Color Pencil Journaling

Helen Shafer Garcia
9:00 - 4:30
Friday Oct 22

[back to quicklinks]
$ 170  

Colored pencils are such good therapy. Pressing down pure color on smooth paper
leads to endless good vibes. We’ll combine watercolors, water-soluble pens, and
colored pencils while learning clever user -friendly ways to draw. My drawing
methods will ease those ever so present inhibitions about drawing lines and
shapes. Learn how to blend beautiful color layers and create dark and light
mixtures. You’ll be prompted to create small poems that will be collaged in a
clever way throughout the works.

Supplies provided by the Instructor: I will provide photo references, and other tools to use while we work.

Supply fee $5.00 payable to instructor at beginning of clas includes:
Tombow pens, Chartpak pens, gesso, paper text for
