Colored Pencils as a Fine Art Medium

Apex Senior Center - Virtual Program

March 4, 7 and 11 2024

2:00 to 5:00 p.m. (ET)

Colored Pencils are a wonderful medium for drawing and painting.  In this class you will learn how to work with colored pencils to create photo realistic paintings.  You will begin by reviewing the basic colored pencil techniques and then work on a project step-by-step.  All levels are welcome.

To register for the class visit,  

Glistening Cherries

Is that really colored pencil?  Yes! And in this video recording of her live workshop, Carmen will show you step by step how to make your cherries glisten and glow, too, as you follow along.  Watch how she does it, then try it yourself.  You'll have anytime-always video access. Learn at your own speed... and refer to it again and again.

Begin with a value study in white, then gradually add color, starting with light reds and going ever darker to recreate these plump, vivid, eye-popping bombs of glistening color.  Access the video workshop at
