I offer drawing lessons online! Using Sketchbook and Hangouts Screen Share you and I can draw together.
We connect and have a free consultation, and set a date for the lesson. We’ll discuss what you’d like to learn, and I’ll prepare a lesson just for you. Have a group of interested people? We can do a workshop too!
For techy reasons I explain further down, you’ll need a computer, not a phone or tablet. I also recommend a drawing interface like the Wacom Intuos. I also like using a stylus on my laptop’s touchscreen. However you slice it, you’ll want a pen not a mouse.
Make sure you’ve set up Google Hangouts and it’s up to date. Familiarize yourself with the Screen Share feature. It will be our digital classroom, and allow us to see each other’s work. Unless you would like to invite others to join in, this is private and secure.
Make sure you have a digital drawing software that you are comfortable with. We will draw on the screen for each other to see. Setting up webcams to view and display physical drawing is complicated and troublesome. We don’t want to waste lesson time with that distraction.
The drawing platform you choose is up to you. As long as you can screen share it works for the purpose. I use Sketchbook from Autodesk. It’s free version is the best for ease of use and smooth workflow. It’s also what I’ll be using for our lessons. It’s interface is clean, with more room for drawing and far less for buttons.
Art and teaching are passions of mine. I’ll bring everything I can to the drawing table!
