If you are registering a student (grades k thru 12), please consider the $20 yearly student membership-it's the same cost as the $20 non-member fee!

The morning session will include basics for general use, and the afternoon will include grisaille, scraffito, embossing, and use of mineral spirits.. Feel free to bring lunch/snacks; breaks provided.  Materials list below.

Materials List:

Please bring the following Prismacolor pencils or equivilent: 

Lemon Yellow # 915, Apple Green # 912, Grass Green # 909, Parrot Green # 1006, True Blue # 903, Imperial Violet, #1007, Violet # 932, Mulberry # 995,  Magenta #930, Poppy Red # 922, Orange # 918, Yellowed Orange # 1002, White # 938, Black # 935, Sepia # 948, and a colorless blender. Also bring a graphite pencil, HB or 2H, kneaded eraser, a white plastic eraser, Strathmore or Canson Bristol vellum paper around 8X10 or 9x12, tracing paper,  and a pencil sharpener. If your pencils are new please sharpen them prior to class, and be sure to sharpen the end opposite the color name and number. 

Colorless blender


Also bring a kneaded eraser, a white plastic eraser, Strathmore or Canson Bristol vellum paper around 9x12 or 10x14, and a pencil sharpener. If your pencils are new please sharpen them prior to class, and be sure to sharpen the end opposite the color name and number. A clipboard will make a very nice drawing board if your paper is 9X12. 

The list I am giving you is very basic and allows you to mix further colors. I am suggesting Prismacolor pencils, as they are easier to find that many European brands. If you have a set of artist quality pencils, such as Faber Castell Polychromos, or Derwent, these should be just fine. The point is to have artist quality with which to work.
