Beginning Colored Pencil – A Comprehensive Three-day Workshop

with Master Colored Pencil Artist, Linda Lucas Hardy, CPSA, CPX, TXN


How long have you had the desire to see what you could do with colored pencils but didn’t know where to begin? Wait no longer! Master colored pencil artist Linda Lucas Hardy, in this three-day workshop, is going teach you the many dimensions of this exciting, rich-hued, yet clean, very portable medium. 


Linda has designed a class to guide absolute beginners and intermediate artists to a level of producing professional, quality, colored pencil drawings/paintings through concise and “easy to digest” lessons. Not only will her workshop be fun and casual, it promises to be information-packed with plenty of demonstrations and individual attention.


Regardless of how much experience you’ve had, or what medium you’ve worked in, you will be thrilled to learn the “tricks” of the trade Linda has mastered through decades of colored pencil painting. A twenty-year veteran of teaching and workshop instruction, she has taught workshops and classes in 15 states and 2 countries, to hundreds of students aged 8 to 88.


In this workshop you will learn:

  • The most important developmental skill, gradation 

  • Layering & blending 

  • The advantages of managing pressure

  • Color mixing

  • How to fix mistakes by lifting pigment, rather than erasing 

  • About surfaces for colored pencil from sandpaper to drafting film

  • The different kinds of pencils, those that use wax and those that use oil as binders

  • How to read photographs

  • How to transfer images 

  • And much, much more


All materials, except for pencils and personal supplies, will be provided in an introductory packet. The packet will have everything you need for the workshop including paper with printed templates, instructions and photos. 


If that sounds like something you’ve been waiting for, simply sign up and get ready!
