Do you LOVE animals? Do you LOVE your pets? Do you LOVE making art? Then this class is for YOU! Bring in a photo (or print-out) of your favorite pet or animal and Jennifer Linderman will show you how to bring them alive using a variety of art supplies such as watercolor brush markers, ink pen, colored pencil, oil sticks, and anything else we can throw at it! You will start with a simple drawing then build our portraits from there! These make great gifts for the Holidays, too!
This is a beginner to intermediate level drawing class using Prismacolor Colored Pencils.
Jennifer will teach the students tricks of the trade in colored pencil such as color matching, layering, blending, adding texture, and finishing touches.
Jennifer will bring in her own nature samples for each class or you may also bring your own! Join us to learn more about this beautiful art form and learn how to use colored pencils in ways you never thought possible!
There are only 10 seats open for this class. Register to hold your space.

I am a Mom of two children and live in Oakland with my husband and a few pets. My background is nursing but once I began having children I left my profession to spend time with my family. My creative drive (which I never even knew I had) grew strong during this time and has evolved and blossomed to where I am today. I own my own business, Origami Mami where I teach Origami to elementary school-aged kids in the East Bay. That being said, I call myself a practitioner of art and crave showing others what I have learned on my creative journey! Since I am self-taught I have been able to learn things the way I want to learn them while taking in the structure and formalities of art lessons at my own pace. For the past four years I have taken an ongoing botanical illustration class and chose to use colored pencil to be my guide. It has suited me quite well and I want to help others demystify the colored pencil and demonstrate my tricks of the trade for this very versatile media. I am a huge supporter of the DIY movement which is how I have learned so much about mixed media wherein my passions grow deep. Currently, I am painting portraits with botanical elements using watercolor, acryla gouache, ink, collage and anything else that comes my way! Anything is possible when it comes to art!
