Just a quick announcement about my online teaching: All of my current nature journaling classes are now available as a one-time purchase on my website. Each course has around 1.5 hours of video demonstrations, and features one or more practical sketching projects so you can practice what you’ve just learnt and will walk away with a result.
If you’ve been hesitant to sign up to Skillshare because of the subscription, this is a great time to take one of my classes and own the videos forever. I’m offering the classes for a special introductory price that’s 20% off the regular price. The introductory price will only be available until Friday (August 23th). I aim to keep my classes affordable for everyone, and with a lot of practical tips and sketching projects for you to work on.
There is also a private comment area for all of the classes where you can post your work, and I’m looking forward to seeing your sketchbook pages!
Here’s an overview on the available classes:
