Take this fun, hands-on workshop to learn how to create wonderful washes, strong colors, and how to add shadows to make your pumpkins pop! There will be a few interesting and colorful pumpkins and gourds as models for this class. A Free Sketch Kit is included!

Eileen will show you how to simplify the shapes to make it easier to draw. Then we will look for shadows and details. Lastly, we will add watercolor. This is a relaxing way to start to observe the world around you and record as you go. Traveling is way more fun when you sketch!

Your FREE sketch kit will include everything you need to start your sketch practice. If you have taken Eileen’s class and would prefer to get a different kit, she can bring you a sketchbook and a Fountain pen with permanent ink. You can bring your watercolor palette, pencil,etc. If you would prefer this alternate kit, please register for the class then send an email to epgoldenberg3344@gmail with you name, date of class and a request for the #2 Sketch kit.

This class is open to anyone ages 7 and up who has a desire to sketch. Please be aware that no matter the age, everyone needs to register.
