About The Event
Colored pencils are a wonderfully dynamic medium that are highly beloved by many of our Project Onward artists. They are capable of rendering art styles that art expressive and abstract, or detailed and photo realistic. While they're slow to use compared to wet media like paint (in terms of laying down color), they’re almost unparalleled when it comes to control and detail. Colored pencils are famous for their translucent quality, which can give artwork a striking luminant appeareance, especially on textured paper.
For this exhibition, we have invited international award winning colored pencil artist and Project Onward Volunteer, Tracy Frein, to guest curate and work with our artists on their techniques. The Colored Pencil Show is a culmination of these efforts and our artists' love letter to the medium.
