Draw With Katie – ‘Buildings’

Join Katie for a remote Draw Your House Illustration Workshop!

Following on from Katie’s incredibly popular illustration workshops, normally held at the King’s Cliffe studio, we are excited to offer digital workshops so that you can take part from the comfort of your own home!

With Katie you will learn to illustrate using clear confident lines and produce a quirky and stylised drawing.

This workshop is most suited to people aged 16 and over and you do not need any prior experience!

Participants will be guided through the illustration process and will work on producing an illustration of either their own house or a building of their choice. We can also provide photos to work from in the accompanying Workshop Support Pack.

What to expect? The video itself lasts for approximately 30 minutes, but this does not include your drawing time. We would normally allow3 hours for our Illustration Workshops, including a 20 minute break for important tea, biscuits, wine etc. The 30 minute video includes a short introduction followed by a lesson from Katie, including a demonstration and Katie’s top secret tips for illustration!

Once purchased, you will be sent an email with the link. You can then download it and watch it as many times as you like!

After holding many workshops at the studio each and every person who has attended has produced a lovely illustration – with some easy and clear guidance you too will produce something lovely to be proud of!

Need to know: If you are planning to draw your own house you will need a photograph that shows the WHOLE building from the roof line all the way down to the ground and please make sure nothing is obstructing your view of the house. For an example of the type of photo required, see the last image in the gallery. Alternatively just use the photos included in the Workshop Support Pack.

We will be using fine liner pens and A3 cartridge paper. If you already have these at home that’s brilliant, otherwise we have created a Workshop Support Pack to make life easier, this includes 10 sheets of A3 cartridge drawing paper, 2 fine liner pens (the ones that Katie uses) and 2x A4 photographs to work from. We recommend you to buy the pack, but it’s not completely necessary.

This workshop is suited to people aged 16 and over.

Draw With Katie – Kids Club!

We are super excited to bring you our brand new club – designed especially for children and young teenagers!

What is it?  It is a 50-page A3 workbook/sketchbook, broken down into 6 weeks worth of drawing exercises, interactive pages and plenty of sketching paper. Each week has a different theme and includes a fun drawing exercise to help with skills and confidence, followed by a step-by-step tutorial and then an interactive task and a self-led challenge to finish off! We recommend doing it over 6 weeks but it can be spread it out or if your child is super keen, they can do it quicker; it is just a guide! The aim of the course is to get children drawing more confidently, develop their own style and to use their new skills to produce their own illustrations. I have made sure each page is super fun too – as a parent I know only too well that kids learn so much better if they are having fun at the same time! We feel that it is most suitable for ages 6-13.

What is included? Included in the pack is a 50 page A3 printed book, a fun Kid’s Club membership card and two fine-liner pens.

Join the Club: We recommend that you sign up to our Kids Club newsletter by following the link on your order confirmation. The newsletter will be exclusively for Kids Club members and a place where we can share the children’s results and feedback, so they can see what other children have produced! Full details in the email confirmation once purchased.

This workshop is most suited to people aged 16 and over and you do not need any prior experience! It is however very handy to do the Buildings workshop first as lots of the basics are covered in the first tutorial.

What to expect? The video itself lasts for approximately 30 minutes, but this does not include your drawing time. We would normally allow 3 hours for our Illustration Workshops, including a 20-minute break for important tea, biscuits, wine etc. The 30-minute video includes a short introduction followed by a lesson from Katie, including a demonstration and Katie’s top-secret tips for figurative illustration!

Once purchased, you will be sent an email with the link. You can then download it and watch it as many times as you like!

Please note you are unable to share the links – please do tell friends and family about the workshops but please do not try and forward the workshop via email or a digital sharing platform.
