Hi There!


This is an invitation to plug into the Beech Tree Studio Community-

a brand new online platform where we artists are free to experiment with creative applications of colored pencil!


It takes less than a minute to join and together we’re sharing our artwork, techniques, inspiration and solutions to artsy problems.


Come join the discussion!

Only six colored pencils?

Yes, you read that right. Spend 6 hours with 6 pencils and create this charmingly beautiful piece!

You have tons of pencils, but what if you need just 6? Let Andria show you how to drastically simplify your palette without losing realism or beautiful hues.

Using just Non-Photo Blue, Process Red, Canary Yellow, Black, White, and Verithin Black, Andria will show you how to create this charming drawing in class.

"Perhaps the mission of an artist is to interpret beauty to people - the beauty within themselves."

- Langston Hughes -

Meet the Teachers

Beech Tree Studio in Three Locations

 I have always appreciated the distance that many people travel to the class in Geneva, but when a particularly brutal Chicago winter kept artists home, I realized it was time to bring the studio to the artists. 

Beech Tree Studio is happy to introduce a stable of colored pencil instructors who mentor new students, and challenge those who are already accomplished artists.  And while each offers individual direction on technique and color, we all encourage that unique quality that only the  artist  can bring to his own work.
