Colored Pencils are an exciting way to “paint”.  They are easy to take along with you, clean, and uncomplicated.   With the versatility of artist quality colored pencils, beautiful art can be in your future.   In this foundational workshop, Elizabeth will teach you her approach in layering colors to bring subjects to vibrant life.  You will learn how to use colored pencils with results that look like paint.   
The five lessons of this workshop will cover laying the color down correctly, color theory, shading with color, and blending. 


You will need to draw on Drawing paper and/or Bristol Board Vellum paper. If these are unavailable to you, look for a paper with some tooth to it. Hot pressed watercolor paper also works well with colored pencils and could be used for these lessons too.

Recommended Blenders: Derwent Blender, Lyra Splender Blender, or  Derwent Burnisher
