Colored Pencil Drawing Techniques with Artist John DelMastro at Woodlawn

Ellsworth –  Woodlawn is pleased to present Colored Pencil Drawing Techniques on Saturday, August 11 from 10:00am to 2:00pm. Instructor and artist John DelMastro will focus on the technique of blending soft color pencils together to accomplish an almost “paint like” feel. This method has nothing to do with using watercolor pencils or adding any liquid substance to the medium nor is it working with pastels or charcoal. The course is designed to teach students how to draw out color from a pencil through a series of practical exercises. Students will sketch very simple objects, and learn how to add dark and light values as well as bring out texture with colored pencils.

The cost is $45 for Woodlawn members and $55 for non-members. All skill levels are welcome. A list of supplies will be emailed to registered participants. As space is limited, pre-registration is required through the calendar at
