Join Jesse Lane to learn the skills of dynamic portraiture. He will lead you through the process, as you create the groundwork to complete the intricate work on your own.
Learn the secrets of turning colored pencil into a fine art medium…. creating works as rich and nuanced as any oil painting.
Award-winning artist Jesse Lane guides you step by step, sharing his signature style for creating nuanced skin tones, dynamic lighting, and compelling composition.
All skill levels welcome!
Everyone works on the same portrait as Jesse gives detailed demos and works with students one-on-one.
The workshop includes:
- Large-Screen Demos: A video camera on Jesse’s drawing board is projected to a screen so students can easily follow along.
- One-on-One Instruction: Jesse visits each participant, offering encouragement, answering questions and explaining technique.
- High-quality instructional materials, including a reference photo, a glossy tutorial booklet, and the image outlined on drawing paper.
Since colored pencil is a very slow medium, students will not complete the portrait in this workshop. Students learn the skills to complete the portrait on their own with the detailed, step-by-step workbook. Take your art to the next level in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere!
