Calligraphy style holiday cards, adult art class display, 12/4/17

Tape two colored pencils together, with one point a bit higher than the other. Tape should be around the middle of the pencils and on the diagonal so pencils stay stationary.

Experiment with drawing lines and marks holding the 'pencil' at various angles. The more you can learn to keep it at a consistent angle, the more you can make strokes that flow evenly from thick to thin. You may see from practice sheets here how to play w this. It needs practice tho.

After the practice we did cards. Not everyone used the 'lesson' though!
