Inspired by Vintage Gentleness

The teacher Päivi Eerola from Finland, spreads her enthusiasm for drawing and imagining. You will learn simple tips and techniques on how to make the poses look natural and how to design fantastic dresses.

“I love old illustrations where the human figures and poses are not always anatomically perfect but still tenderly beautiful. In this course, I invite you to build a world that may start as a secret but has the potential to grow into full bloom when you just keep drawing.”

Päivi Eerola, art instructor from Finland.

Bonus: Membership for Art Community Bloom and Fly

With the class, you will also get a basic membership for the Bloom and Fly Facebook group, where you can share your work and have conversations with Päivi and fellow artists. This membership is for 2023, so you can continue drawing and sharing your art for the rest of the year.

Sketch, Color, Cut Out!

You only need basic art supplies: smooth paper, pencil, eraser, colored pencils, sharpener, and scissors.

Supplies for the online art class Doll World. Illustrate human figures and draw adorable dresses.

The teacher uses Arches Hot Press watercolor paper with a thickness of 300 g/m2, about 140 lb, and regular colored pencils. But you can also use watercolor pencils or watercolors for coloring the dolls. If you want to use the dolls for collage art, choose thinner paper. Glitter glue is an optional but fun addition to decorations.

Even if the core of the course is about drawing paper dolls, you can apply the methods and results to almost any art project. The dolls of the course are drawn on A4-size (about US letter size) paper, and it’s recommended to start this big because it’s easier first. But once you have got the hang of drawing, you can change the size of the figures and get creative.
