The course focusses on drawing, enjoying drawing, developing observation skills and using drawing to creatively reflect on and capture your life and the world about you.

Each workshop will include a fun warm up activity, a themed drawing session and ideas for using creative lettering. There'll be tons of inspiration, step by step guidance, demonstrations and plenty of time for you to create your own amazing journal pages, based on the themes and ideas each week, within a supportive and creative community.


Starting to see

Draw what you love! Start off drawing familiar and favourite objects. See how much more you notice when you draw them!

Week 2

Drawing your environment

Breaking it down!

You don’t always have to draw an entire scene, location or place to tell its story.

Week 3

maps &  mapping

Creative ways in to capturing a favourite walk, a journey, a memory or even your whole day in your journal!


people & pattern

 Drawing practice and play to help you fill your journal pages with friends, family and others!

What materials and sketchbooks or journals do I need?


For this art journaling course I encourage you to use what you have to hand at home. I have built up a collection of pens, pencils, crayons and inks over the years – and you may have too.

I've compiled a list of materials, as a guide, for you to download here 

Last but not least

I've been running these workshops in person since 2017 and have now carefully, and I hope creatively, adapted them as online workshops. I love running them and look forward to meeting you! 

Here's what participants at the live workshops have said about them...

Really enjoyable sessions. I like the warm-up activities and flow of the course content. I never thought I could draw so that has been an amazing experience. Very good, careful, slow explanations of things. Lots of ideas to follow up. Lots of encouragement. Thank you.

Fantastic, encouraging support. Very inspiring!

It encouraged me to start a sketchbook

Even though I was anxious about the drawing I have really liked this and hope to develop this – just wish we had more weeks!

Lots of really interesting activities  – I would like to do some more. I have so much more confidence and will take it further…..!!

Incredibly inspiring course covering a huge range of ideas and activities. Thank you.
