The Pencils Series

Pencils Series 101, 201, 301

One of the wonderful things about learning in the online format is that you can move along at your own pace. Sometimes you will run into a lesson that creates a bit more challenge for you and you need to just stop and sit there for a while. And sometimes life gets in the way and creates a slight detour for a few days. In a group class setting the group must move on whether you are ready for it or not. So, it is nice that here in our internet drawing world you can wait when you need to wait and soar when you are ready to soar.


The series of Pencils workshops are designed to build a solid foundation for your drawing skills.  Pencils 101 begins at the very beginning helping you to learn to see with an artist’s eye and develop your skills in line work and basic shading.  The lessons move quickly into shading.  These 5 lessons are the foundation and first step toward creating beautiful drawings. I start these lessons gently for the most inexperienced would be pencil artist. You will begin by working through some right-brained exercises that will open up the world of drawing for you.

HOW DO I CHOOSE WHICH PENCILS WORKSHOP IS RIGHT FOR ME?

Any task is better accomplished with a solid foundation. The basic Pencils Series includes 3 workshops, Pencils 101, 201, & 301. They are a succession of lessons designed to help you progress well in your drawing skills from line drawing to shading and even creative perspective.

The first few lessons contain specific drawing exercises that may seem odd but are meant to change the way you see the same things that you have been looking at for years. This change of perception can happen quickly but not without intentional exercises. So we have to approach it in an unusual way. These drawing exercises have been proven to be effective in the test of time and with hundreds of my students. I encourage everyone to begin with the Pencils Series.

Although you have the freedom to make your own choice, skipping the foundation lessons can lead to frustration if you try to do projects for which you are not ready, resulting in disappointment. Please give yourself the time to get established with some basic skills before jumping into the deeper water. The right-brained lessons really do bring quick progression in your skills and you will be so much more pleased in the long run.

Each of the Pencils Workshops 101, 201, and 301 contains a series of five progressive lessons meant to be taken sequentially.There is a total of 15 lessons in 3 workshops.
The lessons are numbered from #1 to #15.
Pencils 101 Workshop includes lessons 1 through 5.

Pencils 201 Workshop includes lessons 6 through 10.

Taking all three Workshops in sequence, and therefore all 15 lessons in order, is suggested but not required. If you begin with Pencils 201, you will notice that it begins with lesson 6. Similarly, Pencils 301 begins with lesson 11.
