A series inspired by nature

This new venture starting in 2023 is going to help us all appreciate our natural surroundings just a bit more! Classes in the “Drawing on Nature” call upon Mother Nature not just for inspiration – but to teach us what ‘realistic’ truly means as we pursue our artistic adventures.

Periodically more subjects will be added to this page, and in various collections of topics. Feel free to weigh in on the discussion at Artventure with what you’d like to learn; I’d love to know what the community wants to learn to draw or paint!

Animals and Fur series

In this “Drawing on Nature” series of courses, the first batch are animals – furry, young, and adorable!

A few features in these courses:

  1. Level 4 classes, expectation that students arrive with experience with markers
  2. Narrated 6.5 hours of lessons
  3. Real-time video! The time spent searching for markers is eliminated so times listed for each drawing are all-art.
  4. Copic color numbers are on-screen. Fine details added with a few colored pencils.
  5. Free conversion charts for Olo and Sketchmarker can be consulted for colors that are close
  6. Closed captioning
  7. Photo reference provided
  8. Sketches included, tracing is allowed

If you wish to learn all 10 animals, not only is there a hefty discount, but you’ll have a BONUS lesson: the bear cub, narrated, for a total of 11 drawings. (The bear is only available as part of the full course, not as a single lesson.)

Or choose your own adventure  and select animals below to add to your cart.

Drawing on Nature: Animals and Fur (complete course)

Draw all ten animals plus a bonus bear in this full course!


Choose Your Own Adventure from ten Animal And Fur lessons

Select the animals you’d like to learn to draw to create your own class! Each lesson is the same as the one in the “big” class; you’ll get the photos, sketches, and instruction. Just at a more affordable price with less intimidation of a huge class. 

Note: If you enjoy your first drawings and decide to purchase the full course, just email and I’ll refund your first two after you purchase the full set. Test drive a few to see how that goes!
