Weekly materials lists will be sent out on Saturdays. If you already have art materials such as coloured pencils, fine liners and watercolours you may not need to buy more materials. Members can suggest materials to explore.
On the call you can always choose whether to have your video on or off. There is no expectation for you to share your work in the Facebook group although we highly recommend it so you can benefit from moving forward with wonderful support and feedback.
We've got you covered! All the sessions are recorded and released every Saturday. Some members attend the first session live and then watch the second session recording. Some members use the recordings mostly.
Why join these classes when there are Youtube videos?
We give you personal guidance and encouragement, so you're not just taking a class, you're part of a safe, supportive, caring community. You're not alone. We're here creating with you, answering your questions, and cheering you on!
You can cancel at any time. To cancel your membership, contact firstname.lastname@example.org You will have access until the end of the month that you have paid for. Annual Memberships are partially refundable. The refund amount will be calculated based on duration of the membership and the full monthly price.
Or do you want to grow your drawing and painting skills faster?
Maybe you're like Sian, who hadn't picked up a pencil for 30 years but had always wanted to, or maybe you're like Gracie; a busy professional who wants to carve out some creative 'me-time'.
If you resonate with some or all of this, then you're in the right place!
The Secret Sketch Party is a fun and practical online art class membership for all adults.
Guests of all abilities are clearly and gently guided through a step by step process to create artworks using a variety
of media from watercolour to pastels. You will be guided by our expert, Lewis, who is a patient and good humoured drawing and painting instructor.
The best bit is, these events are both LIVE and connected to thriving online communities full of supportive and creative adults of ALL abilities who enjoy weekly guided art classes together so that you will grow real friendships alongside your art skills.
After each event there is a Google poll so you can have a say on what we will sketch the following week.
Sketch with you soon!
Join us in the privacy of your own home via Zoom every Thursday or access the recordings to start building your creative side...
The online sketch sessions really bring out the best in you! With support and guided instructions, you will be able to explore and discover art techniques in the comfort of your home. Structured creative 'me time' that allows you to connect with others and enjoy the creative process.
Join the story of your creative 'me - time' journey
Hi, my name is Lewis Chapman and I am the founder of Secret Art Parties. You can see me nestled up at the top left corner on the Zoom call screenshot above. I am an artist and art teacher with over a decade of teaching experience; I trained to teach Art at The University of Cambridge, UK and I have a Master of Arts from Cambridge School of Art, UK. I am represented by New York based online gallery artspace.com and most importantly, I LOVE guiding students to gain amazing art skills while having fun and making friends in our online community.
Before lockdown earlier this year we used to run live painting events in pubs and bars (see below) but when that all stopped we chose to go online and boy, am I glad we did! Now, instead of guiding guests to paint a masterpiece at one off events limited by 4 walls, we offer a membership where members from all over the world can take regular creative 'me-time' from home, make friends, and grow their art skills as part of a wonderful online community. If you're looking to get creative, have fun and learn new skills with some lovely supportive people- you are in the right place!
