Is drawing something you’ve always wanted to do but never dared to start? Or are you an experienced artist who feels as though the fun has gone out of creating? Either way, Chantal’s workshop is for you!

It is even for you if you consider yourself not creative, think you have two left hands or if the last time you gave yourself permission to put pen to paper was back in primary school. Because although you’ll be drawing during the workshop, the focus is on having fun, loosening up and re-discovering that childlike sense of joy that comes from making stuff.

Chantal’s workshop includes a range of playful exercises that will get your imagination fired up and you excited about drawing again.

You’ll go home equipped with a bunch of fun starter activities that you can turn to time and time again to tap into your creativity.
