Sketching as a lifestyle. Autumn session for beginners – ONLINE bootcamp


7-week (October – November 2023) online sketching course with our feedback, video tutorials, and live lessons

You are in the middle of your day. Just ended one task and have a short break till the next one. You make a tea, grab a snack, your sketchbook, and paints. This is your happy place. Your portal to feeling alive. A moment when you slow down, and breathe in and out.  Everyone around you knows that this is your time. Your time with yourself, your inner and outer world. These can be 10 minutes or half an hour or more. They are spent enjoying life, creating pieces of memories, and connecting to your inner self.

This is not a dream, this is a reality. We will show you the first steps. We will guide you through your first months in your new lifestyle and later you can just continue. Because you will be already sketching. Small creative acts will be a part of your everyday life. Come! We are ready to take you with us!

The course starts on 12 October 2023 and new videos will be released or Zoom calls organised every Thursday  until 23 November 2023. Timing – 20.00 Riga time (19.00 in Brussels/Copenhagen, 18.00 in London, 14.00 New York, 11.00 Los Angeles) . All Zoom calls will be recorded.

– What to expect from this course?

Online course consists of lessons from us – sketchers and illustrators Angese Aljena, Daina Domašūte and Masha Zurikova. The idea behind STUDIO by deepdeeplight is to create a happy place to discover drawing as a lifestyle and a space of interplay and sharing. You are welcome to join and enjoy together by embracing your existing skills and learning something new.

We will show you how to create your first lifestyle sketches with ink, watercolor and pencils. This is a course for beginners, so we will cover all basic topics you need to begin your journey with a sketchbook.

The course includes several assignments. Everyone enrolled in the course will have to post their assignment into the closed Facebook group (link will be provided via e-mail). The Facebook group will be used to create the space for questions and support from fellow learners.

This course will be interesting for beginners with no previous experience, who have a wish to introduce sketching to their daily routine.
