Date: Saturdays, March 14-April 18 (no class April 11), 2020, 5 sessions
Time: 10:15 AM-1:15 PM
Medium: Colored Pencil
Colored pencil is a fun, forgiving, and versatile medium that is easy for the beginning artist, and a refreshing change for watercolor painters or graphite artists. As you learn how to use colored pencils to portray plant subjects, the class will cover basics of the medium and colored pencil techniques including layering, blending, and building saturation with luminosity, while incorporating the observation techniques and elements of botanical illustration.
All levels are welcome. For those who are experienced, work at your own pace with plenty of guidance and individual attention.
