This Fall, Don Colley, one of Faber-Castell’s celebrated instructors and a graduate of University of Texas in Austin will begin his second illustrated road trip across America. This road trip will cover several cities where Don Colley will be holding drawing and illustration demos and we're excited to announce that he will be coming to Marsh Harbor Studio on October 30th!
He will be giving three, two hour (approximately) demos this day. EVERYONE is welcome to come and watch at anytime, HOWEVER, actual seating inside these workshops is very limited.

ALSO, all Faber Castell products will be discounted an extra 15% on this day only! ALSO, there will be giveaways!
It's going to be a great time, guys!

10 a.m. - 12 p.m.
1 p.m. - 3 p.m.

The demos will focus on Don’s drawing style and why Faber-Castell’s PITT® artist pens have allowed him to do that. He carries with him a number of finished and in-process pieces that illustrate the difference in using premium quality Faber-Castell products. His main staples include PITT® Artist Pens, Polychromos Color Pencils, Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencils, charcoals and graphites. Faber-Castell’s high quality art materials are known for their vibrant colors, and durability. All the mediums are waterproof when dry, lightfast, and archival.
Don encourages attendees to bring their sketchbooks and drawing materials, as the best demos are often the ones that become more hands on for the attendees. At each city, he will be visiting local retail art supply partners and schools. There, he will be leading workshops and passing out samples of Faber-Castell drawing materials. He has even been known to take the group outside to do some urban sketching! This is his second road trip, and plans are underway to cover the Northeast on his 2013 road trip.
A self-proclaimed old school, Don prefers not carry any electronics including cell phones, computers or cameras on his self. Instead, his life and memories are shown through his sketches- each detailed piece reflecting more than camera lens can reveal.
