In this Colored Pencil Drawing class:

  • We’ll start by learning to create clean lines and edges, then move on to laying in fields of color.
  • You’ll learn how to create a variety of complex colors starting from just a few pencils, using blending and layering effects.
  • You’ll learn how to draw simple forms and still lifes.
  • You’l learn how to use color to create gentle or dramatic effects.
  • We’ll then move on to more complex images, such as trees, mountains and simple landscapes in colored pencil.
  • Plus, you’ll learn several ways to blend the colors beautifully after laying them down on the paper, using either a blending pencil or the combination of Q-tips and mineral (baby) oil.

These are not your kids’ colored pencils, or the ones you used in grade school.  They glide on to the paper to layer and blend in drawing and painting styles, and can be used for interesting effects on a variety of drawing surfaces.  Anyone can learn to use them, with a little guidance and instruction.

Colored Pencil Drawing is a class for beginners.  Everyone is welcome.
