Colored Pencil Drawing Techniques (10:00 am - 2:00 pm)

This class with artist John DelMastro, will focus on the technique of blending soft color pencils together to accomplish an almost” paint like” feel. This method has nothing to do with using watercolor pencils or adding any liquid substance to the medium nor is it working with pastels or charcoal. The class is designed to teach you how to draw out color from a pencil through a series of practical exercises. You will be sketching very simple objects, and learning how to add dark and light values as well as bring out texture with colored pencils. All skill levels are welcome.  Participants should bring a set of at least 24 Prismacolor colored pencils. Please make sure the box says “Smooth, rich color laydown”, a regular pencil - can be H, B, HB, or any other within that spectrum you like for sketching, a sketchpad - can be from 9” x 12” and up, but doesn't have to be that much larger. Vellum surface paper will be great, fine tooth surface will work as well. STAY AWAY from textured watercolor paper or any other paper with a lot of tooth. Bristol is a popular sketchpad found at many craft stores.  Bring a simple handheld pencil sharpener or a razor knife to sharpen your colored pencils and a bag lunch.  And don’t forget to bring a wondrous attitude!  The cost for the class is $45 for Woodlawn members/$55 for non-members.  As space is limited, pre-registration is required by calling Woodlawn at 667-8671or e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
