4 Week | Drawing: Color Pencil

*Students will purchase their own materials and should expect to spend $30-70.


Class Description:

This 4-week class will introduce students to techniques that will elevate their use of color pencil. Students will learn how to burnish the paper, mix colors, and see and match colors. The class will look at the instructor’s drawings, the works of CJ Hendry, as well as Neil Gall's "Ruin" as inspiration.


What to Expect:

During this class, we will mostly be learning and making. The instructor will show you inspiration drawings, demo technique, and then allow time, guidance, and support to create on your own. This class is for beginners as well as artists who have never been taught colored pencil technique before. No previous experience required. We will mostly be making small experiments, but the last couple of classes will allow you time to begin creating your own works based on what you've learned.



Class 1: Look at inspiration drawings, practice burnishing and value, and color studies inspired by Wes Anderson color palettes.

Class 2. Practice matching colors, blending, and burnishing using Colorado's autumn leave colors as inspiration and guidance.

Class 3: Defining a form using colored pencil and color theory and begin personal artworks.

Class 4: Work day for your own drawings.


Class Cancellation Policy:

If a class or workshop needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather or teacher illness, a “make-up” day will be scheduled on a FRIDAY or SATURDAY as the educator’s schedule allows.
