Online Colored Pencil Workshops

Learn from the comfort of your own home!
Whether you want to better understand color, improve your colored pencil portraits, or are a beginner eager to speed up your learning curve - we have an online colored pencil webinar for YOU!  

"The digital Zoom workshop was, in my opinion, great, even advantageous. We received the same great instruction from Ann Kullberg that I envisioned. I learned so much about creating skin tones and the details of making eyes come to life! It was so totally worth the the time and effort invested."

- Melodie L., Tier 2 Portraits Workshop with Ann

"The workshop transformed my two regular days in two rich and passionate days. Because Ann is passionate and generous so her teaching has such a fresh style that I am thinking to take it again."

- Alessandra T., Tier 1 Online Workshop with Ann

Young Emiko with Ann Kullberg

When:  July 20 & 22 (8:00 am - 1:00 pm Pacific Time)
Instructor: Ann Kullberg
Cost: $125 

About the class: It’s a portrait class – with lots of hair!  That’s right, if you’ve taken Ann’s Tammy Workshop, you know that hair is barely covered in class, if at all, because we’re so busy working on layer after layer of skin tones. The beauty of Emiko is that her skin tones are mostly very light and are finished up quite quickly, leaving lots of time for working on that thick, lustrous hair and those liquid eyes.  Formerly, the workshop was only available on one of Ann’s Cruise Workshops, but with cruises on hold, we’ve decided to bring it to you live as a Pajama Class!
