Fantastical Worlds Exhibit

I will have a colored pencil piece at the upcoming “Fantastical Worlds Exhibit” at Blakely Hall in Issaquah, Washington
September 6 – November 8
Reception: Thursday, September 7, 6-8pm
artEAST presents “Fantastical Worlds,” featuring 19 Pacific Northwest jury selected artists.
“Fantastical Worlds” indulges our imaginations with artwork that offers an escape from reality that is extravagantly fanciful and takes the viewer on a magical mystery journey. There is a broad array of artwork that includes images of imaginary creatures and habitats, as well as distorted viewpoints from our own planet.
Blakely Hall is located in Issaquah Highlands. This venue is typically open 8-5 M-F but is occasionally reserved for private events. To confirm access, please call (425) 507-1107.

Beginner Colored Pencil Clinic

September 30, 2017 – 9AM-12 Noon,  Northwest Art Center, 15705 Main St NE F, Duvall, WA  (425) 788-5900

Some of what you will learn:

  • The many different kinds of colored pencils on the market and how to use them
  • Really helpful tools for drawing in colored pencil
  • Types of drawing papers and surfaces used for colored pencil art
  • Various blending tools and solvents used
  • Colored pencil tips and tricks
  • How to find free, copyright-free sources to draw from (aside from your own photos)

Everyone will get to work on a colored pencil piece using a subject matter of their choosing. After all, if you don’t like drawing something you won’t have fun working on it! Don’t know what to draw? No worries.

I will be sending you a short questionnaire before the class that will help you decide what your best subject matter could be! Based on your answers I will even bring some source photos for you to work from if you don’t have any.

At the end of the class one lucky attendee will also win a gift bag full of fun, colored pencil related items!
