Try something new – an intuitive approach to drawing. Have some fun and take a break from perfectionist realism. Learn how the elements and principles of design apply to all visual art, and then explore how to use them to create a non-objective drawing which still has meaning. Open to all drawing media - colored pencil, watercolor pencil, pastel, pen or marker.
Water soluble colored pencils combine the precision and control of pencil drawing with the fluid possibilities of watercolor paint. They’re especially useful for travelers and plein air artists, great for sketchbooks and journals. Come explore the many ways these versatile drawing tools can be used—wet or dry, alone or for mixed media. Derwent, leading makers and innovators in this fine art medium, will provide all the pencils for use in this class. (And you’ll get to keep some too!)
