Check out what Seug-Eun has to say about the club:

"I haven't worked with colored pencils much, but I really like and admire artists who use them and their drawings.

Meanwhile, I saw Emily's Imaginarium art club challenge on Instagram and applied. It was my first time joining a challenge like this, so I was kinda afraid to do it, but it turned out to be the best decision of the last year.

Emilie generously tells us about her own skills. She also provides small tips (like tracing a drawing to new paper) and a mindset for work. Thanks to her, I was able to get used to drawing with colored pencils and develop my skills. It was another pleasure to meet friends who like illustration and talk about it together. I felt like I was back in school as a student because I could complete a common task and talk to others about it. I was happy to have the space and people to share with about colored pencil drawings. Whenever I watched exhibitions or read books, I wanted to share them with the members, so I posted them on the app.


I've been just looking at other artists' amazing works for a long time. However, through this challenge, I started drawing and regained my confidence by working little by little almost every day. It seems that the next challenge will be even more interesting. I want to continue to participate in this fun challenge."

"I'm in no way a professional illustrator so I was afraid I couldn't not follow the group, but Émilie shared her knowledge through concise and clear demonstrations, making it simple to follow step by steps."
