Stick Figures to Songbirds in Just 60 Minutes

A Six Step Roadmap to Sketching Success!

Can’t draw a stick figure or a straight line?

Great, because there are very few of those in nature!

I’ve created a six-step roadmap to sketching success with a 3-video training series that will give you the skills and confidence to start sketching today.

So, sign up and you’ll get my video mini-course that I call ‘Stick Figures to Song Birds in Just 60 Minutes’ and you’ll be sketching realistic flora and fauna in no time. Well, one hour to be exact!

Student Testimonials

"Christine helped me to become more confident and excited about drawing. Plus Christine’s videos are very approachable, educational, and fun"

-Nicole Weprin

"I really enjoyed this course. The instructions were so clear and straightforward. I learned a lot being a more intuitive, non-detailed person. It makes me appreciate those artist who can capture an image - animal, human, emotion - with just few well positioned lines. Thank you Christine!"

-Gordana Sjostedt


"Thank you, Christine! Your gentle and encouraging teaching strategy is so very helpful. I have been drawing for years and often wondered why it just wasn't quite right. These simple steps will guide me in future drawing with confidence!"

Christine Elder

I’ve been drawing and painting nature all my life and love sharing the joy I experience when I’m in the field with students.

As a former classroom teacher, I know how to lead students in a logical, step by step progression, giving them the knowledge to proceed with skill and confidence.

My advanced degrees in both biology and scientific illustration inform my work and teaching style.

I travel regularly, sketching the flora and fauna I encounter and teaching workshops to both adults and youth in such diverse places as Mexico, Honduras, Jamaica, and the United States.

I make my home in central Oregon, on the eastern slope of the volcanic Cascades mountain range, where the pine forests meet the sage steppe.

When not teaching, I enjoy hiking, bird watching and horseback riding.
