Adventures in Watercolor, Drawing + Illustration
This watercolor workshop is an introduction and exploration designed for adults of all artistic abilities. Explore wet-on-wet washes to let colors flow and bleed into each other, creating beautifully unexpected effects. Using washes on a dry surface, you'll experience the reverse—control and form. Both methods will encourage your creativity and skills. We'll be inspired by lush vegetables, fruits, florals, textural displays and decorative lettering.

Supply Info: Please bring one pad of Strathmore Watercolor Paper 140# in either of these sizes: 9" x 12" or 11" x 14"; and a pad of lightweight tracing paper, any brand will do. (more)REGISTER

Camera-less Photography Without a Darkroom: The Chemigram
A unique and rare alternative photo process, chemigrams quickly and easily yield results that are as singular as they are spectacular even for the beginner. More related in method and approach to painting and printmaking than to photography, chemigrams use no camera or darkroom. We'll be working in ambient light with darkroom chemicals on black and white photo paper to create subtly colored prints, using a variety of resists, from simple household ingredients like honey and glue, to specialized formulas. We'll also explore hand-coloring methods. No prior photo, printmaking or painting experience is required. (more)REGISTER
