Fairy Tails Library Program

For a 60-minute program, starting cost is: $175
A portion of the fee goes to the nature photographer, Heather Sinon who allowed use of her photography
Class size: online, up to the library.

This workshop introduces large fairy tale-like decorated letters that include animals. The goal of the program is to get participants exploring color combinations, blending and shading with colored pencils. By providing participants with letters and animals they can trace, they can focus on playing with color rather than fretting the drawing process.

The program starts with a quick chat about decorated letters, some historical samples and the impact they have on design. Prior to the class, students will have chosen and printed out a versal letter outline (black and white) and an animal handout (color if at all possible). Colored pencil techniques will be discussed while participants work on their decorated letter.

Students will need:

Two printed handouts created by Debby:
        1) Versal letter of their choice
        2) Animal worksheet for the critter of their choice
colored pencils
pencil sharpener
drawing paper or regular paper
tape is helpful, not critical


I’m happy to answer questions. I’ve thrown out a lot of information!
