Please join amazing local artist Robin Enneking (bio below) as she instructs and demonstrates, tricks and tips to colored pencil use, specific problem solving techniques and individualized instructions for you to render your portrait.
-Drawing board 9"x12" min. (provided if you don't have one for $4.00)
2- 8"x 10" Photo copies of your reference photo on regular copy paper. Please bring the original snapshot as well. Please note: we cannot use a photo that has been copyrighted by a professional photographer!
-72 count or higher Prisma color colored pencils
-Electric pencil sharpener if you have one. I will have three on hand if you don't mind sharing. (If you decide to buy one, please look for one with rotary blade not one single blade that spins similar to old school wall mounted hand sharpener.)
Please note: You likely will not leave with a finished portrait but will have the knowledge to complete it on your own at your own pace.
