I will begin teaching a new session of Drawing in Color at Washtenaw Community College - Community Enrichment, Starting on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 for 8 weeks, 6:15 PM- 8:45 PM
Using professional-grade colored pencils, water-soluble colored pencils, graphite, pastels and other media, we will explore color theory and its application. A combination of demonstration, one-on-one guidance and individual studio time will help improve your technique and stimulate creativity. Beginning students will have structured lessons. Advanced and continuing students will have one-on-one instruction & studio time. An optional class critique will be available.

I was going through my files and found this. Ann Kullberg has a great website targeting colored pencil artists. She publishes books and magazines, and is an author of some fabulous instructional colored pencil portrait books. Several years ago she featured me in her magazine.

This is a mixed media experiment, and still a work in progress.
I used Caran D'ache NeoColor II(water-soluble wax pastels), colored pencils, and stitching on 11" x 14 " Stonehenge Paper. I have been working on abstracted landscapes and this piece incorporates various media. I am enjoying this creative exercise, and will be applying more stitching as time goes on.
Two of my pieces were accepted in the upcoming AAWA Juried show held at the Ypsilanti Library. They will be on exhibit from February 11th through March 29th.
The Juror for this show is Denise Lisiecki, who is the Director of the Art School at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. She teaches painting and is represented by galleries in many regions of the US. Her work can be found in over 50 museums and corporate collections. She has received creative artists grants from the Michigan Council for the Arts and the National Endowment of the Arts.
