Two Artists Two Expressions

Date: Saturday, May 21st, 2011 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Speaker: Katsuya Takahashi and Daniel Schallau

Please join us for an evening workshop led by two master colored pencil children's book illustrators followed by Q and A.

Katsuya Takahashi will introduce and demonstrate the basic properties and techniques of colored pencils that give his illustrations a unique look and feel. In the second half of his workshop, everyone will have the chance to experiment with the techniques that Takahashi has shared. Please bring a set of twelve or more colored pencils, some paper and an eraser.

Daniel Schallau will focus on the techniques he uses to draw cool winter scenes. Have you ever wondered how to draw snow in night scenes? Just use white? Think again. Schallau's secrets might surprise you. This part of the workshop will offer the opportunity, for those interested, to try out some of Schallau's tips. Please bring a range of blue colored pencils and yellow, orange and red pencils. Paper and pencil sharpeners will be provided.
