Personalized Art Instruction

Personalized art instruction in colored pencil is available at three levels: online art courses, personalized art lessons, and personalized art critiques.

Online Colored Pencil Courses

Art Instruction - Online Colored Pencil CoursesThe Online Colored Pencil course is art instruction designed for anyone who wants to learn how to use colored pencils and wants the personalized attention of the artist, but who doesn’t have a lot of available time. The course allows you to work at your own pace to complete one or two drawings. You choose the subjects. You choose the method or technique you want to learn, and Carrie provides instruction, encouragement, and assistance.

Personalized Art Lessons by Email

Personalized Art Lessons by email on the topic of your choice via email. They differ from the online colored pencil course in that each lesson can involve a different topic. Having problems with a current project? Need help with a specific technique or tool? Try our personalized art lessons by email.

Personalized Art Crits

If you don’t need classes, courses or lessons, but want more specific help, a personalized art crit fits the bill. You provide your reference photo and your drawing, and describe your problem, and I will give you specific instructions and tips for overcoming the problem. General critiques are also available.
