Coloured pencils have traditionally been thought of as the ‘poor cousin’ of art mediums – but not anymore!

Experience the unique properties of the world’s best coloured pencils as you explore their (and your) potential in an action-packed workshop that will stimulate, challenge, surprise and reward you.

This workshop covers a broad range of topics including:

  • road testing the products and supports
  • planning and executing meaningful drawings
  • tips and tricks
  • revealing the real ‘you’ through your own style of drawing.
  • the challenges of working in realism through to abstraction.
  • painting with coloured pencils.

Join Richard to discover why coloured pencils are a joy to work with and are so versatile!

This class is suitable for those 15 years and older, however if you are under the age of 18 please contact the McGregor Office prior to booking.
