SketchingNow Edges Self Directed Course from Liz Steel on Vimeo.

Everything is still the same, whether you enrolled earlier in the next or right now – it is a self-directed course, work at your own pace with lifetime access – it is just that I am closing the doors for a few months. So this will be the last chance to enroll this year and for the current price.


I really love the content in this course as it contains the concepts that I am constantly using when I sketch in ink and wash, and itcovers a very broad range of subject matter – sketching monuments, scenes with layers of trees and landscaping, streetscapes, work spaces, houses, food and teacups. I particularly enjoyed the last lesson where I explained my favourite way of sketching with lost and found edges. Click here to view the embedded video.

Here are a few reviews of SketchingNow Edges and examples of sketches done during the course:

What a great online class! And I do not say that lightly because I am an online instructional designer by trade. Loved that you had 3 or 4 well defined objectives each week. Loved your transitions between lessons. You were always able to relate the material from the previous week to the current week.The videos were fantastic! Your peppy demeanor made them engaging along with additional scenes of people walking in the park etc. It was like a story, not just a tutorial! The over the shoulder shots were a godsend. The handouts were wonderful summaries. (I felt like I got a free book with this class!)You were always engaged with the the question and answer area.* And finally your feedback was quite detailed. You were truly present and listening. Thank you for such a wonderful class! – Vivian


Thank you Liz for such an excellent course – this has stretched me way beyond what I thought I could achieve! Tabitha


Thank you for a great course Liz, it’s very complimentary to Foundations. I have learned a lot in a very short time which feels great and is giving me the confidence to just get out there and sketch. – Meryl


It was a hugely beneficial course and the thorough teaching and feedback from Liz Steel* has been invaluable! Sometimes it is hard to articulate what it is you needed to learn until you are learning it and this is certainly the case with this course! What can sound like a rather conceptual course from the outside, has actually turned out to be a bit of a revelation to me! – full of hidden gems and ah ha moments. –  Liz A


Thank you Liz for a fun, thought provoking, and informative four weeks. I also want to thank all my classmates for sharing your work, ideas, experiences, and aha moments. I learned a lot and it was fun to see such a varied world of places and objects. Jim


Thanks, Liz, for such carefully constructed courses, and for your poise and zest and ‘joie d’art.’ I truly loved ‘coming to Australia every week’ to learn from such a polished instructor. I signed up because I knew that both the watercolor technique and the architectural focus would be a stretch for me. I had no idea how meaty your courses would be, in terms of art principles.  Joanne
