DRAWING WITH COLOURED PENCIL

Coloured pencil is more than just colouring inside of the lines; it’s a way of creating some dynamic images and uniquely wonderful effects. We will cover the basics of working with coloured pencils. Mixing and blending with pencils instead of paint. The art principles are the same as any in any other medium but the application process is more controllable and has an immediate result. You will be introduced to some different applications like burnishing, layering, glazing, impressions and dusting. We will use simple subjects and concentrate on these techniques, colour theory and values. It does take a little longer to achieve a finished piece but you have much more control over this medium and can have a more realistic outcome. This class is good for all levels.
