"The class that really changed my life was the Colored Pencil course. Before then, I had colored pencils, but they just sat in a jar on my desk. I learned so much about the different techniques and looks one can achieve that they have soared to the top of my favorite medium list along with watercolors." -Thistle Uknowhoo, Ione, CA

Colored pencils aren’t just for kids and coloring books.

They’re a powerful medium for sophisticated, expressive art making — once you know how to use them.
Four professionals will teach you techniques for mixing colors, creating light and volume, photo-realism, and capturing skin tone. In this 4-week course, we’ll explore blending, solvents, surfaces, hatching, color theory, even ways to hold a pencil and keep it sharp. Packed (37 demos!) full of insights and tips.
