Susan Goodall promotes coloured pencil art in Whitby

The UKCPS Blog is always pleased to highlight the initiatives of individual members in promoting the coloured pencil cause!

Susan Goodall, a UKCPS member living in Whitby in North Yorkshire, displayed her work and spent 10 days demonstrating how to draw using coloured pencils at her local tourist centre in December. Susan's particular interest is in finding new ways to work a medium and consequently she chose to demonstrate colour pencil work on velour paper.

As Susan explains, as well as providing her with some personal benefits, her marketing project has helped to generate interest in membership of the UKCPS.
I have publicised the event in my local newspaper, and have had lots of interest, and given out lots of UKCPS forms. So far I have two people interested in commissioning me for work, a request from the a writer on the local newspaper to do a days art tuition for her and she will do a full page spread with pictures on her days experience, an invite to demonstrate my cp work at the local art society meeting, and an invite to have a stand at a local Rotary Club Fair day.
What a result!
