About

Created with popular YouTube artist Shayda Campbell, this course shows you how to draw with easy-to-follow videos. You watch and follow her example. Find your style, express yourself on paper and learn to draw with confidence.

This course is for everyone who wants to be more creative, no matter their skill level. You’ll get to know different art techniques such as contour drawing, shading, and adding depth and perspective. Then you’ll move on to creating a floral illustration, which is Shayda’s top passion, before drawing everyday objects and learning to make original cards and journal pages.

Drawing is therapeutic, a fantastic mindfulness exercise and a fun way to relax. Whether you’re looking for a satisfying hobby or want to sell your art work, this course will help unleash the artist that lies within us all.
