Sketching for Surface Designers

The class was designed specifically with surface designers and illustrators in mind. It gives you an overview of sketching as a creative practice and how to utilize it to progress your skills, develop your style, and build your creative confidence. 

During class we'll discuss:

  • My favorite sketching art supplies
  • Ways to tackle the 3 most common sketching issues
  • Beginner tips for drawing flowers, animals, faces, and lettering
  • Two methods to help you find your signature style
  • And best practices for sketching with the final art in mind

What a few of my students have said about the class...

Fantastic class! I have gotten away from sketching and Shannon has reignited the importance and joy of this process for me. It has also reminded me of the importance of the creation process – to give myself time to not skip over it.


I'm a beginner, so this class certainly exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this class to any person who would like to practice sketching. Shannon's presentation was clear and simple. I absolutely loved the class!


Wow, I really liked this class! I've heard people say "find your personal style" so many times, but her two-part explanation is so simple and makes so much sense! She made it less abstract for me and I like that it's an action step. 

Shannon's teaching style really spoke to me too in that she talks about real stuff like procrastination and that you'll think a fair portion of your stuff turned out pretty crappy--but it's ok!


I often feel rudderless because I have a paradox of choice - too much to choose from. Not only did Shannon give great tips for completing the artwork itself, but the style-finding information was also very, very helpful.

I recommend this class for any artist, and urge you to stop thinking about it. Just hit play! I feel energized that I have a path to take now, and I could not be happier to embark on it.
