Learn to draw in 5 weeks
Fast and fun illustration class for people who think they can't draw (and for everybody else!)
self learn course + 5 weekly live webinars starting September 29th
on Tuesdays 8PM Copenhagen time
You will learn how to:
- Ditch boring stock images and make your social media posts and newsletters stand out
- Visualize strategies and solutions for your clients
- Use drawing for teaching and presentations, on - and offline
- Impress your clients and colleagues with your drawing skills
- Experience the joy of being creative (again)!
How it works
The fastest way to learn – weekly live webinars, combined with a self paced online class.
You get access to the videos, text instructions and downloadable worksheets as soon as you enroll. The videos are very short, most are between 3 and 5 minutes.
At each point of your journey you get lovely drawings out of your sessions! And, you'll have access to the lessons forever! When you have worked through the basic lessons, you can learn to draw additional topics in the Drawing Club (see bonus below).
Here is what we cover:
- Style and technique – my secret recipe! And some playful warm-up exercises
- Simple heads with various hairdos, expressions and characters
- Easy figures from standing to dancing
- Tell your visual story: Prompts, mindset and layouts
- Real world application – how to use your drawings digitally or analog
We begin with very simple figures
And in no time you can illustrate any topic in your newsletter or blogpost!
But – what if I don't have talent?
This question is the reason I made this course. You don't need talent. You need the right instructions – and practice.
For decades I didn't dare to make my own illustrations. I thought I just wasn't good enough. Although I am a graphic designer and could decently draw from nature. But when it came to drawing "just a little illustration", I got paralyzed. I thought it always looked "wrong".
Until, one day, the picture turned 180 degrees when I found out that drawing is easy when I don't have to draw "correctly". I did a lot of research and experimentation, and found an easy way to illustrate. And the best is: I can teach you how to do it!
That said, there is a lesson about "proportions" in the class, so you know what you are allowed to ignore.
I love systems! Drawing explained in an easy practical and systematic way
This is the course I wish had existed when I started out. Many drawing tutorials are too complicated. Who wants to sit through an hour long teaching video? I deliberately kept the lessons very short and concise.
My method is based on easy-to follow step-by-step recipes.
And once you understand how it works, you can tweak them and start playing.
- In this class the focus is on the most important topic: Human head and figure, which is the most difficult, and in my opinion, the most important thing to learn. Once you can draw a figure, everything else is easy. You can re-visit the lessons as often as you want.
Bonus – Webinar library and Drawing Club
Access to a huge library of draw-along-webinars about a wide variety of topics, about
- basic perspective
- hand lettering
- digital illustration
- mixed-media play
- feedback sessions
- and much more!
Bonus 2 – Drawing Club
After the five weeks the fun isn't over – You get to be a member of the LiLL Drawing Club.
I frequently give drawing webinars, and you are invited.
It is really nice to meet and practice drawing together!
You can request topics, or I just do something useful and fun that fits into the season.
The doors are closing soon!
If you buy now you don't have to wait until September 15th. You get immediate access to the basic course, the bonus library of webinar recordings AND the current Drawing Club webinars!
What participants are saying – and drawing
Su Busson, coach
I have always dreamed of being able to illustrate a little bit - for my blog and for little everyday stories. But I drew worse than a kindergarten child and my attempts quickly ended in frustration. And then Lill's illustrations course came along. Drawing was suddenly really fun and my pictures became much better.
Lill´s feedback on the drawings was worth its weight in gold.So if you say you can't draw but would love to, this course is definitely for you.
“I took Ingrid’s drawing class because I have always loved to draw but I had very little confidence. Ingrid taught me many tips and tricks that made my drawings that were once flat now pop off the page! I love Ingrid’s quirky style and I learned that sometimes it is best to not try to draw to perfection. Ingrid taught me to embrace my own style. She is encouraging and built up my confidence! I would love to take another drawing class with her!
I highly recommend "Illustration made easy"! This course is loaded with step by step instructions, helpful templates, tips and tricks. Best of all, you can get direct feedback on your drawings and also learn how to digitalize. The classroom is a great learning environment and Ingrid will show you how to make your own illustrations in a very easy to follow way!
Tusinde tak for en sjov, intens og udbytterig kursus, der bragte mig mange skridt videre. Jeg fik alle mine illustrations udfordringer håndteret og jeg fik lært nye færdigheder – f.x. hvordan jeg kan arbejde videre med dem på Ipad og pc. J
Absolutely love the Tuesday evenings with Lill Drawing Club. Ingrid Lill is a professional illustrator. Tonights theme were "going crazy" with bright colors for half an hour. Certainly got my mind on something else, - I feel refreshed....
An dieser Stelle mal ein grosses Lob an den Zeichenkurs von Ingrid. Es macht einfach richtig Spaß, man kann sein eigenes Tempo bestimmen, erhält Tipps u Tricks und hat nie das Gefühl überfordert zu sein. Dass alles in Englisch abläuft ist auch gar kein Problem. Da Ingrid viele kleine Clips einfügt u gut verständliche Texte schreibt versteht man so gut wie alles. Dieser Kurs bringt mich wirklich dazu jeden Tag ein bisschen zu zeichnen. Und das mit Lust und ohne Zwang.
Man merkt ich bin richtig begeistert 😀 deswegen von mir 5 Sterne u Daumen hoch!!!
Elisabeth Triebel, Formfalt
This session was the most fun I've had in months (motorcycle riding excluded.) If you had told me an hour earlier that I could draw a reasonable fish or a clam, let alone a rudimentary shark I would not have believed it. (The octopus…I will work on!)

Why learn from me?
Hi, I'm Ingrid Lill. Visual artist, graphic designer and professional illustrator. I am German, and I live in Denmark on the beautiful countryside between Ringsted and Næstved. I speak English in my classes – very simple English! But you can ask questions in German or Danish, no problem. I'll translate.
I have drawn all my life. But it was first after I started doing graphic facilitation and -recording for organisations that I embraced the "fast and fun" illustration style that I'm teaching in this course. That said, I'm also sprinkling a decorative elephant or playful patterns into the Drawing Club.
No matter if you are a total beginner, or you you just want to pick up the pencil again and learn a few tricks – I promise you that this class will be useful and a lot of fun!
"Illustration made Easy" is inspired by various drawing systems that I have studied – and I show you how I add my own artistic flavour to it. I hope you'll do the same!
