Jesse Lane

Dramatic Portraits in Colored Pencil

October 18, 19, 2019
10:30am - 4:30pm

Draw a dramatic, realistic portrait with award-winning artist, Jesse Lane.

Learn the secrets of turning colored pencil into a Fine Art medium…. creating works as rich and nuanced as any oil painting.


Jesse will guide you step by step, sharing his signature style… including special tips for creating nuanced skin tones, dynamic lighting and compelling composition. 


Classes are thorough as Jesse breaks down complex rendering into simple steps. Everyone works on the same portrait as Jesse gives detailed demos and also works with students one-on-one. 


The workshop includes:


  • Large Screen Demos:  A video camera on Jesse’s drawing board is projected to a large screen so students can easily follow along as they draw.


  • One-on-One Instruction: After each demo, Jesse visits each participant, offering encouragement, answering questions, explaining technique and giving tips to each individual student.

All skill levels are welcome!
  • In addition to group and one-on-one instruction, Jesse provides high-quality instructional materials, including a reference photo, a glossy tutorial booklet, and the image already outlined on drawing paper.  Workbooks also have a complete list of colors for each section. 


  • Students are required to bring their own drawing supplies, and a materials list will be distributed well in advance of the workshop.

Take your art to the next level as everyone shares their love of colored pencil in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

Capacity is limited, so sign up today!
