Using Colored Pencil on Black Paper w/ Amy Lindenberger

Colored pencil drawings are traditionally done on white or light. neutral-colored papers.  But some subjects can be much more effective against very dark backgrounds, and those backgrounds can be difficult (and labor-intensive) to achieve with colored pencil.  In this class, we'll discuss colored pencil opacity and explore key techniques for using colored pencil on black or very dark-colored surfaces, to keep colors true and luminous.  Supply list available at the gallery's front desk or by clicking here.

Quick Sketch Floral Painting w/ Pam Wenger

Liven up your floral paintings!  Join us to paint floral still-life setups with loose energy and vibrant color.  We will explore the use of watercolor pencils and water-soluble graphite pencils to add energy to the final stages of a floral painting.  We will work with value sketches and composition to take your floral still-life from simply a painting of flowers to a floral painting that you will be proud to display!

Instructor will also share some ways of using your iPad (or other tablet) to enhance the flower painting process.  If you have a tablet, bring it along.

Students should bring their own painting supplies, including paper.  Instructor will provide reference photos, still-life setups, some preprinted sketches on watercolor paper, samples of specific plants, and more.

Depicting Fur with Colored Pencil w/ Amy Lindenberger

Many artists enjoy depicting animals in their work, and if there's one thing many animals have in common, it's fur!  But fur comes in many versions, from the smooth hair of a horse, to the dense fur of a lion's mane, to the thick, soft fur of a Persian cat.  In this class, we will use a variety of colored pencil techniques to create several small swatches of different types of fur, then --as time permits-- students may choose one type to render as a more complete animal study.

Supply list available at the gallery's front desk or by clicking here.

Watercolor Workshop w/ Lynne Yancha

Back by popular demand, Lynne Yancha, a well-known watercolor artist, will instruct fellow artists to shift their consciousness, just slightly, so that your painting experience is more meaningful and fun, while at the same time taking your work seriously.

Among the items she'll emphasize are:

  1. Working from Photographs
  2. The importance of a thumbnail sketch
  3. Paint application
  4. Importance of light and allowing mistakes
  5. How to combine the elements of abstraction and realism in work

Yancha usually starts each day with a demonstration, emphasizing different techniques.  She'll include a slideshow, a still-life for students to copy while she provides positive critiques for students throughout the day.

Ages 15+    Minimum 4/Maximum 12 Students
