🔎 Virtual Class Details

Are you Interested in building your drawing skills with weekly classes? If you love to draw and want to learn more techniques that will help your art flourish, this program is designed for you! Drawing Foundations is a step-by-step virtual drawing class designed for youth to explore different drawing materials, techniques, and styles each week.


This live online art class is recommended for students who have some prior / basic art experience. While this class is designed for youth in grades 4+, teens and adults of all ages have enjoyed these classes! With small class sizes, students receive lessons from professional artists and get personalised guidance on their artwork.

🤓 What to Expect in Class

Most drawings will be completed in the hour-and-a-half long classes, but there may be two week projects. Students have the option of sharing their progress and check-in for live feedback. Students are also encouraged to share their finished drawings to Google Classroom to get written feedback from their instructor if they need additional time to finish their artwork after the live class.


This art foundations class will cover key learning goals like the elements and principles of art, creative thinking, and how to elevate your drawings from 2D sketches to 3D forms. The instructor will share references to keep each class fresh, fun, and fascinating.


Drawing Foundations is a live virtual 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!
