What students have to say

After the first demo: 

“Loved this so much! Learning how to blend made it feel like my art supplies just doubled!!” ~ Chel

“So much information in a short space of time!” ~ Sally

“I have ignored Copic so far, mostly because I found the cap color and ink color so different. You have peaked my interest in them now!” ~ Mary-Anne

“I was hoping to find new colouring options and I have on Day 1 with new skills too.” ~ Sallie

Other comments:

“I’m opening up to new and unusual colors shades/tones that I haven’t used before. It is such a eye opener. ” ~ Kayla

“Have to say, I LOVED “painting” with markers to create a color wheel!” ~ Chrysty

“Love all the ideas. Never had thought to use a gel pen with a brush as you did. That technique creates an interesting effect.” ~ Nance

“This video (demonstrating paint pens) really helped me with my perfectionism issues. Kathryn, the fact that you didn’t like something, didn’t make you nuts and you just changed it as you went….man was that freeing for me!” ~ Peg

promo-ColorWorkshop-Chippy1200Are you like the chipmunk collecting lots of art supplies and saving them for a rainy day?

The rainy day has arrived…

I have a confession. I’ve been guilty of collecting art supplies, lots of them, and not using them. Beautiful tins of colored pencils, collections of watercolor markers, gel pens, Copics, TomBows, Winsor Newton, and Posca paint pens fill my home studio.

Do you have lots of art supplies that are going unused too? It’s time to dust them off and start playing.

Join me for a color workshop that I’m hosting in the Sharing Circle. Get inspired, learn new techniques, try out some different color combinations, and connect with mandala enthusiasts from all over the world.

Let’s play with color this season!

    Wauw – Sounds like the course for me. However, as it seems you work with many different art supplies, could you possibly provinsen a simple list of supplies needed for each video? Then I can go shopping 😊
    Plan to sign up


    • To get started, decide how much money you want to spend and which medium you’d like to begin with. Here are some suggestions by medium:

      Alcohol Markers: Sharpies (inexpensive)
      Water based Markers: TomBow
      Colored Pencil: Either Faber-Castel Polychromos or Prismacolor

      The course is designed to give you ideas of various mediums and brands – options, prices, techniques. It is a good way to preview and then decide where you want to invest your art supply money.

      I hope this is helpful to you.
