Color Mixing with a Limited PaletteFriday, November 12th, 3-5 p.m. PST
Online Zoom Class

Using the Color Wheel and a limited palette of Colored pencils and some color theory, learn why some color mixes work and others do not. Create vibrant color and interesting and deep browns and grays. Get to know your pencils and how they work together and simplify your choices.

Due to the Covid 19- coronavirus my in person classes have been canceled indefinitely. I will update this information when I know current restrictions have been lifted, venues reopen, and it is safe to gather again. In the meantime, I am posting bi-weekly lessons on my Handouts page. Online Zoom classes and workshops are being scheduled  and are posted below.

Colored Pencils are a fun, safe and portable way to express oneself artistically. They are easy for the beginning artist and a meditative change of pace for the painter or graphite artist. The drawing classes focus on basics of color theory and color application and the elements of botanical illustration while focusing on the flora and fruit of the season.
