In this workshop, students will learn to better master colored pencils with techniques for blending colors, creating hard or soft edges, and heightening value. This workshop will also go over proportion and perspective, how to make objects appear 3-dimensional, and how to better understand and utilize the colors we have. Think of the subjects you’d like to draw with colored pencils: a still life, a floral, a landscape, or a portrait. The possibilities are endless! Students are welcomed to bring their own reference photos to class.

Meet the Instructor:
For New Jersey native and artist Margaret Fanning, art has been woven into her life from a young age. Influenced and encouraged by her grandmother, who was an artist herself, Margaret explored new worlds with the pastels and watercolor paints she found lying about her grandmother’s studio.
Margaret went on to study at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) where she earned her BFA in Painting. She has exhibited internationally and her art can be found in private collections throughout the U.S. and Europe. She has won multiple awards including the Alexander Portfolio Award and the NJ Chapter of the American Artists Professional League Traditional Realism Award. Visit her website here.
