SUPPLIES NEEDED:

COLORED PENCILS:

  • A set of Prismacolor pencils or other high quality colored pencils such as Caran d’Ache, Tombow, etc. Most colored pencil sets of 24-48 pencils offer plenty of color choices, and even a small set of 12 colors is sufficient, (although a set of 48 has ALL the colors recommended for this class and Meryl Ann’s other colored pencil workshops.) If you are used to using them, Derwent Inktense Colored Pencils can be used. Note: “student grade” colored pencils (such as Prismacolor “Scholar” or Crayola) have weaker colors than the professional grade.
  • A colorless blender is great to have but not required.
  • Specific colors recommended are referenced with Prismacolor colors, however a link to the color chart is supplied and can be used to substitute other brands. Recommended colors are useful but it is not required to have exact colors of pencils for this project.

CARD STOCK AND ACCESS TO PRINTER:

    • You will receive downloadable pdfs with supply list, info, resources, and templates after you sign up. (Be sure you can open pdfs on your device.) You will need access to a printer. Your home printer is fine if it is friendly with card stock, however local office supply places can print for you.

      Note: Neenah Exact Vellum Bristol, 8.5″ x 11,” 67 lb/147 gsm, White, 94 Brightness, 250 Sheets is recommended (available on Amazon). This is the card stock used in most of my classes that require card stock. “Vellum Bristol” is a toothy finish lightweight card stock that provides a good surface for colored pencil (a shiny finish card stock does not work as it repels the colored pencil, though it’s good for markers). Other brands of card stock may work, the finish should be slightly textured, not shiny or smooth.

OTHER GENERAL CRAFT SUPPLIES:

    • Pencil sharpener, eraser, scissors, glue stick.
      (More details on supplies are in the supply list you will receive upon signing up.)

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS:

Upcoming Workshops: Times and Dates TBA

Learn by copying: Georgia O’Keeffe’s Poppies
You’ll learn Meryl Ann’s valuable methods as you paint a copy of Oriental Poppies, 18” x 24.”
The initial underpainting is done in acrylics in order to create depth of color, the top painting is done in oils for ease in blending. Copying from the Old Masters is one of the most basic traditional learning methods – in fact, the reason art museums were founded was in order to provide great works for art students to copy!

Elements of Art: Keys of Color

Students receive a pdf of Meryl Ann’s  30-page workbook, Elements of Art: Keys of Color, and during workshop times, will complete the color charts that accompany the workbook. Students go at their own pace. Supplies: a set of gouache (not acrylic gouache) and brushes.

Drawing Tips and Secrets

Demos and hands on activities to train you eye and hand, and a peek into some of the secrets the Masters used for accuracy in drawing.
