Merry Christmas Bunny For You

There are so many ways to use your art pencils for the holidays. You can design your own gift tags, tree ornaments, or greeting cards. You can even draw something special and frame it as a gift. Remember to bring your creativity into this wonderful season. You will enjoy it so much more. I've recorded this video demonstration to show you how quick and easy it can be to personalize your items. I am including here the pattern for the little bunny. Please feel free to download him. He is large enough to be used for a greeting card. Or you could print him smaller for gift tags or ornaments. Feel free to add embellishments like more greenery or more ornaments or perhaps some collage elements.

I hope you enjoy him.

Want to learn more about drawing and creating your own pencil art?  Try out my online pencil art learning community at Wind and Honey Classes  We are having a great time there and my students are progressing so well.

I used Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils for this drawing.

Announcing Creative Pencils

I am so pleased to announce the grand opening of Creative Pencils. Creative Pencils is a ning site that I have created for the presentation of my video drawing classes.  The Classes begin with a 10 lesson series called Pencils 101.  These beginning 10 lessons will lay a solid foundation for many pencil adventures in the future.  After the completion of Pencils 101 the students move into the monthly lessons.  These lessons are more challenging and continue to help the student progress in their drawing skills.

Once the student is well grounded with the graphite pencil, the lessons progress into the various types of colored pencils.  The site also has studio groups that are like little coffee houses where the students can gather to discuss topics like art journaling, artist trading cards, or how to incorporate their drawings into their mixed media collage.  They often discuss supplies and other practical matters.  It is a fun and inspiring place to learn in a positive atmosphere that generates success.

CP is a subscription site under the umbrella site Eclectic Art Studio created by Zinnia Galliher of Zinnia's Treasures and Roses on My Table. This is the beginning of a great adventure. I hope you will come by and take a look.

Creative Pencils workshops have been moved to Wind and Honey Classes.
