This course is perfect for those who want to learn the beginning skills of colored pencils as an art medium. The first class, “Basics,” provides information about colored pencils that are important to know before you get started using this tool. The instructor will explain which colored pencils she uses and why, as well as recommendations on paper and tools. You will learn how to choose and mix pencils to create lifelike colors. The second class, “Practice,” contains demonstrations on how to apply colored pencils including shading, layering, and blending techniques to equip you with the necessary skills to create future artwork.
All supplies will be provided, with a discussion on materials individuals may want to purchase. Students may bring their own set of colored pencils if they wish. Lunch will not be supplied. Please feel free to bring a bagged lunch or something to snack on.
Paulette Krakowski has over 40 years of experience as a graphic artist, art director, instructor, and gallery owner. In 2022 she became a Juried Artist of the Arts & Craftsmen Guild of the Roycroft Campus in watercolor and colored pencil.
