This is the drawing circle that you've been waiting for!
With Sarah Watts
Let's Fast Track Your Skills as an Artist.
More than 50 Video Lessons
My ever-growing video library includes foundation lessons, guest speakers, drawing and mindset motivation, and more! And each live session is recorded in case you miss one! It's like creativity Netflix!
My biggest goal is to help you carve out some creative space for yourself every day. Even if it's just for ten minutes. That daily ritual is where you will grow, develop, and ultimately achieve your own goals!
Challenges and Prompts
Let's be honest, sometimes the biggest hurdle out there is our indecision in WHAT to draw! I provide prompts and references, and even host challenges all aimed at getting you drawing TODAY.
The Squad Community
Every journey is better when you get to meet friends along the way! My private community is a place where you can share your art, ask questions, find new resources, and make creative friendships!

Hi, I'm Sarah Watts.
I have crafted a career as an illustrator, fabric designer, and art educator and have collaborated with over 35 companies internationally. I developed Sketchbook Squad so that artists like you and me can have more community, and more accountability to grow our creative practice and hone our artistic skills.

Is the Sketchbook Squad right for me?
I designed Sketchbook Squad to be accessible to creatives at any skill level. Who is this membership for?
• Artists that are curious about pushing their art further and improving their skills, no matter what medium.

"I love making all kinds of things, but I've always thought I could design more of what I make if I'd only learn to draw! Sketchbook Squad has not only increased my technical skills, but has boosted my confidence."
- Nicci Westbrook
"I have absolutely loved being a part of Sketchbook Squad. I've noticed growth in my work and in my confidence. Instead of freezing with fear/not knowing where or how to begin with a sketch, I'm able to break things down into basic shapes and see things start to form & make sense."
- Savannah Palma
"This membership has been amazing! I love the prompts, the Sketch Nights, and the guest artists! Sarah is super personable and fun to listen to. She's generous with advice and wants to be flexible and make this awesome for everyone. I've had so much fun!"
