Charcoal drawings on cave walls were the first recorded art and visual record of man. Charcoal has transcended man’s history, and is still a popular medium for drawing, even today. Charcoal is broken down into three distinct types, Compressed Charcoal (a charcoal powder mixed with gum or wax binders to form a stick), Vine or Willow Charcoal (a long thin piece of charcoal that is the result of burning sticks in a kiln without air), and Charcoal Pencils (powdered charcoal mixed with oil, gum, or wax binders that is put into a wood pencil barrel). Learn how to master this ancient medium with Jerry’s free video art lessons that delve into charcoal drawings, with hints and tips specifically for charcoal, from great professional instructors!
