More About This Experience

The most basic art form and one of the oldest forms of art, the pencil is the undisputed elder in the art world, not only helping to lay the foundation for almost every piece of art, whether its a painting, sculpture, carving or just simply concept sketches. It is itself an art form too, being the perfect instrument to bring out depth, gradient and complex lighting all in one colour. Try learning it for yourself under the tutelage of Mr Svay Em, one of the most talented artists in Cambodia fiercely passionate to his craft.
