Develop your signature style for drawing in pencil, ink charcoal  and wash with illustrator Shannon Dwyer in this new short course.

Through a series of guided lessons and fun, practical exercises, students will learn techniques for illustrating a range of subjects. Learn how to draw realistic animals, portray textures, bring depth and shape, and depict emotions and motion using different techniques. Drawing inspiration from reference images, videos, and the diverse styles of a variety of artists, students will hone their drawing skills to develop their own signature style and creative flair! 

The course will focus mostly on drawing and sketching with pencil, with the option to experiment with different mediums such as ink, charcoals and paints as the student’s body of work grows. Shannon will do demonstrations and provide a range of tips and tricks to help you improve your hand-eye coordination and methods to keep your initial sketches loose. Students will receive individual feedback throughout the classes, learning to enjoy the journey of the drawing process because this is where the essence of your subject is captured - injecting your unique artistic flair before adding in the finishing details of the chosen subject.

This is a fun and relaxed class where you can utilise Shannon’s love and experience in wildlife drawing and illustration, to explore, grow and gain the skills and confidence to depict a range of wildlife expressively and produce one or a series of sketches, drawings and illustrations on paper, as well as a whole new range of practical drawing skills.  

What to expect

Suitable for all skill levels, the course provides a fun and relaxed environment to explore the following:

  • Drawing warm-up exercises 
  • Basic perspective. Understanding proportion and distinctive features

  • Developing compositions and a range of subject matter within the image-making process
  • Learn to embrace happy accidents
  • Work across a variety of subject matter
  • Practical exercises focusing on gesture drawing and capturing movement

What will you achieve?

Is this course right for me?

Course testimonials:

  • The class was very relaxing and 2.5 hours flew by every evening! Shannon got us to push our boundaries a bit in techniques we used to capture animals and not fear loosening up. Very much enjoyed learning new ways to sketch and ink animals, thank you so much for running this :)
