I am from the north west part of CT and have been taking classes at the New York botanical gardens. I am a retired tax accountant. grandma gardner quilter and a teddy bear maker. I teach class at the adult ed here in my area. I just had a big bday but I treated my self to a box of 120 color pencils. Is there any one interested in this in my area? Lorraine

Hi, Lorraine! :wave: Welcome to Wet Canvas!

I don't know anyone in your neck of the woods, but take a wander through the Colored Pencil forum. You can find it here (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=66). Loads of really wonderful folks to share your work with & nudge you in the right direction if you need help. The colored pencil library, found here (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=98), is an excellent resource to help you figure out how to do things with those new pencils!

Looking forward to seeing some of your work!

Hi Lorraine

Welcome hope you will have fun with your many pencils!
I am taking a botanical art class at The London Art college at the moment.
Did you enjoy your class?
