This online drawing class teaches you how to use all your art supply stash! Supplies Me is perfect for you if you already enjoy drawing and would like to extend yourself into art journaling.
This workshop owes its huge popularity to the word-of-mouth recommendations from my students.
But I am not collecting them for the sake of it or creating an Art Supply museum. I use my supplies. In this workshop I will get you not only organising and using your stash fully, but truly understanding the potential of your tools.
The primary way I get you motivated and inspired to get arty is the program of intensive (not scary!) drawing lessons and tips to kick start your creativity into high gear!
So as you are experimenting with your art supplies in different ways, you will also be learning:
Joy, Journals and Gesso!
Let’s start with what you have on your desk right now.
These simple sticks are incredibly versatile and it’s time to unlock your pencils’ potential!
There is something magic about paint…it just feels so nice to use!
Lovely, flowy and sprayable messy ink!
I did my fashion illustration training in Paris and markers were my weapon of choice. I have adored them ever since…let me show you a few tricks!
Transparent, vibrant and unpredictable…the three qualities I love most about watercolours!
Soft, squishy and tactile…its time to get your hands a little dirty!
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 talk you through each of the art supplies, what they do and show you how to use them through a variety of drawing projects and exercises.
The videos are clear, fun , high quality and around 7 to 20 minutes each.
Videos will be typically between 6 and 15 minutes long each. Sometimes I will split an involved lesson over a few short videos. Intense creative nuggets!
I believe it’s important for you to share your artwork as it increases your confidence, so I will ask you to upload your drawings and experiments into our private forum on Facebook. It may be nerve-wracking the first time you do it, but trust that you and your creative soul will benefit exponentially by being courageous and sharing your work!
Full instructions are on the site if this is your first online class experience. You are in safe hands!
Let me just emphasise that you don’t need all the art supplies in the universe to complete your assignments! You can use whatever art tools you have. You will learn new ways of using what you do have, and be able to pinpoint what you may like to add to your creative life in the future without expensive trial and error.
I totally hoard art supplies but sometimes they lay barely used. You have really got me reaching into that art bag of mine and bringing out pens, pencils and paints like they were new.
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your videos and all the wonderful feedback you and the other students gave me. Can’t thank you enough.
This classroom is such a hub of activity - its impossible to comment on all the posts but I have read most …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!
