New to drawing? If you’ve never taken a drawing class before, our Beginner Drawing Class is the perfect way to start learning art foundations with fun, creative drawing projects on a regular basis! Learn how to draw from professional artists in small online classes and get personalised guidance on your artwork!

This live online art class is an easy and fun way for complete beginners to learn fundamental drawing techniques starting from age 9+. This drawing class is designed for students who are complete beginners to join in on the creativity and learn the basics!

Beginner Drawing is a live online art class that is weekly and ongoing throughout the year (4 class terms per year – Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer). Consistent practice is key to growth and  improvement, so most of our students enrol for a full term and continue learning with us for years. Our projects rarely repeat, so you can start anytime!

🤓 What to Expect in Class

Every week, your artist instructor will introduce a different subject, and we’ll practice new techniques together, step by step! Beginner Drawing uses dry mediums such as pencil, pencil crayons, pastels or markers. Art materials are flexible, and your instructor can provide guidance on other mediums you’re curious to try!

Most beginner drawing projects are completed in a single class, and students have the option to show their teacher artwork on camera for feedback / guidance throughout the lesson. During your 1 hour online art lesson, your instructor will demonstrate each step of the drawing process live, and support each individual with in-class check-ins and feedback.

Students may also submit their drawings to Google Classroom to get written feedback from their instructor – even in between classes! With virtual learning, students are able to keep drawing long after class ends — because sometimes you’re on a roll, and you can keep the creativity going!

Join in live within seconds, and attend from virtually anywhere!

📚 Curriculum / Learning Goals

Beginner Drawing is designed to complement Canadian school curriculum guidelines for grades 1 - 3, but it’s a great online art enrichment program for beginner artists of all ages!
