Below is a video that explains more about the workshop and how you will render the final project


      About This Drawing Workshop:

      In this class you will learn how to create the smooth, delicate shading required for the flowers petals as well as how to increase contrast to make the drawing "pop".

      • All supplies are included so
        there is absolutely nothing you will need to bring except your desire to learn. 

      •  Limited Class Size. My classes have a maximum of 20 students so everyone can get plenty of individual instruction. 

      •  We will use charcoal, graphite and carbon pencils along with my blending techniques to create the soft, smooth, delicate shading of the petals against a dark background. 

      •  You'll learn the unique methods I use to keep the dark background from smearing into the white petals. 

      •  After this course you will know the techniques necessary create more depth, dimension and contrast in your drawings - regardless of the subject. Reference photos will be discussed in depth, and you will learn how to identify and solve potential problems on your future drawings. 

      •  You are encouraged to bring examples of previous work for me to evaluate privately. These one-on-one sessions will take place at the end of class each day for those interested.  

      •  You also get access to my online tutorial "Realistic Drawing with Light, Texture, and Contrast" in the member’s area of my website. 

      •  The learning continues. After you get home and start using all the new techniques you have learned, you can post your artwork to my "Members Only" drawing forum along with any questions you may have. You can even email me some of your work to be featured on the previous students artwork page of my website. 

      •  For students who require lodging, I've negotiated a discounted rate for rooms at the workshop hotel. Your discount code will be included in your Confirmation Email.

Previous Student Comments

"Awesome! The atmosphere of camaraderie and friendly encouragement is set by JD. What a nice guy. Plus, he knows stuff and shares whatever he knows. It's fun and informative. I want to attend more!
Joyce, TX 

"I've always been interested in pencil drawing and really wanted to be a part of one of JD's workshops, but as a beginner, I was afraid I wasn't good enough. I'm so glad I finally did this. JD taught me more in 1 hour than I have every thought possible. He is a great teacher and a friendly critic."
Kim, OH 

"Thank you for such a great workshop! As a teacher, I've been to many workshops in a variety of media and you by far out do all of them. The pre-workshop videos were extremely helpful. I'm so glad you provided them. You are an excellent teacher and you took me to new heights. I'm confident that I can now get the "punch" my drawings needed, and I can't wait to take another workshop to learn even more. I'll definitely be promoting your workshops to my colleagues at school as well as through the Missouri Art Ed Association."
Quentin, MO

"This class was exactly what I needed to take me to the next level. JD's teaching style is so encouraging for artists of any level. Everything I hoped to learn in this class was delivered. I had such a pleasant and satisfying experience. Thank You, JD Hillberry- it was great!"
Melanie, ID 

"The workshop was wonderful! Full of great information and with a light heartedness in the classroom. I loved learning the new techniques and having an opportunity to practice them with JD's personal, friendly guidance. Not only is JD's work inspiring, but also the way he engages the students and shows interest in their development as an artist."
Anne, AZ

"I had the most helpful, fun, learning experience I have ever had in my life. I have learned sooo
much it's unbelievable. I loved this workshop!"
Zeinab, TX 

"For many years, I have harbored a deep love of drawing. Due to a fear of my lack of knowledge and experience, I rarely if ever attempted to draw. I ran across JD's work on the internet and knew that I could learn so much from his workshops. Within the first 2-3 hours, I learned more than I had ever believed possible. By the end of the 4 days, it was apparent by my work how much I had learned... stuff that would have taken me years to figure out on my own!"
Maree, UT 

"This workshop was great for all skill levels and all ages. The challenge to stretch existing skills was given with clear and concise direction. JD is very articulate and does not waste words. Every sentence is gold!"
Marlene, CO 

"I appreciated that you critiqued everyone equally. Sometimes instructors focus more on the more "talented" participants. Your comments were also very specific, which is extremely helpful."
Cheryl, TX

"What I found most helpful was the individual critique of my artwork. I knew it was lacking, but didn't know what to do to make my drawings look more dimensional. I now have the knowledge and tools to make my work so much better. The class was a fantastic experience for me and it is just what I needed to take my drawing to the next level. I learned so much and your ability to joke with the class made it that much more fun. I will be returning to take more classes. It was well worth the price!"
Cathy, UT
