Autumn is the perfect time to explore colored pencil techniques with all the beauty of the changing leaf colors. Their unique colors provide the opportunity to practice mixing and layering color. Learn to create rich reds, browns, and purples. We will work on drawing, creating veins and edges, and experiment with different ways to use under-painting to simplify to enhance our work.
Gather some leaves and come and draw!
All drawing levels are welcome. A supply list will be provided.
