Sketching With Susan

I have a range of short online courses all about boosting creativity and learning new sketching skills. Most of these courses are stand-alone and you can purchase the course for a one-off fee and work through the content in your own time. I also have a few FREE online courses to encourage everyone to get creative and have a go.

Sketching for Fun!

Welcome to the home of my online sketching courses. These fun and inspiring courses are all here to help you to boost your creativity and have a lot of fun in your sketchbooks.

I love sketching and it is the foundation of everything I do. I have tons of sketchbooks in my home studio that I use on a regular basis and through these fun courses with me you will understand how I use them and what for.

Each course explores a different aspect or approach to sketching, from practical stuff like Exploring Colour to the ever-helpful Build a Daily Sketching Habit.
