I truly believe that drawing makes my life richer.

It’s also the basis of good painting, so that’s handy from an art point of view.

So let me introduce you to Shiny Happy Drawing.

It’s 6 weeks of step-by-step drawing instruction, complete with videos and photo stories, printable pdfs and more.

Not only will you learn how to draw, you’ll learn how to make drawing a part of your day to day life.

We’ll be taking off on Sunday 1 July, 2018, with new lessons released each Sunday for 6 weeks.

The purpose of this online course is to challenge, guide and inspire you to draw more and often. It is suitable for artists of all levels, but beginners are especially welcome.

Once you’re in you’ll have ‘forever access’ to the course and videos. We’ll be using a private Facebook group for show and tell, feedback and mentoring.

I might even try that ‘Facebook Live’ thing all the cool kids are doing!


I’m recommending that you start with a large scrap book or two (splurge on the ones with the bright white 100gsm pages – they’ll be a dollar or two!), a couple of pencils (maybe a 2B and a 6B) and a ballpoint pen. Of course I’ll demonstrate with more things (and you’ve probably got more drawing tools in your house right now), but it’s all optional.


Shiny Happy Drawing costs $99 including GST.
