|Colored Pencil Lesson #5 - Lake Shore|
I'm using only prismacolor pencils, cheap bristol vellum paper, an electric eraser and shield, a colorless blending pencil, and Gamsol solvent. That's it. I am not introducing an overwhelming myriad of different tools and methods, like most other instruction books seem to do. My goal is to keep things simple, and achievable, and helping the beginning artist to feel successful right away. My students are all adults who have put their artistic instincts on hold while working and raising children. I want to help them to easily make room for art and creativity in their busy lives, and in a way that brings them great satisfaction and enjoyment.
There will be about eight lessons to this series. I have each one in a folder, containing my original drawing, a few copies of the instructions, and some drawing paper. There is also a black line outline of my drawing for students to trace easily. When we sit down to the lesson together, I demonstrate each step on my own paper, and the student does the same on his/her paper. The lesson lasts about two hours, then the student completes the project at home.
|If necessary, I can even send the student home with the pencils needed for the particular lesson.|
I should make some some special diplomas too!
