What kind if character will I draw?
Whatever you want. Cartoon, life like, children bookish, you will be learning about those styles in the workshop.

BodyLanguagepigs2klI could use some help with designing the character for this idea I have for a children’s book. Will this be for me then?
Yes it’s perfect! In this workshop you will design, develop and get to learn your own character. You can bring it to life in your own children’s book, once you have made these first steps.

Is it worth the money?
Great question. This workshop is bursting out of its seams of all the content in there. If you do all your homework, you won’t be disappointed.

How does an online workshop work?
During this 4 Week Workshop, every week you will find a new chapter on the workshop website. Each chapter contains instructions, step-by-step videos, case studies, tutorials and exercises. By doing these exercises and assignments you will grow and develop your own character. You can upload your work on the course platform, so other people who do the workshop can see what you do an you can see their progress and encourage them.

artist2klShould I have done the online drawing course ‘JustDrawIt!’ first before doing this workshop?
You don’t have to, but you will definitely benefit from the basics you learned in ‘JustDrawIt!’

Do you give your feedback on my work?
No. This workshop is self-guided. You can share your work and get feedback from fellow participants. And you can join the private Facebook group for this workshop, where you will find a supportive group of previous and current participants, you can upload your images there, and connect with other participants and get their feedback on your ideas, sketches designs and questions.

I have an idea for a children’s book already. Can I use this in the workshop?
You sure can. This workshop is perfect for the character development of the characters in your picture book.

With what kind of material do I have to work?
No rules. If you want to draw in graphite pencil, with dip pen and ink, paint, use charcoal, draw digitally on your computer or iPad: it’s up to you.

How long will I have access to the workshop material?
During and after the 4-week workshop, you can get back to all the material at any time you want.
