Breathing With Line - A Colored Pencil Workshop - Cynthia Hellyer Heinz


This work shop balances specific drawing techniques: building layers of marks to create luminous color and strong forms by carving into the surface of the black paper to capture textures. We will develop the knowledge of surface, structure and symbols to create a drawing rich with imagery. Distinctive, intricate patterns in nature like grass, twigs,feathers and hair, that seem ordinary, yet offer unexpected visual connections, will be explored through drawing techniques. We will utilize a variety of pencils on Black Arches Cover Stock to advance the layering and blending process, which will improve your toolbox of colored pencil applications. This workshop combines drawing techniques that are adaptable to any skill level.

Hours: 9:00AM – 4:00PM
Cost: $125

Workshop Parking Information

Street Parking

Parking in the downtown shopping district is quite restrictive in Wheaton. On street parking Monday thru Saturday is limited to two (2) hours. For this reason we suggest that the parking garage directly across the street from the league is the best all day option for workshops.

Parking Garage Limitations (maximum parking hours) Monday -Saturday

  • 3 hours........Lower Level, Street Level, and First Ramp
  • 4 hours........Second Level
  • Permit only parking is on the remaining parking spots. Monday thru Friday.
  • On Saturdays and Sundays, we suggest using the all day permit only level which is available to non permit drivers ( eliminates the need to shuffle you car midday).
  • On Fridays: If a workshop is scheduled for a Friday during the day, the DuPage Art League will provide parking permits that have been approved by the Wheaton Police Department. These must be displayed in your car window on the day permit level only.
