I know art-making makes me happy (as I type that, I remember the time I did a presentation about ‘making art’ and three of my friends came up to me at the end and told me that everytime I said that it sounded like ‘making out’ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคฃ – anyhoo, both are good).

All you need is something to draw with, and something to draw on.

I recommend starting with regular things, like sketching your keyring on your shopping list, or your earring on an opened envelope.

If you’d like more guidance check out my website and try a ‘Blue Wren’ drawing class, perhaps ‘Shiny Happy Sketching – in Quarantine’, and if you’re still loving it, ‘Shiny Happy Drawing’ is a workshop I’m still proud of after 3 years. It’ll REALLY get you drawing – and happy!

So I’d add just one word to Bob’s quote – I’d say we’re a SHINY happy bunch!

About Anna Battle

Iโ€™m an artist, guide, mother and a very handy Art Friend!ย 

My life’s mission is to share the joy of drawing and painting.

In 2011 I started offering in-studio guided Paint Alongs, and my first online course, 15 Flowers, went liveย in 2015.

In 2016 my book, Painting Party, was published (it’s still available on Amazon).

I now offer online Paint Alongs and workshops so that you can reconnect to the creativity inside you. Gift yourself the time to paint, and the guidance you need to improve your skills and your confidence.ย 

I invite you to join me and see the world through the eyes of an artist!

If not now, when?
