Hooray! It’s here at last – The first ever Sketchbook Club course! This is an £8 saving on buying the four modules individually.
Jennie has created four modules, with the idea that each module will take about a week to complete, making this a month long course.
Try each module out in as many ways and as may times as you like, it will last for three whole months so there’s no hurry!
If you would like to buy the course as a present for someone else, purchase a Course Gift Voucher which can then be redeemed by them for either course.Frequently Asked Questions

Module 1 – Houses
On your very first page of your sketchbooks, you will be creating a beautiful pen and ink drawing of a row of houses (or skyscrapers, castles, follies etc.) with a lovely flat aqua blue sky with delightful little clouds in the sky or plumes of smoke from chimneys etc. made out of old book pages.
This module’s Instagram hashtag is #SketchbookClubHouses.
Module 2 – Fish
You will be creating a beautiful spread of some free style illustrated waves with a wonderful wheel of fish leaping out of the water. There’s lots of reference to choose from (tracing is fine too with this one!) so you can really make this page your own.Waves are SO hard to draw, and hopefully with a little help and a lot of reference, you will find your own personal way of drawing the sea…
This module’s Instagram hashtag is #SketchbookClubFish.
Module 3 – Washing Line
Using the traceable reference you will create a really sophisticated image of clothes swaying in the breeze. With lots of images to inspire, you will paint the clothes and then add detail using coloured pencils.
This module’s Instagram hashtag is #SketchbookClubWashingLine.
Module 4 – Bugs
In this last module, we will be creating a beautiful spread of bugs and butterflies. Using the reference to trace or copy, we will be introducing a brilliant technique using tissue paper as the base colour and adding detail with a fine liner pen. You may wish to add further detail or colour using paints and pencils
