Draw the first flowers of spring - camellias, tulips, and daffodils. Colored pencils are a rich way to express oneself artistically. Watercolor pencils allow us to created the transparent look of the flowers or provide a base for deeper color. Colored Pencils are a fun, safe, and portable way to express oneself artistically. They are slow, calming and meditative, easy to use for the beginner and challenging for the advanced artist. We will work in the classroom with a seasonal variety of flowers. Using botanical drawing techniques, learn the basics of color theory, drawing, and application.
