Tracing Memories

For the next few weeks, I will be teaching a few Tracing Memories classes at a local senior center. Today is the first class, and we will start by coloring this scene of a park bench from a beautiful garden here in Eugene.

I'll try to post some tutorials over the next few weeks. Meanwhile, have fun coloring!

Added to post:
 I just got back from the first class with this group, and we had a wonderful time! No one in the class had ever touched a Copic marker before. Many did not consider themselves artistic. What I loved is that the staff at the senior center had as much fun coloring as the residents did! Here is a photo of a beautiful picture made by one of the ladies this morning. 

We loved seeing how excited she was about her artwork. She did not think her work was very good, but as she kept working on it, it kept looking better and better. She left very happy! Everyone was excited to come back for their next session.
