The Versatility of Colored Pencil

Transcend the traditional look, feel and concept of color pencils by learning to push this medium into a far richer and relevant form of fine art expression. Learn techniques of layering and color mixing that make your color pencil work feel more like a brush or liquid medium. Some drawing ability and knowledge of color is helpful.
