Colored Pencil on Colored Paper Class
May 1, 8, and 15 from 12:30 to 2:30
This 3 week workshop class will teach you techniques to using colored pencil on colored paper while we work step by step on a dolphin project together. This is not an open studio or loosely structured class, so while we will have lots of fun, students can expect a structured and informative class. As part of the class fee, students will receive a spiral workbook that contains information for working on colored paper as well as a step by step tutorial of the class project. While it is not required, it is strongly preferred that any students taking this workshop first take Mandy's beginner colored pencil class. At the end of this class, students will understand strategies to using colored pencils on colored paper and how to render a realistic looking dolphin. This class has a minimum requirement of 3 students.
Supplies - Students need to bring the following Prismacolor Premier pencils (all found in the 72 count box or they can be ordered open stock): Black, Indigo Blue, 70% Warm Grey, 20% Warm Grey, Cloud Blue, Imperial Violet, Mulberry, Ginger Root, White, 20% Cool Grey, 50% Cool Grey, 70% Cool Grey, Light Cerulean Blue, and the Prismacolor Premier Colorless Blender. Students also need to bring an eraser, an artist tote or clip board, and a handheld pencil sharpener. The instructor will provide a workbook for each student, graphite transfer paper, and the colored paper needed for the project.
