12-week Group Self-Paced Version starting 5 July 2023

Work through the course with an inspiring group of sketchers from around the world

and take part in a bonus Q&A livestream


Can I participate even though I am in a different time zone to Sydney, Australia?


Yes! You can log into the classroom at any time to view the lessons (pre-recorded videos), ask questions and/or upload your work.

There will be one Q&A session on Wednesday 16 August 9am Sydney time. (BST 12 midnight, Tues 15 August GMT 11pm, EDT 7pm, PDT 4pm)  A replay will be permanently available in the classroom after the event.

Is there anything I need to do before the Group Event starts?


If you sign up before 5 July 2023, there are a few intro exercises to do.


The lesson demonstrations use a range of materials – mostly ink and watercolour with some watercolour pencils – but it is more important to use what you are familiar with. There will be no need to go and spend a lot of money up front getting any of my art tools!

More detailed material list can be found here.

You could also do this course using your iPad (or other tablet) if you are more comfortable sketching digitally although there are no specific instructions for working in a digital format.

I prefer to work at my own pace, can I do that?


Yes, of course! This timetable is totally optional and you can work through the lessons whenever it suits you.

Teacher Interaction during the Group Event


Liz will be in the classroom regularly looking at the work uploaded and answering questions Please note: She will not be commenting on individual homework.

Each lesson contains a designated question section so that you can easily ask Liz questions related to the lessons.


What happens after the Group Event finishes?


If you get behind during the 12 week period of the Group Self-Paced Version, you can finish off the lessons at any time.


The classroom will become quieter but there will always be some people working through the lessons. And yes, you have lifetime access so you can come back to the lessons whenever you want as well as join in future Foundations Group Events.
