time and work at your own pace. Whenever I "release" a new class- I always structure it in a five week format. Many people who want to work in this format, as the lessons are posted each week, enjoy working at this pace but once the five weeks are up there is unlimited time to access everything.

I have found that some people prefer to work along with the five week format when I release the class while others will wait months until they have the time, money and the schedule to register for the class. Either way works- just know that once you are in- there is no deadline or pressure to create.
