We were fortunate enough to have Dave Brethauer, owner of Memory Box, teach 3 classes this past week and we all enjoyed every minute of it. The morning and late afternoon classes were colored pencil instruction – shading, blending and lots of great tips. The afternoon class was watercolors – both pencils and Twinkling H2Os on watercolor paper. I know I learned alot and am looking forward to putting it all into practice soon.
Dave is an excellent teacher, has a wicked sense of humor and is just an all around nice guy. He kept us entertained with stories about his travels and his life, gave us lots of wonderful tips and taught us some excellent techniques to get the most out of our colored pencils and watercolors. He even signed my copies of his two books! We hope he can come back again next year with more cool classes. Here are just a few photos from the classes:
