Introduction to Drawing Pets in Coloured Pencil

June 19, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


Saturdays  June 19 to July 10.  This introductory workshop on drawing pets with colour pencils gives students a good foundation with techniques for drawing dogs and cats to wild animals. Assess colour options and learn layering, details of fur short to long, light, depth and fur clumping. Additionally, we’ll also look at the details of eyes, nose, ears and mouth and how to do whiskers effectively. Students will be given tips on how to draw animals accurately as well as guidelines on materials, papers, extra tools, and more. All in all, this will be a fun class full of tips and tricks while discovering new techniques in drawing. No experience is necessary.

This is an online course. Students will get access to online feedback, bonus videos and information sheets to help them move forward with their drawing.

Instructor: Jeannette Sirois is a full-time, practicing visual artist working with colour pencil and graphite on paper. Sirois has created work for public installations, gallery exhibitions, and private and public collections.
