Anyone can draw. In this workshop, Sydney artist and illustrator Carmen Hui will guide you through the different stages of starting an original pet portrait using coloured pencils with a limited colour palette.

We will talk about how to find a composition and layout style that works for you, tricks of the trade, choosing the right colour palette, using the grid as a tool and layering to build depth.

By the end of the workshop each student will be able to take home their very own custom pet portrait and a new found interest in pencil drawing.
