Class Experience

We will practice using artist-quality colored pencils to blend, shade, and create realistic textures and forms.  Students will learn how to use color theory and build the layers of their drawing to create richer and more nuanced drawings.
I've taught drawing classes for many years in school; these are great foundational techniques that developing artists can use to bring richness and depth to their colored pencil drawings!
