Fall Colored Pencil Workshops

I will be teaching two colored pencil workshops this fall. The first will be on Tuesday, October 4 from 9 am to 3 pm at Portsmouth Arts Guild, Portsmouth, RI. We will be drawing from still life objects and learning about layering, blending and burnishing techniques as well as working with value and form. Students will also learn different techniques and approaches to create a vibrant drawing while drawing from a still life. 

Colored pencil is a versatile medium that is portable, inexpensive, and great for combining with other types of media such as watercolor. Through layering and mixing translucent colors directly on the drawing surface, a luminous image is produced.  Experience with drawing in any medium is required but beginners to colored pencil are welcome.

Information and registration can be found on the PAG website (link above) or you can email me at for more info. 

The second workshop is a 3-hour workshop at Bristol Art Museum on Saturday, October 22 from 1 to 4 pm. This workshop focuses on Drawing the Autumn Landscape. We will work from photos and/or still life objects such as colored leaves to capture the glorious colors of autumn in colored pencil. We will also learn about creating values, textures and composition as well as layering, burnishing and blending techniques. 

Because this is a short workshop, this is only for students with some drawing experience in any medium. See the website for more information and to register. Or contact me. 

Looking forward to the workshops and hoping to see lots of wonderful students!!
