“Learning by doing” could be the motto of this series, which we are offering again to adults online at VisArts. In the course we will be talking about four illustrators’ styles (and comparing them to the others’) , the color palettes, and the materials. Then students will  interpret part or all of the examples we focus on . The first illustrator will be Ernest H. Shepard, who illustrated A.A.Milne’s original Winnie the Pooh in pen and ink (shown) as well as others by the author.

Materials Needed:

-High quality watercolor set (Pelikan brand recommended)

-2-3 watercolor brushes, one round and one narrow flat

-NuPastels are recommended (hard, thin pastels by Prismacolor)

-Micron pen (size 08)

-Watercolor paper (11″x14″)

-Blue colored pencil (Conte a Paris brand recommended)

-Pencil and eraser

-Scrap paper

-Paper towels

-Water cup


This class is for ages 14 and up.
