Colored Pencils II

Studio Arts Workshop

Saturday, May 30, 2020 - 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Code: 1K00AL

This one-day class is for students who have attended the Colored Pencil workshop or for those with experience who feel their skill may need a boost. More in-depth technique is introduced such as combining mediums to enhance your honed pencil skills to produce the look you desire. Versatility of this translucent medium is further discussed and practiced in class through mini projects prompted by the instructor, Lori VanKirk Schue.

A demonstration and discussion will be provided on what techniques are best used for differing purposes such as realism, abstract, impressionism and illustration, portraiture, landscape, and still-life art. Students may bring a work in progress or begin a new project in class, if desired.

Students should bring suitable colored pencil papers such as hot-pressed watercolor paper, quality drawing paper or pastel papers, colored pencils, sharpener, kneaded eraser, basic watercolor set and brush, snack or lunch.

One 4-hour session
