Who is this online class for?

All adults who like to doodle! Did you love cartoons as a child? Would you like to spark your creativity? Then this is for you! Join me in my online virtual class for awesome drawing fun and Discover your inner Cartoonist!

Discover Your Inner Cartoonist was set up by me, artist Sarah Jane Vickery, with the aim of helping more adults recapture the joy of drawing and have fun while building creative confidence.

Can you draw a funny expression? Can you create a character from nothing? Yes indeed! In this art class you will learn about capturing facial expression, emphasising characteristics and creating cartoons form scratch. It’s all about designing fun cartoons and developing a style all your own. There’s no need to be an artist! Suitable for all different ability levels.

“Very pleasantly relaxing and relaxed atmosphere. I found some creativity in myself which surprised me!”
- Alan Churchill

Why learn to draw cartoons?

Cartoons are a fantastic way of engaging the imagination. My approach to my online art classes is all about being curious, observant and experimental. Drawing is really about learning to see. In each online class we go through the design process – you'll discover you can draw pictures you never imagined possible. This method not only improves your drawing ability, but also gives you the confidence to express your ideas visually and the skills to apply this thinking to other creative challenges.

How do the online art classes for adults work?

The online art classes for adults are very similar to my live classes; there is a lesson, a demonstration, and we all get drawing. You can ask questions, get feedback and share our work too. You will login to our online Zoom art class with your computer, tablet or phone. You will need your sketchbook or paper and pencils to draw with. You may also want markers, pencil crayons or other colours to work with.
When you login to Zoom's online class you will be in our virtual classroom. You will see both me and my desktop so you can see me draw. Zoom allows you to choose to turn your camera on or off so that we can see you and you can show your work. I will take questions at various points during the class. You can also type questions into the “Chat” window, “Raise Hand” virtually and verbally ask questions too.

How do I login to the online art class?

Once you pay and checkout you will receive a confirmation email with the link to your online art class.
  1. You will be prompted to download and install the Zoom app if you have not already done so. You only need to do this once.
  2. Open the Zoom app and input the Meeting ID from your email confirmation.
  3. Log on a few minutes before your class begins.
  4. You will be in the “Waiting Room”. I will start your session at the designated time.
  5. You can choose to have your camera turned on or off. If you turn it on, we can see you and you can share your work and get feedback.
  6. If you have difficulties there are complete instructions on my How to Join Your Online Class

  1. Jane

    I have done two of Sarah Jane’s classes through the Guildford Institute, and thoroughly enjoyed them. Sarah Jane is very imaginative and teaches in a friendly and encouraging way, it was good fun and great relaxation letting my imagination run, and creating cartoon characters! Thank you!

  2. Kristen

    I had so much fun drawing my first cartoon!! I couldn’t believe I could actually do it!! Sarah makes it fun and interactive. I like her positive atmosphere too. Look forward to doing more drawing.

  3. Dusty

    I’ve done cartooning Zoom sessions with Sarah, and they are a lovely way of doing something different and fun. The instruction is brilliant, and just having a giggle and being imaginative with others brightens my day. Thank you Sarah!

  4. Anne

    Sarah was a wonderful instructor! She was engaging, encouraging and provided clear instruction. I didn’t know what to expect from this session, so I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun it was! I also can’t believe I was able to draw something other than stick figures! I would definitely recommend this session to anyone looking for a fun and informative experience.

      I’m so pleased to hear that! I love when I surprise myself and am able to do more than I imagined. Thank you for sharing your work and experience and I hope to see you again Anne 🙂

  5. Bhavani

    This was my first cartooning, any drawing session for that matter, and it was truly a pleasure learning to draw from Sarah.
    She was patient, engaging and had a lovely way of giving instructions that anyone would understand and follow. I surprised myself looking at my finished product as it turned out to be a decent cartoon drawing. 🙂 . I not only enjoyed the session, but also was relaxed at the end of the session. What a great way to learn in a positive environment and have fun. Thank you Sarah!

  6. Barbara Duckitt

    We arranged for two adult classes for staff with Sarah and three classes for their children. We have had nothing but enthusiastic and positive feedback from the adult participants, many of whom did not have any prior experience in drawing. Sarah has also received rave reviews from the parents of the children who participated for her ability to engage with the children and make the sessions fun. At this difficult and challenging time, these classes gave our staff and their children an opportunity to tune out all of the bad news, engage with other people and do something creative. I highly recommend Sarah’s classes.

  7. Nicole

    Drawing with Sarah and the group is so much fun. It really helps ignight those creative juices. Having been a bit rusty with illustrating Sarah makes you feel at ease is engaging and encouraging throughout. I can’t wait to draw again on the next exciting class. Give it a go, you will be pleasently surprised. I was!

  8. Veronica

    I always find these classes supportive, relaxed and joyful. Sarah leads us to create wonderful, crazy scenarios which make me laugh. I am in awe at her creative imagination combined with great skill at drawing and enjoy learning from her with tips on composition, characters, expressions etc. Sarah often brings in amusing characters from her wonderful Cartoon Club card game too.
    I look forward to the Classes and enjoy them so much I feel it is always time well spent. Thank you Sarah.

  9. Kerie Hinchliffe

    I love these drawing classes. Sarah and the group is so supportive. It is a fun session with some wild ideas and fun cartoons. Her imagination and story telling brings the session to life. Sarah teaches skills in an easy to follow way. I started with very little skills and had hardly drawn since school, my skills continually improve. I couldn’t have done this without Sarah and her cartoon club.

    Sarah’s online adult cartooning class is awesome! Sarah is an amazing artist and she’s really good at teaching people with various skill levels. I started taking Sarah’s adult cartooning class about 8 months ago and I’m hooked. I regularly join the morning class from Canada and it is such a joyful start to my day. I always look forward to the class because we have a lot of fun together. I have always felt welcome and my drawing skills have majorly improved. Thanks Sarah!
