This relaxed online class will introduce you to the beauty of wax-based colored pencils and the vibrant artwork you can create with them. Learn about blending styles, color layering effects, color mixing, value relationships, and pencil strokes for rendering realistic images. Emphasis will be on colored pencil techniques and classwork will include a variety of step-by-step instruction of colored pencil drawing exercises and projects. Students will receive both group and individualized instruction to develop at their own pace. As we explore this exciting medium, this class will grow your comprehension of light, color, and shading. Discover the richness and vibrancy of this often overlooked fine art medium. Basic drawing skills are helpful, but not required.
