Coloured pencils are fun and versatile as past students have discovered in Marie Haass’s previous course ‘The Art of Coloured Pencils “. The very nature of coloured pencils is the perfect medium for combining with other materials and processes. In this course Marie will show you how well coloured pencils partner with acrylic, pastels and collage. Students will experiment with a range of colours, textures and different surfaces and can work on their own project or complete class exercises.
