Colored Pencil Workshop Cruises


Why do we have so many repeat-cruisers on our Colored Pencil Workshop Cruises??

Because they are heaven on earth for CP artists! Loads of fun, gorgeous ships, fantastic views, great food, new friends, lots of laughs...
all topped off by wonderful instruction from master colored pencil artists.


"It was such a thrill to meet all of you and to see how you create such wonderful pieces of art with your pencils. I will keep an eye on when you are having your next cruise and will never forget this cruise and you...especially your laugh. You and your great sense of humor is one thing that helped pull the class together. Thanks for everything you did to make this great experience happen."
-Louann Stark



"Just a note to tell you how much I enjoyed the cruise!! It was my first cruise and I loved the classes and took away many ideas for the future on my art projects. The cruise was absolutely perfect and I hope sometime in the future to do another. And thanks for finding me a roommate for the cruise - it worked out wonderfully!!"

Amy Lindenberger


Ann Kullberg's Class: We'll work on a baby girl portrait project, on Stonehenge paper, emphasizing eyes, soft skin tones and simplified hair, using Ann's portrait palette and vertical line technique.

Amy Lindenberger: We will work on a close-up facial view of a tiger on dark brown paper using a dark-to-light color layering technique that begins with an application of black colored pencil in the darkest areas. We then move gradually through progressively lighter-valued colors to white. The dark brown paper provides the contrast to make the colors pop and also cuts work time significantly. This technique is featured in CP Surfaces Volume IV: A Complete Guide to Using Colored Pencils on Colored Paper.

Cynthia Knox: We will work on a new still life project from “Contemporary Still Life in Colored Pencil” to be published by Ann Kullberg in the near future.  Blending and burnishing techniques will be employed to create an elaborate, elegant cupcake for personalized birthday cards.  And who knows what might show up during our afternoon break?

Examples of Instructor's Art

Ann Kullberg

Cecile Baird

Tracy Frein


Ann Kullberg's Class: We'll work on a baby girl portrait project, on Stonehenge paper, emphasizing eyes and soft skin tones and simplified hair, using Ann's portrait palette and vertical line technique.

Cecile Baird: Cecile is the queen of drama in colored pencil still life. She is a seasoned instructor — her class will strip away any fear you have about color or contrast. Cecile will show you exactly how to create the drama effect you see in her work, in a way that can easily and successfully translate to your own artwork.

Tracy Frein: "Best workshop I've ever taken" is the usual response from students who take a class with Tracy. A wildly successful teacher, he specializes in a method of subtraction - erasing away layers on drafting film. This workshop will inspire awesome levels of creativity as you produce a gorgeous portrait on film.



Dear Ann,
Just a note to tell you again how much I learned and enjoyed the cruise.
The work shops were very well done and all of you added so much to my knowledge that it blew my mind when I got home and looked at my previous work. Everything not already framed is getting re-worked. I thought I knew how to do eyes and mouths - not so. I thought I burnished adequately - but not even close. My next project will be on sanded paper to see if I can get proficient there. I really feel good about where I am going now, thanks to all three of you. Looking forward to staying in touch and learning more.
Regards, Tony Mauro

Cruiselines are like airlines - as the cruise ship fills, the cabin prices go up and up.  We have a limited number of cabins reserved for our workshop cruises, so we can only hold the price until those reserved cabins are used up.  Long story short?  Call today to put down a deposit to hold the above quoted price for an upcoming workshop cruise!
Call 1-800-253-0116 to book the adventure of a lifetime.
