Hello Doodle Bugs of ages 10 - 110!

As we enter a 'new normal' for now, I wanted to help my community in the best way I know how with what I know.

Art has been known to heal, to bring people together and to take us on an adventure.

I am inviting you virtually into my little studio space to come and create with me.

This course has been designed for Adults/Guardians to create with their family members and friends. This course is NOT for children under the age of 18 years to watch un-supervised. This course is designed to bring you time together with your family/roommates. Some instruction is created for Adults to interpret for their young 'classmates'.

(Introductory video link: )

I normally teach this course in person at our local Recreation Centre (Semiahmoo Arts Society) for 5 days, 2.5 hours each day for a total cost of $175 per student.

I know that a lot of us around the world are practicing self-quaranteen in our homes. To help everyone out, I had temporarily offered this course to you online for the low cost of $35 per household (a big discount). This promotion ran from March 20, 2020 until May 20, 2020.

Right NOW you can still SAVE 70% with this code at check out "SPRINGBREAK2021".

I have put many years of art practice, hard work and originality into this course. Please do not share this course content.

This is a time to support one another. This is a time to create new habits and new adventures .
We are in this together, my friends.

We are entering a new era. Let's put our energy into it with positivity and create a better future for us all.

Join me. From my safe space to yours, we are in this together and together, with all of our combined skills, I believe we can make a better, more loving future for us all.

Take care, support your community however you can and let’s make good in our lives.
Stay healthy, help one another and give where you can.

Much love,

WHO is this workshop for?:
~Teens, tweens and Adults of all ages.
~Artists from moderate beginner to advanced (initial drawing/sketching skills are required)
~Stay at home Gods and Goddesses!
~Fabulous creative souls like you!
~Anyone who wants to learn!

Your workshop INCLUDES:
~6 video segments including tips, techniques, and more!
~Links to these video segments will be sent to via email. DO NOT DELETE this email. You will receive links to the first 3 video segments in your first email and then the following 3 segments will be sent to you a 6 days days later (possibly sooner). This is so that you do not skip ahead and miss some important steps.

(You are not required to use the same products.)
~10 or more sheets of white practice paper (blank, lined or graphed). I use printer paper.
~a light coloured pencil for your initial sketching. I use a col-erase or Pilot eno mechanical pencil.
~Optional: a regular HB lead pencil.
~a clean eraser. I like using white erasers.
~Optional: a ruler either 6 or 12 inches long. If you have a clear one, that is easier to use, but not a must have.
~1 or 2 fine line water proof black in pens with a small and medium point/tip. I use Faber-Castel PITT pens in ‘S’ and ‘M’.
~Optional: My favourite pen for inking variety width lines is the black Pilot brush tip pen. You do not need this pen though.
~The paper I use in my classroom for our ‘good copy’ is three or more 9X12″ sheets of Bristol Smooth 100lb 260g by Canson. In the Video I am using Strathmore Visual Journal Spiral Bound, 9 by 12-Inch, Mixed Media Vellum. I like these types of paper, as the markers I mentioned above will not go through the paper, plus I can colour my work in many ways (watercolour, acrylic paint, pencil crayons, wax crayons, and more). If you only have printer paper, just make sure that you only do your work on one side of the sheet. NOTE: The number of pages you use, depends on how long your story is. This will be determined when we do our practice thumb nail work.
~COLOURing your work: if you only have pencil and/or black marker, that is fine. Otherwise you can do all your colour work in wax crayons, or pencil crayons, or water colour paint, or acrylic paint or even a variety of the above. I show you how you can use these products in one of the videos in class.
I~f you will be using paint, make sure you have a water cup and some basic paint brushes. Mine are from the dollar store. I use a #10 shader, #10 round and a #2 round. The dollar store brand I buy has a dark blue handle with the name ‘Masterstroke’ on it. You will also need paper towel for cleaning your brushes,
~I think I have covered all the items here. We go over our supplies during the first video segment in class as well. If you are buying any of these for the class, you can find Amazon links to my favourite supplies on my ‘Art Supplies’ page. These links will give you a good vidsual of what the products look like. Just remember that I am encouraging you to use what you already have at home. This is a class for having fun, and creating new fond memories. If you have any comics or graphic novels at home, use them for inspiration. See how they used colour, line work, narrative, framing and more. I look forward to see you in the classroom.

I love Nicci’s clear, calm instructions that help you or a child to complete a lovely piece of artwork in the form of a comic strip. This class is wonderful!
