Charcoal is known as one of the oldest drawing materials, and dates back over 30,00 years. Charcoal is a form of dry medium, composed of ground organic materials. Artists use charcoal to create depth, and brilliant bold studies. Charcoal can be easy blended by a tool or simply your finger, and is a great medium for both amateurs and professional artists.
