Thank you for join me for a virtual brunch-time sketching session from the National Gallery of Ireland. For those who fancy making the drawing in their own time I have posted it on YouTube video above.
We will visit the National Gallery of Ireland via their virtual tour and draw the sculpture of the Crouching Venus from the collection.

Online art classes are coming soon the Art Academy. As a result of COVID_19 many of us are working from home. Some with children at home too. If you have a potential Picasso in your home, Art Academy will soon offer online art classes both live and prerecorded leaving you free to work from home while your artists create from the comfort of your own space. I’ll leave some Children’s YouTube video’s I have made at the end of this post for you to enjoy immediately.
If you fancy art classes yourself get in touch: email@example.com I can create an offering for you too. I know I am grateful to have art in my life right now. It is a great way of managing the anxieties at this time. Less scary news watching and practicing a small bit of self care creating a piece of art is hugely beneficial. I’ll leave some YouTube video’s I have made at the end of this post for you to enjoy immediately.

Check out his drawing made by Sarah Labanyi age 7. Sarah and her sister Ruthie are 7 days in to the daily drawing challenge and have been making some incredible art from the YouTube videos. I’ll feature more soon. You guys are doing wonderful work. I’m so proud of you.
I’m so excited to see the artwork coming in from all my wonderful artists. You are turning my feed into an art gallery. Keep them coming. Sheila
I have started a YouTube channel SheilaFlahertyArtist to share drawing tips and tricks. I’d love to know what you think? How can I improve and what kind of art videos would you like to see? Let me know in the comments under the video.
The 2 most asked questions I get about art are: 1. How long does it take to make a drawing? Different for every piece of art. In the one above about 50 minutes.
2. What art materials I use? I’ll share the art materials I used for the drawing in the video of the silver bow below- and I use these few art products quite alot. They are among my favourite art supplies.
