Welcome!

The workshops listed here are informal and fun. Most are ideal for beginners and for anyone lacking confidence to sketch (if you think you can't draw think again...!)

In these workshops you'll learn many basic skills and a range of techniques - and before long you'll have the confidence to sketch wherever and whenever you please.

I prefer to sketch on location, inside or outside - and discovering new places through the eyes of a sketcher means you'll see the world in a whole new light.

Each class is carefully designed according to the location and participants in the group, and can be taught in English and/or French. No class is ever the same!

If you have any questions or would like to know more, please just send me an email!
