Here are some of the challenges we tackle head on in this material:

  • Selecting your pencil colors
  • Layout of new drawing
  • Composition and placement of subject
  • Finding your unique style in colored pencil
  • How to layer depending on the paper used
  • How and when to burnish
  • Understanding how and when to apply different pencil pressure
  • Demonstrations using a variety of papers and pencil brands
  • Buying guide for any art budget

The office hours is a live connection over video with your instructor and other students for discussion, questions and answers. You might be surprised at the topics that come up in these live classes! Many of my students rave about this being their favorite perk!!

**Office hours are limited this time due to space on the platform and the desire to keep it small for a new batch of students! It means more one-on-one time for you.
