A Chat With Pencil Kings
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Aspiring artists can learn from over 60 courses created by professional artists. The courses cover both traditional and digital art techniques for beginner to intermediate level artists. Courses are broken up into easy to understand units and students can keep notes and track their progress as they work at their own pace through the lessons and practice exercises. Students also have access to a private community where they can share their work and get support and encouragement from fellow artists. Artists can also listen to weekly interviews with artists from all over the world on how they got started and how they have achieved success. This is a great way to see the different perspectives of pursuing a professional art career and helps to understand the reality of what it takes to be an artist. The biggest takeaway that listeners have said is that listening to the stories of other artists encourages them to take action and start working towards their personal goals.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Visual arts training in schools is in decline, and we wanted to give those students who are interested in developing their skills a fun, safe place where they could get the encouragement they need and learn from experts.
What do you love most about your job?
It’s really rewarding to see our members making breakthroughs with their art. Most artists struggle with confidence - they wonder if their work is good enough . It’s a huge confidence booster, when they have a win like watching a lesson and finally understanding a concept they had struggled with for a long time. This gives them that push to try new concepts and to be bold with their art… and the great thing about confidence is it just doesn’t affect one area of an artist - their new found confidence expands into all areas of their life!
