Colorful Antique Bottles Pajama Class

New Dates to be Announced!

3 Reasons To Invest In This Class


Learn why black paper is one of Carmen’s favorite surfaces to work on, plus all her tips and tricks for working on black paper! A dark background adds drama to a still-life composition and by using black paper the background is already completed – you get to the fun stuff right away!


The sanded black paper recommended for this project has a rougher texture which grabs the pencil pigment, allowing you to apply many layers of color much more quickly. Learn how to create vibrant colors on a dark background by adding numerous layers to achieve rich, intense hues.


Glass objects absolutely sparkle on black paper and this project is perfect for learning how to render it. With great contrast between light and dark values, interesting reflections, shapes and colors - it's so much fun to learn how to capture the reflective nature of these Colorful Antique Bottles!

5-Star Teacher

"Carmen is a fabulous instructor. My first time using sanded paper and painting glass and she made it seem so easy. I will definitely take more of her classes when they are offered."

"This workshop was very well done. I thoroughly enjoyed Carmen’s presentation. She demonstrated well, gave clear instructions, answered questions, kept us moving to the point that I was unaware of the time that had passed, provided regular appraisals of our progress if we chose to text her our pictures, and she has a warm, pleasant manner. I wouldn’t hesitate taking another class presented by this artist. Thank you."

"This is my favorite class so far. Carmen did such a great job teaching! She is very patient and makes sure to stop and check in and see if there are any questions. She made drawing glass seem so much easier than it looks. She gave such great tips and advice for working on glass and shiny surfaces. I had never worked on a sanded paper before and there was a great explanation on how to work on a sanded surface with advice and tips for different problems that might occur and ways we could handle them. The class was taught at a good pace and the instructions were clear. I really love the class and look forward to taking more classes taught by Carmen!"
