Coloring the Summer Garden- Colored Pencil Techniques Workshop with Nina Antze
Summer is the time for warmth, exuberance, relaxation, and working in the garden. Come explore and draw the beautiful plants of the summer at the Laguna- Clarkia, Nigella, wild roses, California poppies, penstemon, or favorite flowers from your own garden. We will explore a variety of colored pencil techniques and learn how to blend, burnish and create new colors while incorporating the techniques of botanical drawing, color theory, value and form.
All levels welcome. Suitable for 12 year olds and up (children under 15 must be accompanied by a parent). Participants bring their own lunch and art supplies (a supply list will be provided). Hot drinks and light snacks will be provided throughout the day.
