During her years with the public schools her art program won a Kennedy Center National award for excellence in art education. She has continued teaching and now has over 37 years teaching art. April is experienced with students of all ages. Her philosophy is if you can sign your name you can learn to draw and she can show you how!

Join amazing teacher April to learn the magic of drawing gardens with colored pencils using Prismacolor or comparable colored pencils. Learn to match, blend and layer colors to create a garden or vase of flowers drawing of your own choice. Colored pencils are easy to create with and easy to clean up, great for sketching and travel. Whether you are a beginner with colored pencils or have drawing experience, this is for you.

Bring to Class: Bring a set of 24 Prismacolor pencils (do not get “Scholar” Prismacolor), a Strathmore “Colored Pencil” sketchbook 9”x12”; or a regular spiral bound sketchbook.

Continuing students bring the colored pencils that you use. Bring what you are working on or photos to start a new picture if you are a continuing student. New students bring some colored photos/calendar pictures to work from.
