I’m teaching online creative classes on illustration, watercolor, gouache and more via Skillshare. If you’re interested in learning from me, check out their platform – you can get two months for free when you sign up through my link and take hundreds of classes including mine. 🙂 It’s a really great way to connect with other creative students and learn from the best creative teachers out there.

Here’s what students say about my classes:

“I can’t begin to express how transformative I am finding this class and journal. The close observation and documentation of the amazing and beautiful natural world right under my nose reminds me of this quote from Marcel Proust which I’ve written in the front of my journal: “The real voyage of discovery exists not in seeing new landscapes but in having new eyes. ” It feels like this discovery of my connection to nature is like coming home. I feel a deep sense of awe and gratitude for this half acre plot of land I am privileged to co-habit with other living beings and creatures. This is a HUGE shift of perception for me – thank you!!”

“Julia is my favorite teacher on Skillshare. In every lesson I found very good tips on how to improve my drawing skills and not to feel so intimidated about drawing something from nature.”

Carla A.

“This was an inspiring course for any skill level. I have a Masters in fine arts and I watched it from start to finish with my four-year-old son with a very observant, scientific mind. We both were inspired, and it was a joy to share the experience. Julia’s classes are always informative and approachable. Her detailed coverage of materials is also very appreciated.”

Anna L.

“This was a gorgeous class about a beautiful topic. A variety of pages are created, demonstrating a range of subject matter and techniques in a gentle and calm tone but with plenty of detail. This isn’t a class to rush through, it’s one grab a nice warm drink and relax into. Whether you’re a beginner or someone looking to develop existing skills you’ll take something away from it.”
