Thank you for your interest in participating in our 2019 Workshop Series as a guest instructor!

We are inviting 12 colored pencil instructors to create a simple step-by-step for beginner artist, one for each month in 2019 in a mini workshop series. We believe that this will help grow this medium, and help you find new students / followers. This is important to us because we feel that many artists have invested in colored pencils, especially during the coloring book craze, and want to take that next step but don’t know where to begin. We believe that with your guidance, these artist can find a mentor and get excited about what they can achieve with colored pencils!
