Free online drawing class - The Anti-Perfectionism lockdown recovery sessions

Free online drawing sessions to support resilience with creative exercises you can do at home.


Kia ora I’m Sian, and I’m here to offer you a free online drawing class. It’s in response to Covid 19, and all the change happening in the world at the moment. It’s called the Anti- Perfectionism Recovery Sessions, and it’s a series of 4 drawing sessions using colour, charcoal, collage and writing that you can do at home, FREE!

These sessions are not about getting it right, but play, experiment, relaxing and coming to ourselves with acceptance, just the way we areright now. They’re designed as an antidote to the narrative during lockdown around being productive, like writing that novel or whatever!

They are a gift – funded by Wellington City Council and umbrellaed by The Independent Art Trust. Thank-you!

They are developed from a live course I’m teaching now, where people are saying they’re finding it liberating and relaxing. I’m recording 4 sessions so you can do them at home, in your own time.

I’ll tell you everything you need in advance, then guide you through the creative experience in the recordings. I am currently looking into providing materials kits through the post, for people who are entering lockdown in Auckland.

If you’d like to receive these recordings, message me and I will sign you up.

They’re coming soon! I look forward to drawing with you.
