$ 170  

Bring your imagination and experience the joy and freedom of abstraction. You will learn some new and creative ways to work with water based ink, markers and watercolor crayons. Modern inks are a far more versatile medium than you might imagine. The intense colours, transparency and fluidity make them well worth a try, especially if you already enjoy watercolours
This class will introduce you to the tools, techniques, theories and principles for designing an abstract. You will learn about building a firm foundation of structure for your paintings using shape, value, color, edges and center of interest. Students will play with some stencils, stamps and resists and mark making. This class is designed for the beginner as well as the more experienced student.

Materials Fee $15 paid at beginning of class includes:

8 colors off ink to share
Stamps and Stencils to share
Aqua Boards to Work on
Markers and Watercolor Crayons to share. 
Other Misc Supplies

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:
