Drawing with Collage

Posted by Koosje Koene in Draw Tip, sketchbook on July 19, 2018

Making a mess with my homework

As the new 5-week Sketchbook Skool Kourse ‘The Whimsical Sketchbook’ is in progress, Danny and I alternate doing the weekly homework assignments. This week’s teacher is Vanessa Brantley-Newton. I am so excited that she is now part of the Sketchbook Skool Fakulty, because I’ve been dying to learn from her for ages, ever since I ‘met’ her online when I started exploring the blogosphere years ago.

Her klass is so inspiring, full of energy, full of emotions, stories and demos. She shows us many approaches towards making art, using all sorts of art tools; and for the homework, we get to make a mess: we’re drawing with collage!A bit out of my comfort zone and therefor a fun challenge! Here’s the video I made during the process.

It’s not too late to join ‘The Whimsical Sketchbook’! Go to to find out more and enroll!

Hi I'm Koosje. I'm an illustrator and art teacher in Amsterdam, where I was born and raised. I went to school to study graphic design, then worked for ten years as an award-winning professional photographer. But eventually my love of drawing and painting took over and I became an illustrator. My illustrations have been published in many Dutch magazines and in 2011, I began blogging and started developing and teaching online art classes. In 2014 I founded Sketchbook Skool, which is a flourishing community of artists from around the world of all skill levels.
