Sketchbook Confidence - Fearless drawing with Helen Hallows



This is a short, accessible workshop to liberate your inner artist. It introduces you to ways of looking and drawing to free up your drawing style and get you through creative block. This course is studio based - you will be invited to draw from a bunch of flowers or nature's treasures. The lessons can be applied to anything you want to draw. You'll finish the course with ways of working to get you drawing and into your creative flow.

What's included in the price?

In this online class I will show you how I draw in a loose and experimental way. I want the process of drawing to be a way of getting to know my subject, of working out shape, line. I draw in an intuitive and playful way - engaging my brain to coordinate with my hand and I. Whilst I am busy I can't let the negative chatter start!! You will end the course with drawings that are looser, bolder and experimental. You'll also have bust through creative block and have the confidence to draw - your way.

Hello! I am Helen. Over the time of my creative work I realised I take great enjoyment from processing ideas in sketchbooks, gathering and using sketchbooks as starting points for future projects. I can help you get past the fear of the white page. I can help you fall in love with creative process. I can help you stop being obsessed with the end point of art and find a step by step way to creative flow. Each workshop covers a part of what I do - making sketchbooks, drawing with confidence, printing pattern - all inspired by the wonders of nature. I want you to come away from a class feeling empowered and excited about the potential of your creativity.
