Pan Pastel and Colored Pencil Workshop


with Phillip Schorn

Calendar Aug 13, 2021 at 9 am

This special half-day workshop with artist Phillip Schorn is an excellent opportunity to expand your skill with colored pencil and to experiment with integrating pan pastels into your work. Pan pastels are pastel colors that can be mixed and applied like paint. They are packaged in a unique pan “cake” format and combine beautifully with colored pencil.

During the initial part of the workshop, Phillip will demonstrate various color pencil techniques. Then, you’ll progress to working with pan pastels and colored pencil in combination. You’ll work on a couple of different renderings during the workshop.

This workshop is designed for those with some experience with colored pencil, age 16 and above. A supply list is sent with your registration confirmation. Course# DRW112.321.01
