Prismacolor pencils are the most favorite pencil of artists. Their thick lead and the multitude of colors available make it the top choice of artists. The creamy, smooth texture, and permanent pigments give its brilliant look. Students in the workshop will use the pencils to develop art-making skills. NO previous experience is necessary so all tweens are invited to sign up. Plan to have fun while you learn.
