Creating a body of work
In this workshop we’ll take on the fear of using black as a background color, as a starting point, as the star, or as an honorable color among all the others on our palette. In physics and on the light spectrum black is the absence of light, which provides us with a beautiful opportunity to draw the light out with our paints, line makers, and collections of papers. In our lively event we’ll be using small canvases, panels, old vintage book boards, etc. to create a series of magnificent pieces. This mixed media workshop welcomes all curious souls and free spirits who are good and ready to celebrate a less popular color, in fact, one that in art is considered to be the presence of all colors.
Supplies Needed to bring for Class:
10 small surfaces (at least) you can’t wait to work on.
-A sidekick - a used/vintage book with images/photographs/illustrations you love, to be altered. (Book should lay flat when worked on and preferably not glossy)
-Acrylic Paints (a few colors of your choice), a container for water, paper towels or/and rags
