Meet our kourses

Online art classes designed to get you creating. They’re fun, they’re different, and they’re made to fit your life.

Our kourses go way beyond typical art instruction classes. You’ll hang out with the teachers, hear their experiences, learn about their tools, see how they work, and share their personal sketchbooks. With beautiful, high-quality videos filmed right in the teacher’s studio, you’ll be inspired, instructed, and entertained.

Learn when and where you want. We have lots of kourses you can start right now to work on at your own pace — binge or savor them, it’s up to you. You’ll be surrounded by lots of other students to support and encourage you. Join live webinars where you can ask questions of the teachers and founders of Sketchbook Skool. And with life-time access, you’ll keep learning from these kourses for years to come.
