Drawing Basics: Color with David Bailin

April 11 @ 5:00 pm 7:00 pm

< Back to Workshops

Tuesdays, April 11-25, 5-7pm

 3 sessions | $140 for members $150 for non-members

This workshop is for the beginner who has a good grasp of pencil and/or charcoal technique but would like to transition into color or to know more about drawing with color.

This is a continuation of Drawing Basics Part One, but part one is not a prerequisite.

Forget the theory, the tedious color grids, the numbing lectures about hue, value and chroma. This course, using conté crayons and colored pencils, bridges the gap between working with tonality and working with color one step at a time. 


David Bailin is an artist working primarily in drawing and has over 35 years’ experience in teaching studio art. He was the director of the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts (formally the Arkansas Arts Center) Museum school from 1986-1996. There he taught art to children through adults of all experience levels. After leaving the center, he was an adjunct at the University of Central Arkansas where he taught basic and figure drawing, design, art appreciation, art criticism and history until moving to Wellfleet full time in 2021. He has received painting fellowships from the NEA, the Mid-America Arts Alliance-NEA and Arkansas Arts Council.  He was named an Arkansas Visionary in 2014. His work is highlighted in Rockman’s Drawing Essentials, fourth edition published by the Oxford University press, 2020 (and the updated version to be published early next year) and Steinbeck’s Creative Practices for Visual Artists, published by Focal press, 2018. His critical reviews appear in Artnews, LA Times and Weekly, and on numerous art blogs. Bailin is represented by Koplin Del Rio, Seattle, WA (formerly Los Angeles, 1982-2015) and M2 Gallery, Little Rock, AR.
