Drawing Classes

In the Studio | In-person

Student DrawingJoin me weekly in the beautiful, nurturing environment of my studio where you can relax and enjoy the company of others as you learn the fundamental skills needed to draw everything! Drawing isn’t as complicated as you think… all it takes is a little coaching and lots of tips from my 35+ years of experience.

Whether you are a complete beginner or more advanced, in only a few sessions there will be a noticeable improvement in your drawing as you start seeing the world around you in a whole new way!

Sessions are offered in ‘blocks’  on an ongoing basis throughout the year so you can start anytime. Subject matter is loosely set for each session but is very flexible and based on each student’s needs and interests. Class sizes are limited to only 7 students maximum to ensure each student gets lots of attention.


  • Sunday Afternoon Sessions – 1 to 3 pm – Beginner and advanced ** FALL SESSION BEGINS Sunday, October 15, 2023 **
  • Wednesday Afternoon Sessions – 1 to 3 pm Beginner and advanced  ** JOIN ANYTIME **

COST for Wednesday Sessions:  Block of 4 sessions = $160+ HST. Start anytime. ** NOTE: new students must initially commit to and pay in full for 2 blocks (8 classes = $320+HST).**  This is to get you started right and allow sufficient time  to develop your skills and see progress. After your first 8 classes are completed I offer more flexibility to pay in blocks of four classes which encourages you to keep drawing on a regular basis.

COST of Sunday Sessions: NEXT SESSION BEGINS October 15, 2023 and runs for 8 weeks. Total cost for the 8 classes is $336+HST, PAID IN FULL upfront on or before October 15. A ninth class on December 10 or 17 will be held as a make-up session for anyone who misses a class due to absence or if we have to cancel one due to weather. For those who attend all 8 classes the ninth class will be a bonus that reduces your amount per class. Please email artist@dancingmoondesigns.ca to indicate your interest and for payment details. 

LOCATION:  Sessions are held in my studio (#206) on the upper floor of the Alton Mill Arts Centre

BRING YOUR OWN ART SUPPLIES – a large spiral-bound sketchbook (11″x14″ minimum), a set of drawing pencils and a kneadable eraser. Inspiration and subject matter provided!

PLEASE NOTE: This class in not suitable for children. Young adults 12 years and over may be considered if they are mature for their age, are willing to be in a class with adults and are very serious about learning to draw.

Please email artist@dancingmoondesigns.ca in advance for registration and payment details. 

In-Person Private Lessons or Introductory Sessions

If you don’t feel quite ready to join a class you can book a private session with me to gently introduce (or re-introduce) yourself to the basics of drawing. In the calm and unpressured environment of my studio I will gently take you through the fundamentals and help you over any initial nervousness. The fee is $180 for a minimum of two hours.

While one-to-one sessions like this may cost a little more but they are well worth the dedicated time and attention you receive and will allow you to transition to group classes when you feel ready. You can also ask a friend, partner or child to join you and share the cost! For groups of more than two people, we can discuss options and cost. Please note though that this isn’t a “paint party” situation but for those who truly want to learn more about drawing.

Both private or introductory group sessions can be booked by emailing me at artist@dancingmoondesigns.ca
