How to hold and sharpen the crayon
How to blend
How to layer
Hand Movement techniques

The DVD features a segment with me applying these techniques while drawing Elvis with crayons! My crayon masterpieces, created within a 35 year span of my crayon art journey are the key to my teaching fine art with crayons!
The Jeffrey Robert Crayon Art Techniques Workbook Download accompanies the DVD but is a valuable tutorial that can be used independently of the DVD.
Contains easy to follow hands-on exercises that will properly train the muscles of the hands and eyes to work together. It involves careful detail applications in layering colors, hand pressures and creating gradients. Includes instructions, examples, application sheets and an outline drawing.

March 2007, Jan Robson in the UK says: "The DVD is fabulous...very fascinating indeed."
July 2007, Bobbi Hancock in Virginia says: "I just want to say thank you for sending me your video. It is wonderful. I can't begin to tell you how great your art is. I also want to thank you for making it possible others can learn from you. I hope you will continue to publish your technique and your work."
December 2007 Karen Marhall in Kentucky says: I watched Jeffrey's Techniques DVD. I'm quite impressed. No wonder his crayon drawings are so beautiful as it is evident from watching and thus far that he spends a great deal of time insuring that his drawings are well covered. I'm a senior citizen still having to work for a living to make ends meet but I'm still a kid at heart and remember the smell of those crayons! :)Thank you so very much for sharing your artistic expertise with the rest of us wannabe artists. I'm 63 and still hope to create something of value to leave to my children. Maybe it will be done with crayons thanks to you and your generosity.

I am an art teacher and have always felt an affinity to crayons. I argue with my peers that art can be taught with nothing more than a box of crayons (yes sculpture and painting). Jeffrey Robert has gone a long way to affirm my position. My students are already beginning to use his techniques and are light years ahead of students of the same age groups from surrounding schools. Thanks so much for the inspiration you have given me to inturn instill in others.

Aloha Jeffrey! We met about 16 years ago at a Teacher's conference in Dallas, and I bought your video (on VHS.....I'm going to have to update that! lol). Since then, I have been sharing your beautiful work and techniques with my K-12 students I am so excited to see how turned on my students get after seeing the possibilities....and then go on to create some absolutely amazing artwork! Hope you don't mind, but you may have some competition in the Art World in the future! Isn't it amazing how such a simple media can create unbelievable results! Thanks for sharing your inspiration with the world! Mahalo nui!
Endorsement June 8, 2001 Wendy Warner, Curriculum Director, Argyle ISD, Texas
For many years Jeffrey Robert has presented his crayon art techniques to children, adults, educators and aspiring artists to promote a new genre of creating fine art with ordinary crayons. The video “A Shiny Red Apple” evolved as a visual tool to help the student learn of the delicate hand pressure and hand movements used in a step-by-step process of application to completion. The certificate below was awarded to educators completing a required public school in-service course in which segments of the video “A Shiny Red Apple was used. The success of the course was gauged by the unanimous comment: “This is the most fun that I have ever had in attending an in-service.”
Endorsement July 10, 2000, Carol Marshall, President Quality Education Systems
In the creative arts, Jeffrey's work stands alone; he has developed an entirely new genre for the artist's creative process. Quality Education Systems whole-heartedly endorses Jeffrey Robert, The Crayon Artist, for his unique artistic vision and the process by which he shares that vision with students. I believe Jeffrey's work has the potential to return a tremendous gift to the world of teaching and learning, making the business of drawing a natural part of the learning process once again.

Endorsement July 2000, Judith Bingham, National Speaker and Advocate for Children with Autism on the subject of teaching children through art-based literacy
"Jeffrey is a most outstanding and unique artist in that he is one of two people in the world (referring to Jeffrey and his father, Don Marco) who has introduced us to crayon art. It is his technique with crayons that has not been duplicated. I've watched the teachers delve into the crayons and the black line drawings mesmerized by their own skill after Jeffrey's lesson. I've seen the children's self esteem sore after Jeffrey walks around and comments on their work. Thank you, Jeffrey for starting America Coloring!
