Sketchbook to Style Boot Camp is Different Than Other Art Classes.


There are countless “How to Draw” classes and videos on the internet. What I’m teaching in this course is something much deeper—something that pushes the boundaries of artmaking. If those other How-To classes are like learning to play technically-correct, traditional, Classical music—this class is like learning to play Jazz. It’s about self-expression, individuality, improvisation and above all, style.


As Pablo Picasso said,

"Style is the difference between a circle and the way you draw it."


This class is not about perspective, tone, shading, lighting, or color theory. I’m not going to show you how to draw a circle. I’m going to guide you down the path so you can find how you draw a circle. I don’t want to teach you my style, I want to teach you to find your style.


This course guides you through every part of the sketchbook journey step-by-step: what tools, the blank page, paying attention, looking inside, developing a habit, doing the work, and drawing from daily life and how to keep up this creative habit for life.

Are you one of those folks who say you can't draw? Guess what! I believe everyone can draw! And learning to draw in your own style is sometimes even easier for people who haven't spent years trying to "learn" how to draw the "right" way. Included in the course are basic drawing tips and techniques.


 



















How a sketchbook can help you find your voice

Sketchbooks let you tap into your instincts, drop your worries, and inject a playful enjoyment into the act of drawing.


It’s about getting out of a final artwork, planned out artwork, perfection expectation frame of mind. We will fill our sketchbooks with new ideas, old memories, people we love, things we love, our daily life, and imagination.


Our sketchbooks will be a visual representation of our minds and hearts and our Self. It will be a means to an end (the joy creativity brings us) and a source for new ideas and projects.


It will be the key to developing your style of drawing, and learning how to draw like you.
Once you really commit to your sketchbook practice, and follow through... you’ll never experience drawing the same again.


Plus a Supportive Community of Artists!

Need some accountability, inspiration, and feedback on your work? The Sketchbook to Style PRIVATE Facebook group (which you will get access to with your enrollment) will have other like-minded students at all different stages of the sketchbook to style process, sharing their assignments, sketchbook pages, problems, and successes! And I'll be in there sharing all my assignments and chatting around as well!


This course is is taught with an upbeat, love-to-draw, fun, positive attitude. But! I'm also not afraid to give it to you straight, pull you up off that wallowing couch, and push you towards your drawing desk to get busy and do the work!

Extra Bonus!



My 11 Year Sketchbook Journey

A potentially embarrassing (for me) insider look into all my sketchbooks, from 2006 until 2017. Most of these pages haven't been seen by anyone and you'll get a first hand deep look into how my style has progressed and grown through my sketchbooks over the past 11 years! This is something personal and special that I've never shared anywhere else before.

This exclusive sneak peek video is yours free as part of this limited-time special offer to enroll in Sketchbook to Style Boot Camp (the video is already uploaded to your account and you will see it when you login after you enroll).


"I always learn something new from Christine. I think my favorite part about her teaching style is how she breaks things down visually and in a simple and conversational way. I am visual and need step by steps which can be hard to find when it comes to teaching art style and art concepts. When I implement her teachings from composition to dynamic gestures, my art always improves and my confidence grows. I'm excited about what classes I have seen and will see in the future!"

Erika Barriga, Illustrator + Designer

"When I quit my soul-sucking job, I decided to reset and needed to learn new skills to find my next path. I found Christine’s class and she changed my life. She was a great teacher, inspiring, solutions-focused and pragmatic. She made the craft seem simple and she helped remove all my fears of trying something new. I ended up co-creating an innovative children’s book that was then featured by Mashable, Fast Company, Adweek, CoolMomPicks, etc. THANK YOU Christine!"

Mara Lecocq, Creative Director, Secret Code Founder, #GirlBoss Contributer

"I found the concepts and process Christine taught in her class were very valuable to me when creating my art portfolio for graduate school. The skills I learned from her, such as how to portray the most essential characteristics of an animal or object, have carried over into my school work and current job. She offers thoughtful, constructive feedback, which helped take my scientific illustrations to the next level. I would recommend taking a course with Christine to other artists!"

Matan Berson, UX Designer

“The thing about Christine is that she is so approachable. As a teacher, she addresses her student as an equal, which in turn, allows the student to have confidence in her own ability.”

Paige Meredith Ray, Artist + Illustrator

 







Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course begin and end?
The course is a completely self-paced online course—you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
You have lifetime access to everything, including all the videos, downloads, and bonuses!
Do you offer a refund or guarantee?
Yes! If, within 30 days, you are unsatisfied with the course, you can have a full refund. I do ask that you complete the entire course and most of the assignments before you make a decision though! It’s a process!
Do I get access all at once or do I have to wait?
You get access to everything the moment you enroll!
I’m not that good at drawing. Is this course for me?
I believe everyone can draw! And even if you think you can’t this sketchbook practice is the best way to learn. And actually, I think sometimes people who think they can’t draw end up being really good at drawing because they aren’t bogged down with thinking about all the rules they think they should be following!
Do I need special tools or materials for this course?
You’ll need a sketchbook and a few pens, pencils, and markers. There’s a full list included in the course, but nothing expensive is required, and you probably already have some of them! A sketchbook is about experimenting, so we actually do best with cheap tools so we aren’t afraid to use them up!
Do I need any software for this class? Will you be showing us how to edit/Photoshop art?
This class is all analog! We will only be drawing in our sketchbooks, and not digitally. You may want a camera and computer to take photos and share your sketchbook pages on the Private Facebook Group, but that’s not required!
Will this course show me how to make money as an artist?
No. This course is about finding your artistic style, and does not go into the strategies of making money from art.
I’ve been drawing a long time, and consider myself a skilled artist. Is this class for me?
I believe artists and their styles are always growing and changing, and can always benefit from experimenting and playing in a sketchbook. This course shows you how to implement a sketchbook practice, which I think is super valuable no matter where you are in your artistic journey. And if you already sketchbook regularly, I still think you’d benefit from going through all the drawing assignments, hearing new creative perspectives, and sharing your work with the community!
How much time do I need for this course?
There are a total of about 2.5 hours of video and 60+ assignments. The pace you complete the course is totally up to you! I recommend drawing every day during the course: watching one video and completing that videos assignment(s). If you watched one video + completed that video’s assignments each day from the day you enrolled, you would be finished in 38 days. But that might be rushing a bit! Plus, you’d still have all the bonuses too!
I have another question, who should I ask?
You can email me (Christine!) directly at: christine@mightcouldstudios.com
