Draw and Learn with Jesse
Learn the secrets of turning colored pencil into a Fine Art medium…. creating works as rich and nuanced as any oil painting.
Draw a dramatic, realistic portrait with award-winning artist Jesse Lane.
All skill levels are welcome!
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:
Demos: A video camera on Jesse’s drawing board is projected to a screen so students can follow along as they draw.
One-on-One Instruction: Jesse visits each participant, offering encouragement, answering questions, explaining technique and giving tips individual to each student.
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. A materials list is 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!

What Students Are Saying
“Intense, methodical, educational and humorous! Learned a lot... laughed a lot. One-on-one teaching and final critique/guidance. Thank you, Jesse!"
Colored Pencil Society of America Dallas, Past President
"Jesse is such a delight to work with. He is so passionate and his enthusiasm is contagious. He explains the 'why' along with the 'how' to do each and every stroke. He not only takes exceptional time to give meaningful instruction, he consistently circulates around the room and gives feedback. He is so knowledgeable!"
“It was a great workshop. I learned a lot, even beyond technique: Looking and actually seeing colors differently, with new depth and intensity. What you provided went beyond other experiences I have had in workshops where techniques were demonstrated and practiced. This was unique in my experience, and I am grateful.”
