BEGINNERS ANIMAL PORTRAITS in Coloured Pencil

After covering watercolour, drawing and acrylic animal portraits in this class we’ll be using colored pencil as our medium. This class will be great for either a beginner or a more experienced student. We will be working with specific lesson plans and because this medium takes a while to complete, we may only end up with only a few finished pictures. With this medium, you can achieve a more realistic result and image which I think students may appreciate.
