Colored Pencil Boot Camp 

For Beginners & Beyond!

New Date to be Announced

New to Colored Pencils or Just Want a Refresher?

This Class is for YOU!

You could spend months learning all this on your own... or learn it all from Jan in one workshop! Spend just 3.5 hours with Jan and make your very own CP Reference Manual stuffed with all the info you need to be well armed to tackle any colored pencil project.


Not sure where to start? Stuck in a rut? Now’s the time to break free! Discover the terms, techniques, and tools you need to succeed with colored pencils. You might feel like a CP fledgling right now, but Jan’s tips will have you flying with the CP eagles in no time.


As Jan covers pencil brands, paper choices, tracing paper, paper stumps, sharpeners, erasers, pencil strokes, lightfastness, blending and too many more topics to mention, YOU will be creating your own book of colored pencil facts and tips for you to refer to forever.


Ka-POW! Knock out those beginner jitters with help from Jan. She loves sharing her CP superpowers. This class is the farthest thing from a lecture - it's participatory, invaluable, and FUN! After this workshop, you’ll be ready to start using your new skills in your own colored pencil art.

About Jan Fagan

Jan Fagan lives and works as a full-time artist in the Pacific Northwest. Her heart and her art are happiest creating in her imaginative and illustrative style. Although she does love to create with colored pencils alone, she also enjoys mixing them with other mediums or trying them on unusual surfaces like copper and wood. Teaching is as rewarding as creating her art and she has led workshops in beginner colored pencil, character design, basic drawing skills and creativity. Her work has been featured in the Ann Kullberg magazine Color, CP Treasures as well as other publications.

What they are saying about Jan's last workshop...

"Great Hands On Instruction! Jan gives clear and concise instructions so you can follow along and do each exercise with her. Lots of information on where to continue your colored pencil journey too. Looking forward to playing with each technique."
– Cecilia B.

"A Must Have For Beginners! This workshop will teach a beginner everything they need to know to have fun drawing with colored pencils. It's full of interesting tips I wish I'd known from the word go instead of trudging through countless not-so-professional YouTube videos and Jan is a wonderfully clear and concise teacher." 
– Francoise F.

"Jan Is An Excellent Teacher! She is skilled at checking-in with her students to see if they need clarification, additional info, alternative directions which fit their learning style and when they need cheering on. Her pace matches students needs-always is willing to answer questions or hear a student’s concern about their individual skill and able to move a class forward with new techniques. Her love of art and real caring that her students learn and excel, is strongly woven throughout the class. Thank you Jan!" 
– Deb
