Join artist Jerry Phillips in a low-key drawing workshop where he will demonstrate how he uses colored pencils and simple No. 2 graphite pencils. Explore your creativity while experimenting with color. You are encouraged to prepare for this ARTlab by collecting photographs or printed imagery that you find significant or interesting. The goal is to create some fun individual works as you play with the drawing medium.
