BAGSC member Monica Ray will be teaching a Two-day Workshop in Colored Pencil at the Inn of Cape May, New Jersey, May 18 & 19, 2020. Time: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm (with lunch break) Cost of two-day workshop: $195.00 (includes packet of different papers and practice pieces) Class size: limited to 15 students Registration deadline: April 15, 2020.
Colored Pencil is a versatile medium and lends itself perfectly for nature’s treasures found on the beach, and local coastal plants, capturing their different textures and colors with relative ease. A work in colored pencil can be rendered as a drawing or be closely reminiscent of a work done in watercolor or oil. Learn the techniques for painting in colored pencil and some new tricks along the way.
This workshop is designed for all levels of students, either new or experienced at working in colored pencil. Through demonstrations, discussion of materials, handling properties and techniques, hands-on time, and individual attention, students will develop and improve their skills.
The workshop will be held at the Inn of Cape May (www.innofcapemay.com) in the lovely historic town of Cape May, New Jersey. The inn is right across from the beach overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
On Tuesday, the 19th, an early morning nature walk in the local State Park with a knowledgeable naturalist has been planned—bring binoculars if you plan on attending. Besides drawing and painting, enjoy a stroll on the beach or boardwalk, explore the town, or simply indulge in a quiet moment sitting on the deck and watch a pod of dolphins, swim by in the distance.
Good times are to be had!
