Sennelier Oil and Soft Pastel
Saturday July 19th
1:00pm - 3:00pm
Sennelier Pastels are rich in pigment and history. Many colors were created specifically for certain artist, like Picassco.
The extra-fine soft pastels are water soluble and have an unparalleled pigment intensity. Even a gentle stroke delivers a solid, powerful line of brilliant color. In addition, 25 iridescents complete the line. 100% pure pigment - no clay, binders or fillers. Unusual depth and luminosity. Lightfast to hold color for centuries. Standard size sticks come in 525 colors - the largest range available.
Created in the 1940's in collaboration with Picasso these creamy, lipstick-like pastels are rich in pigment, cover well, and have outstanding opacity and lightfastness. They may be thinned with turpentine and worked with a brush, are acid-free and can be applied to any surface. Modern Sennelier Oil Pastels have 20% large diameter than the original stick and are available in a larger size called "Grand", which is the equivalent of 8 regular size sticks.

FW Acrylic Inks, Simply Simmons Brushes, System 3 Acrylics
Saturday July 26th
1:00pm - 3:00pm
For students, amateurs, and professionals alike, Simply Simmons Brushes offer excellent performance, dependability, and value - all at one low price, no matter what the size. They are handmade by skilled craftsmen to meet the same high standards that artists have come to expect from the Robert Simmons name.
FW Artists Ink is an acrylic-based, pigmented, water-resistant ink in a range of 38 colors, all of which have either a three-star or four-star rating for permanence.
Such a high degree of lightfastness over such a range of fully intermixable colors makes them ideal for use by artists in the production of pictures for permanent display. (Note - Fluorescent colors are not lightfast.)
Colors can be substantially diluted to achieve the most subtle of tones, very similar in character to watercolor. Such washes will dry to a water-resistant film and successive layers of color can be laid over them in a highly predicable manner.
