We'll start by inventing options for the elements of sea, land and sky and then look at how to bring everything together in a final composition. You can choose to follow my two project examples or you are free to come up with your own unique designs. Some examples of what you could choose to draw include planets, space scenes, rivers and woodland scenes, seascapes, landscapes and mountain ranges.
You'll learn skills you can adapt to produce creative work that would be suitable for tattoo design, logos or illustrations including:

Who this course is for:
- Creative minded people of all artistic levels
Hi, I'm Emily, I'm an artist and an art teacher. After finishing a Masters of Art & Design I returned to the simple joy of putting pencil to paper and just drawing. Since then drawing has become my passion as both an expressive art form and an enjoyable and mindful practice. In 2017, after 7 years of teaching art at university level I started my own school, The Pencil Room, where I teach drawing and painting classes and workshops. From here I developed The Pencil Room Online, to share my classes in a suitable format for online learning.
My approach to teaching drawing is to give my students the skills to draw anything they choose, rather than teaching the steps to drawing just one type of subject. My focus is on changing the way you look at what you see so that you perceive it in a way that can be translated onto paper. Once you can do this, you can draw anything with time and practice.
I love the simplicity of drawing and I value doodling from the imagination as much as realistic drawing. Art doesn't need to be serious, it can be simple and playful. Making art can be fun, challenging and therapeutic and it can change the way you see the world.
