About This Class

Colour Like You've Never Coloured Before!

Hello! My name is Kristy! I'm an illustrator/art teacher and lately the coolest thing I've been working on is creating colouring books. Which, is why I decided to do a short lesson on colouring, a little bit of colour theory but, mostly it will be about maximizing the range of colours and tones my students can achieve with a regular set of pencil crayons! This is a class is appropriate for beginners and anyone interested in drawing and colouring. Colouring has become more and more popular among adults, which is amazing! What a lot of people don't realize is that even when they are colouring in a colouring book there is still room to really stretch those creative muscles. 

I am going to be talking about choosing the right materials for your needs, I'll be giving you some exercises so you can practice some techniques that I'll give you and ultimately use in your final artwork. I will also be providing some free printable colouring pages in the resources section of the class. 

As an artist and an art teacher I firmly believe that everyone is a creative thinker and we all have an innate need to be makers. Unfortunately, a lot of people start believing somewhere along the way that they are not "good" enough to be artists. The reality is that there is space for all of us to be artists in our own way, which is why colouring is so amazing. It feels great to do it and it's the perfect activity if you want to dip your toe into the world of art before taking the dive.

Hope to see you in class!
