Craftsy (April 20)

Masterpieces are born in the artist’s sketchbook, but are your drawing skills up to the challenge? Luckily, Craftsy is here to help. For a limited time, get 50% off the online Craftsy class Sketchbooks: Drawing the Everyday — a special offer for Colossal readers — with guidance from internationally renowned artist Paul Heaston.

In these video lessons, you’ll learn how to draw the world around you, how to think of your sketchbook as a versatile companion, and how to use pencil, ink, and watercolor in your on-the-go “studio.” First, Paul will walk you through realistically depicting your subject in dimensional space. Then, build texture using ink and infuse your work with color as you add smooth watercolor washes. Finally, you’ll learn how to combine what you’ve learned to create finished works that your audience will connect with in a meaningful way.
