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!)
Capturing the likeness of a person in a portrait is a challenging yet important part of learning to draw people. In this workshop, students will learn drawing techniques through demonstrations by the instructor and then apply what they've learned by drawing real-life models. There will be a strong focus on proportion, structure, and value (lights and darks).
In this one day, open studio type workshop, bring your medium of choice and capture a bit of Sci-Fi history in this one time opportunity to draw from Todd Still’s Star Wars Collection. Helmets from some of your favorite characters like vader, fett, skywalker, tie fighter pilot, biker scout, gunner, plus the evolution of 4 generations of troopers and some weaponry. We always start out in sketch mode, look for basic shapes/forms, and then bring our drawings into focus with shading and details. Background movies will be playing along with some toys for atmosphere and reference. We won’t stop you from wearing your favorite Episode! Open Studio monitored by Ahl Sundar, the Bounty Hunter…so watch it! Ages 10 – 110
