ink horseI grew up with horses and have always loved drawing them, so I’m very excited about this: Registration is now open for Draw Horses and Ponies, an “extended access” online course that allows you to work at your own pace. Use pencil, pen, ink and brush to draw horses of all breeds (from tiny Falabella miniatures to enormous draft horses) and life stages from birth to old age. Includes how to draw each gait, as well as jumping, shying and rolling. Draw horses under saddle and in harness. There is a lesson on drawing riders (both Western and English) and one on donkeys and mules. Explore realistic pencil renderings and playful, impressionistic brush drawing. No experience necessary!

Class size is limited.

The first lesson will post on a private website on Tuesday, Nov. 3. Lessons will post weekly, but the course remains open and active for five full months.  This means that you can start in November and create holiday gifts for your horse-loving friends and family if you like, OR you can start the course on your own schedule after Christmas and still have three full months to move through the 10 lessons before the window closes in April 2016.

sketchThe course includes 10 instructional videos, and 30 illustrated pdf pages for you to print and keep. I’ll provide one-on-one guidance and feedback at each step of the journey.

The cost of the course is $65. For information on how to sign up, send me an email at

See you in class!
