Colored Pencil Still life Project 

More

May 27, 2020 2:00 pm

We will be drawing and rendering in full color a still life of fruit on fabric. You will be instructed on ways to set up your still life . Composition, design and light source is discussed as well as color theory. 

This class does not teach you how to draw but rather how to better use the color pencils in your drawing. This class looks to build on your existing drawing skills.

Could a beginner do this? yes, however, if you are a beginner who has never drawn before and you want to start with colored pencils…..I would strongly suggest you use oranges to draw, to simplify everything for you.   

 

Wednesday, May 27th, 2-5pm

$30 for members $40 for non-members

 

Supplies:

Set 24 or larger set of colored pencils 

*(if you do not use Prismacolors and are getting cheaper or a different kind, please be aware that, in general, the smooth round wood pencils are softer than other types that have sides, like the pencils we used in school. The smooth round type blend better and you will be happier with final results, and have lots less frustration) 

Pencil sharpener 

70 to 80 pound paper, or colored pencil paper. size 12”x18″ or larger. colored paper is fine also if you want to experiment. 

Colorless blender pencil 

A piece of fabric and fruit of your choice, pears, apples, or oranges to draw from. (Real fruit works best instead of plastic)
