If you have not taken one of Mary Beth’s workshops before, don’t worry. She will work with you starting at your level. If you have not already taken one of Mary Beth’s workshops, this is your chance to really spread your wings!
Mary Beth will teach you to plan your composition, enlarge the image, and transfer the image to professional grade paper. You will practice various colored pencil techniques for layering color, creating textures, and creating shadows. Colored pencil is recognized as a versatile, durable, and portable Fine Art medium that should be part of any artist’s skill set.
Mary Beth Lesko is a prolific artist and experienced instructor. She has specialized in colored pencil as an art medium for more than 14 years and her work has been shown extensively at galleries, including the SoBo Gallery in Winter Garden. “The artwork done in colored pencil is now being accepted by galleries and museums as a respected fine art medium! Many pencil manufacturers are now following lightfast guidelines established by The Colored Pencil Society of America to manufacture pigments that can withstand light and not fade over time. This makes the value of an art piece immeasurable when it hangs in galleries, a museum or in a private home or business.” -MBL
What People Are Saying About Mary Beth Lesko
Mary Beth is a very skilled and talented artist. I was so appreciative of how well prepared and organized she was to teach an entry workshop. She answered many questions, gave us examples to learn from and she walked around the class making a great effort to help everyone. Since taking her workshop I have enjoyed doing some colored pencil drawings at home. I also ordered the instruction book she highly recommended. I felt her workshop was very productive and educational. Thank You! –KC 1-18-17
