Welcome to our Online sessions
When all this started, we weren't sure if holding any kind of online session could work, but after some investigating (and having a go ourselves), we realised it's actually, really rather brilliant. Not only do you get the opportunity to draw, make and create, you also get to do it with other people - somehow there is still very much a community feeling and all the usual meditative benefits from an in-studio session.
ANYONE can join in, all degrees of skill - maybe you've been too nervous to give it a go at the Studio? Now is your chance to have a go in the comfort of your own home!
All you need to do is download the Zoom app, then you can be drawing to your hearts content with us and a friendly, wonderful group of like minded artists. Zoom is free and it's really pretty easy to navigate, it's being used the world over for meetings, online yoga sessions, guitar lessons and of course ART SESSIONS!
