Quit saying “I can’t draw”, forever!
Let me help you end to this self-limiting belief once and for all.
In Draw Happy I break things down into manageable, memorable steps to get you drawing simple faces right away. I’ll start you down the path to accessing your innate drawing style (yes, you do have one!)
This is a mini-workshop with five impactful lessons. Think of it as a Creativity Pill that will send you off on an intense but fast moving adventure! I introduce you to ‘Art Journaling’, and start you on your drawing path. It’s fun and delightful!
This mini-workshop has been created specifically for adult women who would love to start drawing , and with confidence. If you already enjoy drawing, this class is not intended for you. Start with ’Supplies Me’ instead.
An Art journal is a space for you to unwind be your authentic artistic self. It can be light and happy or deep and meaningful – and everything in between. It’s a creative place for you to run free!
A big part of the drawing experience is finding the art supply that make you feel at ease and creative. No need for anything fancy, let’s start with what you have!
Doodling, scribbling, scrawling… it’s all drawing and an ideal place to restart your art journey.
I have some shortcuts for you that will have you drawing simple, expressive faces in minutes!
It’s all going to come together far more quickly and easily than you thought!
All sessions for the Self-guided study classes are up when you arrive. This means there’s no waiting for projects to be posted and you can take the course at whatever pace works for you.
You can revisit, rewatch, recharge and remind yourself of all the art supplies, all the drawing lessons, all the mixed media inspiration whenever you want.
You need never feel embarrassed about not ‘clicking’ with a new skill straightaway. It’s a terrible feeling when you feel left behind, or that you dont ‘get it’ and everyone else does in a learning situation!
But you will NEVER feel that way in my classroom because you can pause and rewind, and ask questions.
The classes are video based. I introduce you to Art Journaling, drawing supplies, what they do and show you how to use them to draw some ‘Draw Happy’ Faces through a variety of drawing projects and exercises.
Full instructions are on the site if this is your first online class experience. You are in safe hands!

“Our Dear Jane, you’re so translucent, your enthusiasm is contagious, every word that you speak or write shows us exactly who you are”
“Jane! I loved the videos!! You kept it FUN and that’s what drawing and art should be!!! Your keeping the videos fun relaxed me and made me feel like I can draw — and Draw Happy! Thank you for sharing so much of yourself and your work and your secrets! As a beginner (as in this is my very first drawing class!), this really gave me the inspiration and “confidence” I needed to know that with practice I too will be able to draw!”
“You have really got me reaching into that art bag of mine and bringing out pens, pencils and paints like they were new. Can you hear them all squealing with delight that they have my attention at last and have been freed to strut their stuff??” THANK YOU for stretching me and enabling me to justify my stash!! This classroom is such a hub of activity – and will continue to call back and visit often to feast my eyes on all the talent you have unleashed in your workshop.”
Let’s escape the crazy world and refocus energy on the beautiful things in life that are available to us right now. It’s time to reward yourself with creative confidence in your art supplies, loosen up and let your style out!
