Did you know that there are a multitude of special techniques that can be applied using colored pencils? Join MCA teaching artist, Lisa Douglas during our new Colored Pencil Technique class and you can learn how to create highlights, shade, blend, and more just with a simple pack of colored pencils. During the 8-week session we will explore a new topic, techniques and artist(s). Participants who are interested will be invited to exchange postcards with classmates featuring their artwork.

No experience is necessary to participate, but this class is a perfect compliment to the skills gained during our Wednesday night Doodle Club or Intentional Doodling series with community partners. Below are the class details.
