Katharine is a terrifically talented teacher and creates highly engaging online courses. She is not only an accomplished artist but shares the technique effectively with online demonstrations, practical tips, art history and a sense of humor. She takes full advantage of good technology using over head cameras to capture and convey with precision. Treat yourself!

These are such excellent on-line classes as you keep everyone so creatively engaged for 2 hours. Also having the video of this to refer to afterwards is a huge bonus as there is a great deal to absorb in each session.  I think I might miss this if we ever do go back to regular classes!

As a novice artist, Katharine provides a low-barrier and supportive environment to teaching drawing and painting skills. Katharine’s use of technology and her descriptions of techniques and tools makes the classes enjoyable and informative.


Katharine has adjusted to the new normal of online teaching with incredible skill and speed. She makes great use of the visual advantages of the online medium to deliver her classes without compromising on the quality of instruction. Being in one of her lessons is like having a front-row seat or even looking over her shoulder as she sketches. It’s fantastic.

Katharine’s view of the world is aesthetic – a view she cannot but transmit to her students. I have had the pleasure of having Katherine guide me through an online drawing class and was struck by her passion for the subject, her expertise with the skills involved and her joy in communicating those to others.

Katharine’s classes have been a great opportunity to learn and practice the basics of drawing. She is a patient and attentive teacher and her demonstrations are always a bit magical to watch. Looking closely at the natural world and learning to draw it accurately has been a worthwhile and very enjoyable experience for me. Looking forward to your next class
