Watercolor Pencil Botanical Journaling
(Ages 18+)

Sunday, June 11, 9:30 am – 4 pm

Pressing down pure color on paper leads to endless good vibes. We’ll combine watercolor pencils and water-soluble pens while learning clever user-friendly ways to draw. My drawing methods will ease those present inhibitions about drawing lines and shapes. Drawing flora is a delightful way to practice techniques with these pencils. Watercolor pencils are great for journals and for traveling. Colors become vibrant when water is applied to the paper surface. The effects range from smooth to textural with effortless brush strokes. We’ll also add some textures with stencils for a great mixed-media effect.
Instructor: Helen Shafer Garcia.

Cost: Members $75, non-members $89. Fee includes special materials. Separate supply list will be e-mailed once registration is taken.
Please register by June 4.
