 Main Topic:  "Colored Pencil as Stained Glass" by Ellen White
Do you like the look of stained glass, but don't have the time, materials, or budget? Well, you can achieve the look of stained glass with your watercolor pencils and a few other materials that you already have. In this program, we will learn how to take a simple line drawing and turn it into a beautiful piece of art that looks like stained glass.
