Ready to learn to draw and paint?

And then make it a life-long habit?

You can! Learning should be fun, not scary or painful. And once you see what you can do, you won’t be able to stop. It’s addictive!

Instead of just showing you techniques, we inspire and motivate you to make art of your own. Each week you get dozens of gorgeous videos that are like hanging out in the artist’s studio, sharing ideas and experiences, techniques and sketchbooks. You watch them online — whenever you want — surrounded by hundreds of like-minded people to cheer you on. And then you start to create art, amazing art, no matter where you began.

They become your mentors and friends. Sketchbook Skool teachers are top artists, illustrators, designers, authors, and all-round creative folks. Each week, you’ll visit a different teacher’s studio to share stories, experience, tools, work, and sketchbooks — and learn new styles and techniques. You’ll come away with loads of knowledge, inspiration for your own art, and new friends. Our teachers are active members of our community and you’ll be able to interact with them even after the kourse is over.
