Copyright 1997 Susan ShieLucky Drawing 173, July 14 to August 12, 2024, is my next freehand, intuitive online drawing class for women, in a private Facebook group classroom.  That link I just gave, is here on my site and is full of info about the class.  So read all about here, where I even have a full supply list, way down that long page. 
Then register for this class, at my Facebook sign-up event page for the class by clicking the "going" button on that page.
  This next class, Lucky Drawing 173, will have its soft opening on Sunday afternoon, July 14, sometime between 3 and 4 PM eastern time. 

The next class after 173 will be Lucky Drawing 174, running from Oct 13 to Nov 11, 2024.  I now teach 4 classes a year, with  8 weeks between the 30-day classes.  And my class fee is now $175 by check or $180 by PayPal (with those using foreign currency on PayPal paying $185.)

At the FB class sign-up event page. you'll click on the "going" button, which will sign you up for this next class.  You can pay me any time before the class begins, or even later, if you need more time.  When I receive your class fee, I'll let you know I've gotten it.  To start the new class on its opening  day, I'll send a FB notification to invite students into the class, to get set up that afternoon or evening, unless you need to wait and come the next morning or even later.  You'll click on that FB notification, and it will take you to the FB private group called "Lucky Drawing 173." When you get there, bookmark that page for easy access during the class.  There is a list of all of the year's Lucky Drawing classes on the class info page here in my website.

Notes: I don't tell you how to draw - no step-by-step or rules about it.  It's about learning to relax and appreciate your own natural style of drawing!  I tell you how to let go and stop judging your work, and to just watch it come out of you!  I give drawing themes that you can use, bend, or change - or sit out, and we all draw in mixed media in large, hardbound sketchbooks.  We post photos of our drawings to the class, and everyone is encouraged to give lots of only positive feedback - without offers of how to improve your work.  We ALL need that good feedback, and we all need to keep going on our own creative paths, NOT someone else's!
You don't have to show up at the online class at any specific time, including the first day's soft open.  Show up then or the next day or even the next day.  There is never a specific time when you have to be there.  But I hope you want to come to the class as soon as you can and as often as you like!! Being there at the very start on that first Sunday afternoon is a lot of fun, seeing who else is in the new class, and checking out their brand new selfie photos, that we each will use to be the "covr art" of our personal albums in the class!


Copyright 1997 Susan ShieNo Turtle Art Camps in 2024. I had 4 weeklong camps scheduled for 2020. But they were all canceled, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  I'm so sorry that we haven't been able to have camps since then, and I don't have any planned for this year, so far.  I think I'm probably not going back to teaching the camps, but will still leave the camp page here on my website for now ... in case I wake up one day and decide to do them again.)  :)

Please look at the camp page here, if you want to see what the camps were like.  When I had them, I took 1-5 adult students for each session of weeklong live-in art camps for adult art students at my home. The whole camp class was about drawing and painting in large, hardbound sketchbooks. The main thing is to learn to trust your drawing instincts and not judge your work, but enjoy making it. All freehand, original work done as personal stories in images and possibly writing. The Camps were my in-person version of my online Lucky Drawing classes.  But for many years, from 1994 through 2015 or so, I taught mixed media work, still all freehand, on cloth and paper both, and we even made small art quilts.  And Jimmy and I taught airbrush, and I taught airpen.  I still use my airbrush, when I make my big art quilts, but I quit using the airpen, after breaking both of my wrists (2015 and 2018) in dog falls.  I am still making art quilts, but I think my Turtle Art Camp days are over.  (But I could change my mind, so I'm leaving the Turtle Art Camp page up for now.)
