SCH – Colored Pencil and Calligraphy with Kristen Doty

Workshop Flyer

Colored pencil can be used to create amazing works of art. It is readily available, doesn’t require a lot of set up, clean up or even water. Precise application is a main characteristic, making it very easy to control. Used with other media, and/or surfaces, a variety of interesting and beautiful effects can be achieved and the amount of time the process of applying colored pencil takes can be reduced. Colored pencil can also be used to create gorgeous calligraphic works, either alone or combined with other media to enhance design elements and add just the right amount of color exactly where you want it…and, best of all it doesn’t bleed!

By completing a series of basic technique exercises, you will learn how to use colored pencil or hone your existing skills. We will explore color theory, values, and color mixing, and then use these techniques to blend with calligraphy, both in making the letters themselves and by adding illustrations utilizing colored pencils. Other media and surfaces will be discussed and demonstrated, and some will be used in class to open up exciting possibilities and stir your creativity resulting in new applications and ideas. Finally, the exercises will be sewn together using a simple Japanese binding to form a book for ease of future reference. No drawing or bookbinding experience is necessary. at a minimum, it would be helpful to comfortable with a calligraphy pen and know at least one hand.
