This fun introduction art class is taught by the extremely talented Jeannette Sirois! This is an introduction class for students who are interested in learning how to use colour pencils to draw portraits. This class covers the use of colour in creating shape and form, focusing on skin textures, eyes and mouth. We’ll look at skin tones from undertones to highlights, we’ll learn how to choose colours and how to successfully layer colours in transparent methods to create accurate skin colour and texture. Along the way, we’ll explore various techniques of details such as how to make eyes shine, how to create realistic lips with texture, and how to use tonal ranges to create form and visual interest. Students will be given tips and tricks on using colour pencils, as well as a discussion on layout, papers and other important tools when working with colour pencils. Students will be given access to online videos and opportunities for feedback through zoom or online video feedback of all their work.
