One Day Coloured Pencil Workshops

This series of workshops begins with the basics of coloured pencil techniques and then gives students the opportunity to work on projects, to try out different surfaces and “paintings”. Each day is filled with exercises, tips and demonstrations that build and expand on the previous class. Lots of fun and laughter makes that creative process a great learning experience. The cost of each workshop is $75, which includes paper, coffee, tea and snacks. Classes are held on Saturdays from 9 am to 4 pm and spaces are limited, so register early to confirm your space.  Supplies required: a set of  Prismacolor Premier pencils (minimum  48), kneaded eraser,  regular eraser (white or pink), pencil for drawing ( HB), a soft brush ( large make-up brush from Dollarama works well!) , pencil sharpener, your lunch and a sense of adventure!

One Day Studio Workshop

The Studio Workshop Series was created for graduates of Allison’s series of one day Coloured Pencil Workshops. For those who have explored the coloured pencil techniques taught in Parts One to Four, this is your opportunity to further develop your talents through Allison’s mentoring.

You will bring your own project to Allison’s studio or she can provide material. She will coach, monitor, and encourage you as you create a “painting” from a subject that you have chosen. Every class begins with an exercise. The participants in the Studio Workshop will be limited to eight so you will receive very personalized and tailored lessons from Allison. Much laughter and fun at no extra charge!! The cost of this workshop is $70.
