Water-soluble colored pencils combine the precision and control of pencil drawing with the fluid possibilities of watercolor paint. Have fun exploring the many ways these versatile drawing tools can be used – wet or dry, alone or for mixed media. They’re great for sketching or for serious artwork, for artists’ journals and plein air work, even fiber arts – and they mix well with pen and ink and traditional watercolor. Derwent, the company that makes more watersoluble drawing products than anyone else, provides all the pencils used in this class. Pencil sets will be shared in class – and you’ll get to keep some. Assorted papers will also be provided.

Derwent Watercolour, Inktense, Aquatone, Graphitint and Metallic pencils, Inktense Blocks, Art Bars (watercolor crayons). Class sets will be provided to share. Six-color sets for individual use and to keep will be provided.
