Jenni Onn

Jenni Onn offers regular art classes called ABC You Can Draw. I spent an enjoyable and relaxing morning with her and a small group of students improving my drawing skills.

Jenni paces the activities well and has an encouraging attitude. She believes we are all capable of doing art and that drawing skills underpin all other design and visual art talents.

All levels of skill are welcome to the classes and there is plenty of time to ask questions. In addition, all of the art materials and paper you need are provided, except for a clipboard.

The class I attended covered a range of exercises from simple warm-ups, drawing shapes and objects in 3D. We were led step by step on how to break up a face so you can draw one in the correct proportions. These lessons were tied together at the end with drawing a mystery image upside down. This technique helps you to bypass your inner critic and gain confidence.

Jenni Onn is currently a TAFE teacher with a strong background in the creative industries, so you're in capable hands. She's even illustrated for magazines and a series of children's books.
