We have both new and rebooted courses coming to you:

Introduction to Sketching

by Pedro Loureiro

Starts on January 14th // US$72

If you’re an absolute beginner, have never picked up a pencil, or want to experiment more with sketching, this is the course for you. You can do the whole program with nothing but cheap print paper and a roller ball pen – simple tools but effective.


NEW: The Journey of Looking (in Watercolours)

by Ian Fennelly

Starts on February 9th // U$S120

Learn how to describe your subject and evoke an emotional response through watercolours. For 4 weeks, Ian will show you how to really look at an image and establish a composition. From structure to tone, patterns and details, at the end, you will have a deeper understanding of the medium and the process.


NEW: Introduction to Acrylics

by CassyDraws

Starts on April 8th // US$80

Learn how to use acrylics in this 4-class program. From brush techniques, colour mixing, blending and layering, you will be able to paint your own original pieces at the end of this course. Suitable for complete beginners.


NEW: Introduction to Drawing

by Tina Hotchkiss

Starts in May 2023 / Price TBA

Even if you're into painting, you should go through this course first. Drawing is the fundamental practice behind most visual art forms. It is a learned skill - One is not born with it. From perspective, dimension, shade and shapes, learn how to draw in this 6-part course.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will these courses be completely live?

Every class will be streamed live, but the video content is pre-recorded.

For the new courses, the teachers will be present during every class to teach live (the audio is fully live, only the visuals are pre-recorded), and answer any questions you have.

For the other courses, the teachers will be present for at least one of the classes. All classes are pre-recorded (both video and audio), and our hosts will stream them live. For more details about the participation of the teacher, please check the specific course page.

You will be able to participate live through the chat function in any of the courses. We will always have a host there to help address all your questions and pause the video if needed.

During the course, the teachers will also address questions from participants on the exclusive Facebook group for the course.

At the end of the course, we will do a fully live Q&A session with the teacher. You'll be able to participate via chat, ask them all your questions, and get feedback on your final assignment.

I'm a subscriber. Do I have to purchase the course separately?

The courses are free for all Subscribers.

Please email us at hello@etchrstudio.com to indicate your interest in participating in a course, and you are all set.

If you'd like to subscribe, please go to this page.

*Program participation is withdrawn once the subscription is no longer active.

What if I can't attend all the Live classes?

No Problem! Each week has an assigned class. You are welcome to join the Live class and watch the class with other participants or watch the recording of the class at your own time during the week.

How does the feedback work?

Each class will present you with a new challenge assignment. If you submit it on the private Facebook group asking for critique, you will get feedback from the teacher and other group members.

At the end of the course, the teacher will also provide feedback on your final pieces in a Live Feedback Session.

However, it is worth noting that this feedback will be at a high level; something to guide your next steps. This is also reflective of the price being charged for the course plus the support and feedback provided along the way.

I still have questions!

We're here to help. Please shoot us an email at hello@etchrstudio.com and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
