“Learning by doing” could be the motto of this online series, which we’re offering again for adults (ages 14+).

In the course, we’ll discuss and compare four illustrators’ styles, color palettes, and materials. Then, students will interpret part or all of the examples we’re focusing on.

The first artist will be Ernest H. Shepard, who illustrated A.A. Milne’s original Winnie the Pooh in pen and ink (shown) and other books.

Materials Needed/Recommended:

  • High quality watercolor set (Pelikan brand recommended)
  • 2-3 watercolor brushes, one round and one narrow flat
  • NuPastels recommended (hard, thin pastels by Prismacolor)
  • Micron pen (size 08)
  • Watercolor paper (11″x 14″)
  • Blue colored pencil (Conte a Paris brand recommended)
  • Pencil and eraser
  • Scrap paper
  • Paper towels
  • Water cup

This class is for ages 14+.

Instruction will be provided on Zoom. Students must have a webcam and Zoom downloaded on a computer, phone, or tablet. We’ll send an email with the Zoom link to login.


Classes require a minimum enrollment of four students. If classes must be cancelled due to low enrollment, students will be informed one week prior to the start of the class and issued a full refund.
