Colored Pencil Portraiture - New Longer format!

Age: Adult & Teen
Instructor: Amy Lindenberger
Date(s): Fridays May 11-25, 10am-3pm

Colored pencil is an excellent medium to use for painting portraits due to its versatility, and the fact that - unlike oils - it is neither subject to drying time nor susceptible to cracking, blistering or peeling over time. The technique of blending with a solvent can be used to lay in the major forms and values of the skin tone and hair, then finishing work and details can be added with the point of the pencil. Students who are new to this class will work from a portrait reference that Amy will provide. Students who have taken this class previously can work on a portrait previously started, a different reference that Amy will provide, or a photo reference of their own brought to class.
