Drawing Techniques promoDrawing Techniques: Colored Pencil Wash
Saturday, February 22, 2014 – 7:00pm to 9:00pm

In the Drawing Techniques workshops, I share my personal techniques. But it is not about you merely replicating what I do. I want you to adapt the lessons in your own way, enhancing them with your personal style. I love the idea of the information evolving in new ways after I pass it on.

On Feb 22nd, I will share what I know about transforming colored pencil into a watercolor-like wash. It is a simple way to colorize a piece, and easier to control than traditional watercolor. What I love most is the warm, organic quality it gives to drawings. I will provide the colored pencils. All you need to bring is paper!

Pre-register for $12 at chiprc.org…. The deadline for pre-registration is a week before the event. Please pre-register early, because the event will be cancelled if no one has pre-registered by the deadline.

Ever notice how mythology pops up again and again in art?  Whether it’s Greco-Roman deities, Grail legends or even echoes of neolithic iconography, mythology and art go hand in hand.  There are historical reasons for this connection as well as psychological reasons.  But there are also spiritual reasons, best explored through one’s own artistic journey.

We will discuss all of these connections, beginning with a one-hour meeting on Feb 24th.  From there, we will seek out the myths that speak to us personally, researching and sketching as we go.  On March 3rd and March10th, we will meet for two-hour studio sessions to explore these myths in the form of original artwork.

Bring your own paper and any drawing materials you like.  Be part of a supportive group journeying into myth and art.  Pre-register for $25 at chiprc.org….  The deadline for pre-registration is a week before the event.  Please pre-register early, because the event will be cancelled if no one has pre-registered by the deadline.
