Description

In my 30+ Years of Teaching Experience I have found that Pastel Pencils is the by far the easiest art medium to pick up and learn.

In this course you will learn how to use a small range of pastel pencils to create a stunning picture of a Kitten! It is designed for all levels including absolute beginners.

You only need 9 pencils to get started with this picture which makes it an ideal project for beginner artists. Once you have completed this picture you can move onto our more advanced classes.

We provide you with an outline drawing so that you do not have to draw free hand. Trace this through to your paper or print it straight out using your printer.

Colin walks you through step by step with Video instruction how to draw each stage. You'll learn techniques behind drawing dogs and create a piece of art you can be proud of.

We have broken the course down into bitesize chunks that you can follow and return to with ease.

If you love drawing and want to discover easy techniques to create stunning art that you can transfer to your own pictures then this course is for you.

Who this course is for:

  • Absolute Beginner Artists
  • Students with some drawing experience wishing to use pastels
  • Experienced artists that wish to learn Colin's self taught pastel pencil techniques in their own work
