Working with Colored Pencils | tuesdays 6-8:30 pm with Kathleen Digney

tuesdays  |  3.12 - 4.9.2019  |  6 - 8:30pm | 5 weeks

INSTRUCTOR: Kathleen Digney


Work from a still life composition as Kathleen demonstrates color mixing and layering, understanding value, creating subtle tonal shifts, and good draftsmanship. All skill levels are welcome.


Materials to bring to class

  • Battery operated pencil sharpener
  • A graphite pencil (preferably on the lighter side – ex: 2h or hb),
  • kneaded eraser and white plastic eraser
  • A roll of 1” masking tape or artists tape
  • Some type of board to which you can attach your paper.  Make sure the surface is smooth and hard
  • A couple of sheets of either Canson Mitientes paper, Strathmore charcoal paper, sanded pastel paper or Ampersand board in a light gray color.


Kathleen recommends buying individual pencils rather than sets. By purchasing individual pencils, one creates a personalized palette without purchasing colors that you may never use. 

Make sure you purchase Berol Premier Prismacolor Pencils and not  Prismacolor Verithin.
