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 on the elements of botanical illustration.
Learn to mix and blend colors and use the pencils to create tone and hue. Classes cover a variety of techniques including blending, burnishing and impressed line while focusing on the flora and fruit of the season.
