Workshop Description

The workshop begins with an introduction to colored pencils including basic colored pencil terms, learning about the various grades of pencils, and different types of paper.

I will demonstrate fundamental techniques such as layering, blending, and pencil control, as well as different ways to hold a pencil and put marks on paper.

Students will see how these methods work in practice with two drawing exercises, then practice on a drawing they bring with them.

What to Bring to the Workshop

Supplies. A supply list is available from the gallery.

A drawing to work on. This can be something brand new, or a work in progress to practice the lessons on. A line drawing on drawing paper is preferable, so the student is able to practice layering from the beginning.

What to Expect from the Workshop

Expect to have fun while you learn (that is the best way to learn, after all.)

Expect to get personal feedback from me, and to meet other artists interested in colored pencils and colored pencil art.

It is my goal to give you the basic skills to take home and make your own great artwork.
