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.

This Animal Starter Course includes 5 Subjects that you will learn to draw using Pastel Pencil Techniques and is designed for all levels. The 5 Subjects included are:

  • Barn Owl
  • Laying Dog
  • Siamese Kitten
  • Grey Wolf
  • Mother and Baby Penguin

We provide you with an outline drawing for each subject 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 how to build colours and create a piece of art you can be proud of.

Each subject contains a series of Video Lessons breaking down the subject into bitesize chunks that you can follow and return to with ease.

If you've 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 is the target audience?
  • 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
