Classes and Workshops



Coming up this Fall:

Drawing Autumn Colors
The Red Barn,  Pt. Reyes Station
in Person, Friday, October 13,  10-2

Autumn is the perfect time to explore colored pencil techniques with all the beauty of the changing leaf colors, seed pods, gourds and berries. Their unique colors provide the opportunity to practice mixing and layering color. Learn to create rich reds, browns and purples. We will explore a variety of colored pencil techniques including layering, blending, and burnishing.

Online Classes:

I continue to do online bi-weekly 1.5 hour zoom classes and am scheduling one in person class a month at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts and seasonally at Pt. Reyes and the El Dorado Nature Center in Long Beach and the Laguna de Santa Rosa

Contact me if you are interested in joining us.
