About the workshop:

Not sure where to begin with creating your own colour pencil drawing? This workshop will cover the basics of colour pencil drawing, getting familiar with colour pencil types and equipment choices.  The two days include colour theory, learning how to mix and blend colours and create a range of textures. You will complete a series of artworks with different techniques to build familiarity and confidence with the colour pencil medium. Students can work at their own pace and preference - either your choice of project or completion of exercises covering different techniques.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Knowledge of materials and equipment used with colour pencil drawings.
  • From beginning to end - discussing the steps from concept to finished drawing.
  • Knowledge of basic colour pencil techniques - colour layering, colour blending, colour mixing and pencil marks.
  • Demonstrated understanding of how to approach and develop colour pencil drawings.

Suitable for all students from beginners through to intermediate students who wish to develop their colour pencil drawing skills. A materials list will be provided prior to the start of the first class.

Class size is limited to 12 students.
