Introducing Mimochai Studio
I host an international drawing studio and online community to provide a safe space for learning to draw.
I teach a unique mindfulness approach to creativity. Learn to overcome blocks, nurture a drawing practice, and establish a creative lifestyle.
A Meaningful Community
We have gathered a warm & welcoming community of members hailing from all parts of the world. Many have joined us for the classes, but find the community to be a big part of the reason they stay.
A Month in the Studio
Draw & Breathe Live Workshop
Join us for our monthly live workshop! I bring together my experience teaching illustration and mindfulness meditation to guide you through a relaxing yet productive drawing session.
This is a great time to ask questions and connect with other members.
Learn at your own pace with my on-demand classes. There are currently ten classes with over 12 no-fluff hours of learning, including:
+ new classes coming soon!
If you prefer more bite-sized guidance, try one of our drawing prompts. I provide curated reference photos, examples, and guidance. See how other members have interpreted the prompts for inspiration!
Community Happy Hour
The studio community is about more than drawing— every month, my studio assistant Crescent & I discuss a new topic relevant to the creative journey. We're both former lawyers-turned-artists, so we have a lot to share!
There is also time for open sharing with community members, so it's another great chance to connect.
You can find even more guidance in our resource library, where we have organized all our helpful articles, Q&A answers, live session replays, and drawing prompt archive.
All members have the opportunity to submit questions to be answered in future posts.
Class & Resource Library
The studio is designed to support your creative journey. We have a full library of one-demand classes, helpful resources, and replays.
Monthly Live Sessions
Besides our library of content, we have fresh new prompts and live workshops every month to inspire your drawing practice.
One of the best parts of the studio is the community that has gathered there. Discover the joy of growing with like-minded creatives.

How does the membership work?
With your Mimochai Studio membership, you'll have immediate access to the benefits listed for the membership tier you sign up for. Our studio features a resource library, livestreams, and drawing prompts for all levels, and on-demand classes and replays for our Studio Artist membership level.
We offer both a monthly membership as well as an annual membership for the Studio Artist level. You get the equivalent of one month free by paying annually, and don't have to deal with a monthly charge.
Everything is hosted on our own platform so it's very convenient, and there is even a mobile app to make it easy to access everything on the go.
How much is it?
We currently offer two tiers of membership at $12/month and $27/month. There are also annual membership options which save you 1-2 months.
What's the difference between tiers?
The main diference is that the Studio Artist tier has access to all on-demand classes and live session replays. Studio Members have access to an Intro Class Set (Daily Pages, Mindful Drawing, and Illustrated Journaling) along with access to live sessions without replays.
How frequently is there new material?
Every month, there is (1) a new guided drawing prompt, (2) a new resource article with helpful tips, (3) a new podcast-style livestream, and (4) a guided drawing livestream. There are new posts multiple times per week.
We also produce our high-quality on-demand classes at least twice a year.
Overall we aim to achieve a good balance of fresh new content without overwhelming our members. Our members tend to have about 20-30 minutes a day to draw or work on their creative practice.
Can I switch tiers anytime?
Yes, you can manage this from your memership. You cancel your current membership and switch to your new one.
Can I cancel anytime?
Yes, it is easy to do so from within your membership. It will cancel the subscription and you can access the membership you have paid for until it ends. There are no refunds for amounts already paid.
What's the difference between Mimochai Studio and your classes on Skillshare?
Skillshare only hosts my classes, and does not include certain exclusive content such as Year of Magical Drawing. Skillshare is great if you're looking for access to thousands of other classes, including ours. You can learn guitar, how to cook, how to knit, etc. We love Skillshare for that!
Mimochai Studio is more appropriate if you are looking for community and guidance specifically from me.
