  • Please choose this option only if you have a current NHAC membership. Choosing this option without a current membership delays finalizing your registration. Thank you.
  • Please choose this option if you do not have a current NHAC membership. 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!

    As an adult signing up for more than one class, it will cost less to add a yearly membership instead of paying the non-member fee for each class!

    Please click on the MEMBERSHIP tab for more information. Thank you.


Registration deadline: January 25

Date: Mondays 2/1-2/15

3 sessions

Time: 12:30pm -4:00pm

Materials list: Please bring the following Prismacolor pencils or their equivalents: Lemon Yellow # 915, Apple Green # 912, Olive Green # 911, True Blue # 903, Powder Blue # 1087, Imperial Violet, #1007, Violet # 932, Raspberry # 1030, Poppy Red # 922, Orange # 918, Yellowed Orange # 1002, Cream # 914, 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 or Stonehenge Bristol vellum paper around 9x12 or 10x14, tracing paper, Xacto knife or razor blade, ruler, magnifying glass, 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.

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. Your work can only be as good as the quality of your supplies.
