Cassydraws

Cassydraws is an Art Teacher and a Professional Wildlife, Pet Portrait, and Nature Artist from Canada. She’s been making art since she saw Disney’s Lion King at 13. 


Cassy loves art because it allows us to express ourselves and our emotions, bringing joy to others. Cassy paired her passion for animals with her love for art. Today, her visual voice is used to create and generate awareness for wildlife and species on the brink of extinction or provide a loving memory to someone who has lost a pet.


For Cassy, teaching art has been one of the most fulfilling and enjoyable experiences in her career. She thoroughly enjoys helping others find their style and develop their skills. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What will I learn in each class?

Great question! Here is a short description for every single class:



Session 1: Supplies & Introduction to Colour Mixing

Learn all about the supplies needed for acrylic painting, along with an introduction to colour mixing that help further strengthen your confidence and ability to create multiple variations of tertiary colours. Cassy will also cover the basics of shading and tinting and teach you how to adjust natural tones to complete our section on natural neutrals in Acrylic. 

Session 2: Basic Brush Techniques

Cassy will go through various brush shapes and discuss their purpose and where they can be used most effectively in painting. You will also understand how to get the most out of your brushes and how the paint's consistency can affect your painting approach. Finally, you'll get an introduction to wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry techniques.

Session 3: Shadow, Mid-Tone, Highlight, and Layering

Develop your layering technique and shadow/mid-tone/highlight knowledge by practising basic shapes with different light sources and consolidate your understanding of wet-on-wet blending. At the end of this class, you'll be able to paint a simple still-life object.

Session 4: Bringing it all Together w/ a Landscape

Bring and consolidate everything you have learned in this course and apply it to a landscape painting.

Will this course be completely live?

Pretty much, yes. Every week, Cassy will do a live stream. All audio will be live, but the painting portion is pre-recorded to ensure the best quality with minimum technical issues.


You will be able to participate live through the chat function. Cassy and the host will address all your questions and pause the video if needed.


After each live session, the recording will be available for replay.


During the course, Cassy 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 Cassy. You'll be able to participate via chat, ask her all your questions, and get feedback on your final assignment.

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.


We also have a recorded video for each homework that we will upload every Saturday right after the Live Class takes place. Please watch it and upload your work to the Facebook group so you can get some feedback on it from Cassy.

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

This course is free for all Subscribers.

Please email us at hello@etchrstudio.com to indicate your interest in participating, 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.

How much will I be able to interact with the Artist, Cassy?

Cassy will be present for every single class. She will be available to answer any questions.


During the course, Cassy will be active on the private Facebook group and answer any questions.

How detailed would the feedback be?

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 Cassy and other group members.


At the end of the course, Cassy 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 4-class series plus the support and feedback provided along the way.
