Drawing with Kerry Lemon is a chance to learn alongside an artist whose work has been commissioned by Liberty London, Jo Malone, Virgin Airways and Harrods among many others. Although Kerry’s drawings can be found in widely diverse contexts including international print, retail, architecture and branding, she would be the first to tell you that she draws every day for the sheer joy of it — because drawing helps us to slow down and to truly experience the world around us.
Drawing can provide a way to document your day, your life and, to create a dedicated space for you to breathe into the moment, to be fully present in the moment. And who couldn’t use a bit more focus on ease and light?
Attention is the beginning of devotion.
– Mary Oliver
The beauty of this workshop is that it is not about final product, but about the PROCESS of developing and nurturing a daily drawing practice. In a sequence of lessons that each build upon the previous exercises, Kerry shares with you her personal approach to keeping a sketchbook and, how the consistent practice of drawing provides a way to find the fun in every day as well as deepening your confidence as an artist.
The lessons focus on:
- developing a playful approach to breaking up the white space
- an exploration of the many ways to create TONE
- all the ways you can define your distinct style through the use of LINE
- and of course, that ever challenging task of transforming the three-dimensional world into a two-dimensional drawing.
Best of all — you will get to watch as Kerry
does the exercises right alongside of you.
Videos you can watch over and over, at your own time and pace. At the end of each lesson, Kerry has prompts and exercises for you to continue the exploration and continue to develop your own voice and signature style.
This workshop is available to you until the very end of December 2018, so you have loads of time to dip in and out as works best for your schedule.
All along the way we have the opportunity to share our work, our discoveries, our happy mistakes and our sweet successes at Instagram where we can cheer each other along and discuss best practices.
If you have ever wanted to learn more about drawing, create your own adult coloring book, have the confidence to create a wall mural in your home, or just find a new avenue for self-expression — this workshop could be just the thing to open all sorts of new doors for you!
What a gift that could be . . .

How much is this workshop?
What do I need to do this workshop?
Paper and pencil. A computer or ipad to watch the videos on.
Do I have to buy all the supplies on the materials list?
Nope. Paper and pencil is all you need to practice. The rest is just for fun, play and exploration.
What skill level is this for?
Kerry is sharing her specific approach to drawing practice. If you have never drawn before, she creates a beautiful starting point for you. If you are seeking to renew your drawing practice or get re-energized — this might be just the ticket. Kerry’s enthusiasm is rather infectious and, you get to watch her draw in real time, which can be tremendously inspiring. A rather long-winded answer to say this is open to all. Kerry’s lessons focus on breaking up the white page, tone, line and creating 2d drawings of 3d objects.
Do I need any previous experience to take this workshop?
Not at all. Please see above.
What can I expect to get out of this workshop?
