Learn the fundamental skills needed to draw everything! Drawing isn’t as complicated as you think… with a little coaching on how to look with an ‘artist’s eye’ just about everything around you can become subject matter for amazing drawings and the foundation for great paintings. It’s all about learning to see things differently. In the creative environment of CJ’s studio you can hone your skills and learn new ones that will demystify all those ‘tricky bits’.

Whether you are a complete beginner or more advanced these fun and informative sessions let you discover (or re-discover) the joy of drawing. Sessions are offered in a single session or ‘blocks’ of four sessions that allow lots flexibility and one-to-one quality instruction with CJ. Start anytime, pay-as-you-go in this open studio concept that lets you focus on particular areas where you need to build your skills such as shading, perspective, proportioning, etc. In only a few sessions you will see a noticeable improvement in your drawing abilities and begin looking at the world around you in a whole new way ...
