Artist’s fine line markers are not just for careful detail work, they are also great for quick sketches. Drawing in pen means letting go of perfectionism and going with the flow of ink! Add color with a few colored pencils, watercolor pencils, pastels or watercolors and create fresh and lively artwork or fill a journal. Forget erasing and fixing things, just loosen up and have fun drawing! (Weather permitting, this class will draw outside, too.)

Artist’s quality colored pencils are versatile and easy to master, an ideal medium for fine art! Learn the basics, and apply them to a project or get guidance on developing your own original subjects. We’ll discuss pencil brands and surfaces, color mixing and creating effects. Bring your own pencils, or if you want to try before you buy, assorted pencil sets will be available for use in class. Some paper and other tools will also be available.

What’s not to love about painting animals — especially when it involves humor and imagination?!! This workshop is just plain fun, beginning with brainstorming ideas and numerous, short exercises. You’ll see how one creative step leads to another and another until you have a host of animals eager to be painted in out-of-the-ordinary ways. In addition to the creative aspect, you can count on Robin’s seasoned teaching skills for thorough explanations and demonstrations of watercolor techniques. By working small (8×10’ish) students will have time to create several pieces and Robin will show ways to creatively mount or frame finished pieces. She also reproduces her work on everything from pillows to notecards and will explain the process.
This workshop is a great springboard for developing creative approaches to your work, regardless of the subject. There will be time for interaction and painting throughout our three sessions. Robin demonstrates in watercolor but students may use acrylic and gouache. Let the fun begin!
