#6  1 or 2 DAY Workshop Colored Pencil Open Studio Class*


Open Studio Classes are full day classes that run from 10 AM - 4 PM in my home studio.  Each student works on their own subject with my guidance and assistance. Your subject - on any surface.  Been meaning to take a refresher class or try a new surface. - It's a great way for students who have had my beginner's class to finish up their project with additional guidance or any other project they need some help getting started on.  This class is being offered due to popular demand!  


A one or two full day at $60 per day, limit 6 each day, so reserve your spot with payment ASAP! Click here to email me.   

My continuing or advancing classes and workshops are for colored pencil artists experienced in the media or have taken my basics class.  If you have had experience elsewhere or not in my style, I would be glad to review your previous work for placement in this class.
