About the workshop:
Color pencils aren’t just the simple art tools used by children. Neither are coloring books for the young. This exploration of color pencils will reveal it as a very powerful and evocative art medium. From intense and strong blocks of colour to ethereal luminous tints, the color pencil is an extremely versatile tool with great potential. For many, the medium of color pencil has a strong element of the meditative.
In this workshop you’ll learn the various techniques of color pencil handling, which also explores aspects associated with graphite pencil works such as shading and blending. Using these methods, participants can turn simple line work into vibrant full-color works or even create fully-rendered art pieces from scratch.
