About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Thursday, March 10, 2022.

This beautiful and versatile medium allows the artist to incorporate aspects of both drawing and painting. Learn color mixing and layering, and different effects with crosshatching, stippling, burnishing, and varied paper surfaces. Through lectures and demonstrations that include contemporary and historical practices from around the world, students will gain a strong foundation in this popular art form.
