Class Content: Are you interested in trying a new art medium? This one-day class will introduce you to the possibilities of using colored pencil to create art. It is a fun and easy-to-work-with medium which is portable and requires no other preparation beyond getting out the colored pencils and paper.
Colored pencil differs from wet media because the color is applied in layers, not mixed on a palette to achieve good depth of color. The use of the pencil, the type of paper, and the application of color with layering will all be explored in the class exercises. Handouts will be provided.
Colored pencils: Set of 36, minimum of 24.
Brands: Primsmacolor, Caran d’Ache, Faber Castell
Please do not use other brands. Jerry’s Art in Knoxville carries these brands and Art Guild members receive a discount.

Biography: As a native from Michigan I studied Fine Art and Illustration at Kendall College of Art in Grand Rapids, MI and Computer Graphics and Photography at Spring Arbor College in Spring Arbor, MI. I received a degree in Communications Technology from Kellogg College, Battle Creek, MI and worked in the graphic design and publications field. I have always been interested in art and photography and have worked in watercolor, gouache, acrylics and colored pencil. My husband and I first retired to Green Valley, Arizona in 2006 and I joined the Santa Rita Art League and exhibited in Green Valley, AZ and at the Otero and Red Poppy galleries in Tuba, AZ. I studied colored pencil techniques during a series of courses at the Sonoran Desert Museum Art Institute in Tucson, Arizona. In 2017 we moved to our home in the Kahite neighborhood of Tellico Village and I joined the Art Guild of Tellico Village in 2019.
