Our species have been drawing since the dawn of time.
If you tell me: “I can’t draw” or “I’m not creative” I won’t believe you.
“Dear Divya, thank you for teaching me about drawing! I’ve learned a lot from “When in doubt, draw!” I had mixed feelings about drawing, but now I see the possibilities of creating a piece of art... it has enriched my life!”
wonder what happened to your creative self?
dream about sketching a landscape you love?
wish you could just pick up a pencil and draw?
you could open up that brand, new sketchbook and start creating the work you dream of?
you felt confident about (finally!) opening that untouched water colour set?
you woke up that inner artist and found out what he/she could do?
you found me!
Always wanted to draw, but think you’re not good enough?
The door’s always open. And your creativity’s always right there.
It's all about getting started.
And all that requires is...
So whether you're a little rusty or not done anything creative since school, allow yourself a huge sigh of relief because...
(Not a Frankie fan?)
Well at least I say relax, hakuna matata, chill out, no worries!
In this course, which is yours FOR LIFE, I'm going to give you my whole 5 step (stress free) process with:
- audio guidance (so you can listen as you draw)
- videos (so I can guide you through each module)
- support (feedback and opportunity for 1-1 coaching)
- downloadable handouts and module PDFs (packed full of fun exercises and opportunities to delve deeper, revisit and review)
- bonuses (in an ever expanding resource area!)
to take you from blank page to wherever you want to go :)
More Than Drawing
What I get told the most about When In Doubt, Draw is that it's unlike any art course people have done before.
“An environment that revealed what I had always thought was missing” - Matt
"Unexpectedly meditational." - Vanessa
When In Doubt, Draw is my original, creative empowerment programme that teaches you not only how to draw, but also how to reignite creativity in all aspects of life.
Right now. Right where you are. Wherever you are. Whatever stage you're at. In 5 steps.
I developed this course because I found that I was an artist who could bring drawing home.
I found I could explain practices and exercises in an accessible way, for anyone, at any age.
I was also SO VERY sick and tired of traditional copy and repeat courses where everyone's work ends up looking the same!
Built upon my many years teaching drawing to students of all ages, abilities and walks of life, this five part course is designed to give you all you need to be able to draw on your own and in your own style.
When In Doubt, Draw can be used individually:
Or as a training and empowerment resource for you and your team:
Farewell boring team builds!
Join artists around the globe and discover how you too can learn how to draw - on your own and in your own style - in five, practical and soulful sessions.

All The Secrets
I continue to teach in person, at Atelier Kato, our drawing school in Tokyo, but I simply couldn't reach as many people as I dreamed of reaching.
But, now I can!
Here's all I know about drawing and creative living rolled up (with a great, big hug) for you.
"The Worst Enemy To Creativity Is Self-Doubt"
- Sylvia Plath
Let me take you back to the beginning...
There was a time in my life when things happened (in very quick succession) that were completely out of my control.
These years were tough and full of loss, pain, disappointment and constant change.
But they taught me how to start from scratch.
Charcoal Drawing Aged 13
I learned how to make my mark in the world and make something new that would move me forward.
I learned how to rise up fighting.
And how to keep striving towards my dreams.
All the way to the life I've built, slowly, brick by brick, over here in my adopted homeland of Japan.
And, what helped me the most?
My trusty sketchbook by my side :)
More than just a skill, in a time full of doubt, drawing and the blank page offered me a safe space to express, reflect and gain the clarity and confidence to move forward.
This is the place where When In Doubt, Draw was born.
And this is what makes the way I share drawing very different.
If you're only interested in drawing, there are countless courses out there which will have what you're after. You can go, learn, copy and repeat and voila - you've done a drawing!
But, if you're interested in drawing AND exploring then welcome - you're in the right place!
I am much happier now about how my life is going.”

Passionate advocate of art education, drawing, visual literacy, art therapy and collaborative, cross-cultural art projects that strengthen ties between countries and cultures.
My work exists in private and public collections, including ANA InterContinental Tokyo, featured in ELLE, The Indian Express, the Royal Society of Arts (RSA), Metropolis and collaborations with international organisations, local communities and schools.
Growing up, I began making my way in the world. Life continued - with its fair share of ups and downs! - and still drawing was there to help me process experiences and navigate change.
I began teaching drawing, not only as the skill itself, but in the way I had come to know it.
And this was when something clicked.
I wasn't teaching people just how to draw.
I was helping them rediscover their creative selves.
I found that I was an artist who could share the creative process in an accessible way with people from all walks of life and all ages and abilities.
Sharing drawing with others lights me up from the inside out and I'm thankful every day for the work I get to do.
Committing to building your own business isn't easy, but committing to rediscovering your creative self later in life isn't either.
Watching people being brave and bringing new drawings to life is joy through the roof and I say with all my heart, thank you.
"Creativity takes courage" - Matisse
Especially later on in life! And I've been helping people find that courage now for over 12 years. Seeing faces light up in recognition of, and reconnection with, their creativity is the why behind my work.
The way I share drawing is not only about the skill itself
(although that on its own is pretty cool) as you're about to learn.
To this day, I continue to paint and teach in parallel; an aspect fundamental to my work, and created the When In Doubt, Draw programme to share my love of drawing with others, both in Japan and around the world.
It's all I know about the benefits of art and creativity rolled up (with a great, big hug) into my gift to you.
So welcome, friend. I'm happy and honoured you're here and hope you'll enjoy the joy of drawing as much I do.
Everything you'll find here is about how creativity and the simple act of drawing transforms lives.
Love, Divya x

"I felt lost... I always loved drawing but hadn't done it for a while...
I enjoyed the communication and combination of art and therapy and the process of accepting myself through drawing.
I also started to draw outside - which I had never done before - and I stopped being shy about what people would think about my drawing.
Thank you so much with all of my heart!"
