Grow your skills in drawing, creativity, and individual expression and create beautiful colored pencil paintings!
Melinda will cover a variety of basics, including composition, color theory, and several colored pencil techniques — focusing on mixing, blending, and burnishing methods.
Students will be encouraged to develop their own styles and experiment with various pencil types, papers, and surfaces. Enjoy individual instruction as you work on class projects and ones of your own choosing.
Colored pencils are a versatile, portable, and non-toxic medium that are among the least expensive of art materials. There are no brushes to clean or paints to keep from drying out. With practice and the right technique, they can mimic the results of various other media.
Artists working at all levels are welcome although some experience in drawing would be helpful. Bring your own materials, and check the materials list for recommendations.
