Monday in Drawing Tips – Tomorrow, Carrie Lewis will demonstrate how to create incredibly smooth, blended colors using colored pencils and ONE non-traditional drawing tool. If you’ve every wanted a better way to draw smooth, realistic skin in your colored pencil portraits, this is the tutorial for you!

Tuesday in Featured Artists – Yasuaki Okamoto’s somewhat political (yet always poignant) artwork explores the role of animals in our hectic, people-oriented world. I highly encourage you to stop by on Tuesday to check out his work.

Wednesday in Drawing Tips – Finish out the week with a new calligraphy piece by Phawnda Moore. She’ll be sharing her process for creating a small “congratulations” card using hand-drawn letters, a brush marker, and a glitter pen.
