Next DC202 Meeting

Saturday, October 13, 2018, 10 am - 12:30 pm
Working on Black Paper, Part 2
Mini Workshop: Black Paper Adventure

Look forward to a fun time.

Award winning artist, Blade, is presenting this
workshop to show how easily colored pencils render
on black paper. You will learn basic techniques used
to apply colored pencil to black paper. Hopefully you
will experience how much faster colored pencil on
black paper can be! There will be paper and a project
provided just for you.

Things you will need to bring: Prismacolor Premium colored pencils work best for this project or whatever creamier pencils you have. I do not know what colors exactly, but be sure to include: white, green(light, medium, dark), indigo blue and some pastel colors of yellow, blue, pink, or lavender. This will be a loose project, so any colors can work. Bring ALL your pencils if you wish along with the usual tools: pencil sharpener, kneadable eraser, soft brush, etc.. You may want to bring a light, as the library lighting has much to be desired.
