This mixed media workshop focuses on the inherent beauty of black as a color. It will incorporate both drawing and painting processes and honors the rich and varied tonal and textural effects one can achieve with a restrained palette of blacks, greys and white. We will work a variety of media which will include black and white gesso, ink, graphite, water based graphite and graphite powder. Marker pens will be included in the mix as will both pencils and soft pastels. This exciting, innovative workshop is for continuing artists of all mediums.


Colorist and visionary, American artist MIRA M. WHITE is an award winning painter with an exhibition record both domestic and international. When viewing her multi-media artworks one bears witness to a personal mythology of deeply felt images that stem from a lifelong preoccupation with and devotion to life as an ongoing journey of change and transformation. She has a consistent group of collectors who have responded to her subtle, transformative pieces.

Her professional responsibilities include a full teaching schedule of classes and workshops in multiple media. Widely respected in the Northern California Bay Area art communities, she has in recent years broadened her teaching venues to include workshops across the country.

Mira’s work frequently appears in both online and hard copy art books and magazines. Art Journey: Abstract Painting as well as another anthology, Journeys into Abstraction, include her work. The Pastel Journal will be doing a second article on her work this fall. Mira has earned a BFA with High Distinction and an MFA with Distinction CCAC. She is a member of CWA, NWA, IEA, Berkeley Art Center, Arts Benicia and OPUS.
