Class description


Whether a novice or an expert artist, this class is fun and gives you a remarkable opportunity to work with colored pencils on wood.


In this class, you will first transfer the design to the lid of a wooden box, which will follow with outlining the design with the pen and then prepping the surface for colored pencils.  This can be done on gourd surfaces too.  


You’ll finish the design with color, using colored pencils.  Each student will get a wooden box to decorate and a black-fine tip Sharpie to take home, along with a class tutorial.  Colored pencils will be available for coloring. (not to give away)
