This three day intensive color pencil workshop goes beyond the pencil and onto the page. This class is for students who want to try or expand their experience and knowledge of this medium. Each day will feature a different lesson:
Day 1: Paper- we will be exploring different surfaces, textures and middle tone.
Day 2: Watercolor and color pencil- we will work with watercolor pencils layering with wax pencils.
Day 3: Preparing and executing a drawing from background to foreground using layering and masking.
