About This Class

Welcome to Colored Pencil for Beginners! In this course, you will learn the basics of colored pencil drawing. You will learn techniques such as measuring, layering, shading, blending, and how to use the color wheel. By the end of the course, you will be able to recreate a realistic image from a reference photo. I hope you enjoy the course! No previous knowledge or skill is required... open to complete beginners.

Diane Flick

Artist & Art Teacher

Teacher

Diane Flick majored in art during college and went on to graduate school, receiving her M.A. in Humanities with a creative study emphasis in 2001. She has been making art her whole life and teaching art to children and adults since 2005. She loves to share this joy with folks who are interested in the same.

In her spare time, she enjoys being with her family and friends, playing her ukulele, dancing, and wearing wigs while talking about herself in the third person. Though truth be told, she hasn't actually tried that last bit about the third person self-talk yet. She conceived of it upon writing this and is now anxious to give it a go.
