This is not a multi-session class; all sessions are separate and priced at $25 each.

Join expert color pencil artist Dianne Pinkelman for an introductory course in working with colored pencils to either create original artwork, or bring more beauty to coloring book pages. This class is designed for those who would like to discover new ways to color: learn how to shade, blend, and gain skill with the medium of colored pencil to achieve more stunning results. You'll also discover how different papers affect the color and texture of one's work.

If creating original artwork, please bring acid-free white paper, an inexpensive 1" brush for dusting (like a chip brush), pencil sharpener, Matte Magic Scotch Tape, colored pencils (whatever you have at home, but higher quality pencils are recommended), white plastic eraser, regular graphite pencil, and reference photo. Prefer to work from a coloring book? Then you should bring colored pencils, a coloring book page, matte tape, a 1" brush, and white eraser. All materials available at The Art Supply Depo with the exception of Matte Scotch Tape.

Dianne worked with and instructed others on how to use colored pencils for decades. Absolute beginner to intermediate welcome.

Please register as soon as you plan on attending. Classes that don't reach the minimum number of students required will be canceled 48 hours before the first day of class. Last minute registrations are accepted if class minimum is met and space allows.
