The Beginner’s Colored Pencil Course!
Quickly learn to create realistic colored pencil pieces in only 10 weeks! The ultimate interactive course for colored pencil instruction.
Beginner's course? Yes, because I start at the very beginning. But we move quickly through key concepts all the way to creating your own art from concept to completed piece.
The online instruction modules lead you step-by-step through a variety of skills all centered on you learning to create your own art.
The video production is of the highest quality and the printable, PDF ebooks accompanying the lessons are complete with assignments included.
This course is NOT your run of the mill, "follow along" drawing tutorial like you'll find on many popular sites. Instead, you're going to learn how to think and make decisions like an artist. By the time you finish the Beginner's Colored Pencil Course, you’ll be equipped to understand key terms and how they apply to this medium, choose your color palette, and achieve balance in your own unique drawings.
Why not just give you step-by-step instructions to draw various subjects? I'm glad you asked! I believe that establishing a foundational skill set will allow you to create your own work rather than imitating someone else's --the mark of a true artist.
If you are able to make independent decisions as an artist, then you are equipped to earn commissions, enter contests, host a solo or joint show, sell prints of your original work, and the list can go on and on. Sounds pretty great, right?
Now, I know that the Beginner's Colored Pencil Course is not for everyone. But if you are ready to learn the skills needed to apply to any subject you choose, then this course is for you.
If you are ready to train your eye to capture relevant details, then this course is for you.
If you are ready to move forward in your progress and confidence as a colored pencil artist, then this course is for you.
Are you ready? Let's get started!
