Draw the Minnesota State Flower with Colored Pencil

Draw a Showy Lady Slipper – Minnesota’s State Flower – with just four colored pencils and white. This class will introduce a few advanced techniques using colored pencil but all skill levels are welcome. We’ll draw on toned paper for mid-tone values and use Prismacolor NuPastel to lay in a background “wash”. Through a series of demonstrations and step-by-step instructions you’ll learn to “paint” in this medium – layering and blending colors to create depth and volume using a limited “palette”. The class includes a review of basic drawing principles, the fundamentals of color, plus opportunities to experiment with various techniques and tools.

Registration Includes

All instructions and materials. You’ll create a drawing you can frame or copy for notecards! You’ll also receive a list of resources and references for your future projects. The colored pencils supplied are yours to take home for future drawings.
