“The instructor speaks very clearly and the course is comprehensive. She has a knack for taking a complicated design and showing how it can be simplified, if you want it that way, or how to successfully build up a fairly complex scene. I love her enthusiasm and clear intent for the student to succeed.”

Learn to illustrate doors in Procreate with Symmetry.
Hey there, fellow artists and sketching enthusiasts! If you’re always on the lookout for new prompts and inspiration to fuel your love for illustration, then this class is tailor-made for you. Get ready to embark on a 7-day Urban Sketching Challenge that will take you on an adventure through art.
Why Should You Learn from Me?
A decade ago, I made the decision to build my creative career, and since then, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to work with amazing clients and be a part of fascinating projects. This has allowed me to explore the world, immerse myself in different cultures, and discover captivating locations. Along the way, I’ve come to believe that we all have an infinite number of creative ways within us. That’s why I’ve made it my mission to share everything I know, in the hope of awakening your creative genius.
What Will You Learn?
In this class, I’ll teach you a fun and easy way to create quick sketches and colorful scenes inspired by beautiful locations. We’ll dive into the art of urban sketching, where observation becomes the key. You’ll learn how to observe both from photo references and on-location, allowing you to find inspiration in your surroundings and create unique travel illustrations.
To kickstart your journey, we’ll be focusing on a fun project: illustrating doors. Drawing doors is a fantastic way to begin your urban sketching adventure because they offer a simpler subject compared to full house architecture, streets, and towns. It’s the perfect starting point to get your creative juices flowing!
While having basic knowledge of Procreate is helpful, it’s not necessary for this class. I’ll be your guide, walking you through the process step by step.
So, without further ado, let’s dive right into the world of urban sketching and start this exciting seven-day challenge together. I can’t wait to see you in class, where we’ll unlock your artistic potential and bring your travel illustrations to life. Let’s make art and have an incredible time along the way!
