Helping You To Create Calm Through Drawing

Welcome to Draw With Fi!

Are you looking for creative solutions to keep busy brains occupied and calm? It might be for your children, for yourself or both. I can help.

Are you trying to do all the things, spinning plates, distracted and tired?  

It can be relentless, so let me watch the kids (as they draw-along with me) for you while you get ahead of yourself, or come and join us for some time to ground yourself and rest your busy mind. 

The world won't stop if you do, but your world will be CALMER when you put yourself first.   

- Easy to follow, draw-along style sessions that you can fit around YOU -

From beginner to confident artist, I teach you How To Draw, When You Think You Can't TM 

Created during lockdown and rooted in the belief that drawing can impact your life in such an incredible way; I believe that drawing has the potential to have a far reaching, positive impact on yours and your wellbeing

I'm so glad you have found me!

Grab a cuppa, have a look around and make yourself at home.

Need HELP creating daily moments of CALM?

Rather than plonking your children, or yourself in front of a screen so that they simply zone out, how about something special that will help them process their day, connect them with their creativity and cast a magical spell over your whole house?

So that you are free to relax and unwind without the guilt of worrying that they've had yet another late night, glued to a screen.

You have a right to rest and it's more important than ever to prioritise this.

When you buy this bundle, you get instant access to all my course library worth £190 (excluding my seasonal courses) so you can get creative straight away. This element makes them perfect for the Home-Schooling community, or for using in a classroom setting or even to reconnect with your own love of drawing, if it's something you haven't done for a long time.  

Drawing is a fabulous mindful, meditative activity and a dose of it, daily, will really start to calm the nervous system and help to regulate it. Get instant access today! 

Hello! And a huge welcome to Draw With Fi!

Draw With Fi was created during lockdown in 2020 when I was working in behaviour support to provide uplifting and mindful drawing classes during a difficult time.
Drawing can be a magical tool for well-being. You can find out how on this site and through taking part in my courses.

 "We relied on your Draw With Fi classes in the first lockdown for consistency each week. It was good to know we would sit down once a week to have an art lesson."

"When Fiona shows you how to draw anything her approach is the same: simple step by step instructions which are easy to follow.

I haven't drawn in years but I thoroughly enjoyed participating in one of her workshops today and producing some drawings of sea creatures!

Fiona is always so encouraging and her calm manner makes her sessions extremely relaxing and fun.
Whatever your age, I recommend giving it a go!

 "Thank you for a lovely workshop...we are on holiday in a cabin in the Forest of Dean. It is VERY wet and windy and your workshop kept my 9 year old occupied this morning. She says thank you, and she loves to draw."
