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.
