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, silverpoint, 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.
