Just Draw It! e-course by Koosje Koene

I'm pretty excited about this upcoming e-course I'm taking. Just Draw It! starts on the 1st October 2012, runs for 6 weeks, and will be taught by Dutch illustrator extraordinaire, Koosje Koene.

I first met Koosje through Stephanie Levy's Creative Courage e-course at the start of the year and although we've never met face to face, I'm happy to call her a friend. Maybe one day we'll actually get to go sketching together!

In the meantime, I'm really looking forward to learning from such a versatile, clever and accomplished drawer. Her illustrations have been published in Dutch magazines, on They Draw and Cook, her Sketchbook Project got a lot of love online and her first illustrated e-book for kids has just come out.

I also got to interview her early this year. And in addition to her ability to wield a pencil like no one else, she's also the loveliest person you will come across. If you'd like to learn from a true talent, join me on this course! Click the banner below to head to the registration page.

Here's a Q & A from Koosje:

What is it?
In this interactive, instructor-led, online drawing course, you will learn new drawing techniques, develop your skills and increase creative confidence.

Who can join?
‘Let’s Draw!’ is designed for curious people who have a passion for drawing,  for both beginners and the more skilled, who are interested in exploring and expanding their creative boundaries and who want to enjoy drawing even more.

When is it?
The course will take place from October 1 to November 10 2012, with weekly instructions, step-by-step video- and photo-tutorials and assignments with guaranteed feedback.

In addition to all this, we’ll build an online community with all the participants, through a private Facebook group and a Flickr group. This way we can easily share experiences, compare results and help each other develop skills.

What do you need?
All you need is a couple of simple materials (bring your own): pencil, pencil sharpener, eraser, paper and a set of basic colour pencils.

It’ll be fun and you can be part of it!
