Get ready for a year of inspiration! Draw 365 is based on my online drawing course with the University of Victoria and is patterned after my book, Watercolor 365. Each day you will receive something new to help you in your drawing journey. There are prompts, tips, video tutorials, and inspiration to get you started and keep you drawing throughout the year. There is so much content in this course, it is like taking two semesters of university level drawing but without the pressure of due dates, tests, and grades. Plus you get to join a community of other artists wanting to improve their drawing skills.
The course starts with how to draw in pencil and charcoal on various paper surfaces, focusing on how to see an object and how to create the illusion of depth. You will learn what makes good design, how to draw in perspective, and how to draw a portrait. Various pen and ink techniques for sketching and drawing are included as we move into some color theory. Finally, you will learn how to use colored pencil. There are short lessons to follow and some assignments to challenge you as an artist. Along the way, there are goodies and ideas thrown in to help you find your artist voice and bring out your inner artist.
This course starts January 1, 2022 and will only be open for enrollment for a limited time with limited space. So hurry! and sign up before another year without art in your life passes you by.

"I started the Draw 365 course with a desire to create art that would be good enough to share on a greeting card to family and friends. I had previously had little training in art but always loved it. I was definitely a beginner. A more experienced artist would also find this class very beneficial. I knew that I could trust Leslie Lambert to teach me through this course to be better at this craft but I never dreamed that she would propel me to create drawings and paintings that would bring me such a sense of accomplishment. I was surprised and delighted to see how quickly I was able to draw realistic items and hands and faces and the different aspects and tools that we would use. I am very pleased at the variety of methods she has taught. I love that we are learning about color and numerous methods of art. I find myself anxious to see her newest lesson every day. She has unlocked the power to create that has been hidden within me. Leslie is truly a great artist and she is also a skilled and talented teacher. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn more! 100% satisfaction for me!"

"Leslie, thank you again for being such an amazing teacher even from a distance, you have been so supportive and I learned so much more than I even thought possible from your course. I had very little experience with art before this course and I am so grateful for everything you have taught me and everything I have learned about myself through my artwork."
