In this class, students will be exposed to a variety of mixed media that can be used in conjunction with colored pencil, including ink, watercolor and soft pastels. Students will also use a variety of surfaces or substrates other than traditional white paper, from pastelmat to cradleboard. The basics of colored pencils will be reviewed, including materials, layering, mixing, blending, and burnishing, as well as some composition and color theory. Students will work on four projects, one for each day of class, and have additional skills-building exercises on other materials. Instructor: Judy Thomas.
