Drawing Bumblebees in Colored Pencil

June 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm MST


$30 Non-Member / $24 Member

The Sonoran Southwest is full of gorgeous flowers that need bees for pollination. In this class we will observe and draw a variety of bees. Using easy techniques you will learn to break your subject down into simple shapes and draw more accurately. Then we will use multiple layers of color with colored pencil to add vibrancy and sparkle to our paintings. 

Supplies: Graphite pencil, paper, bristol board (optional), eraser, color pencils, sharpener. 


Devon Meyer

As an artist, Devon is constantly inspired by nature. The elaborate patterns and gorgeous colors seen in plants, birds or flowers are reflected in the work she does. Watercolor is her favorite medium but she also works in oil, charcoal, pen and ink and colored pencil.
