Colored Pencils & Dynamic Media

Course Description:     
This course will explore the use of colored pencil techniques.

We will experiment with layering, burnishing, surface distressing techniques and imprimatur. Also, we’ll try using colored backgrounds and surfaces and using wet medium (both water and turpentine) as solvents.
