Published 12:58 pm Wednesday, December 30, 2015

Central Virginia Arts will offer a workshop, “ Colored Pencils and Acrylics”, on Saturday, Jan. 16, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hampden-Sydney College’s Winston Building, second floor. 

The layering of colored pencils and acrylics is a fantastic technique for building up soft textures, sharp edges and rich colors. Drawing from colorful photographs or still-life objects of flora and fauna, the workshop will explore the techniques used to take colored pencils a step beyond their traditional use.
