Course Description

Learn to use water-soluble colored pencils to create a vibrant painting of the Arboretum. Water-soluble colored pencils look and handle like a traditional colored pencil, yet they dissolve and blend in water. In this workshop, students will spend some time field sketching before returning to the classroom to develop a piece using pencils, water, and brushes.

Instructor: Kimberly Mullarkey
Notes: Some experience working with color media (watercolor or other painting media, pastel or color pencil) is necessary. Limit 18
