Sunday June 19, 2016, 12 - 3pm
Learn to identify, gather, process and use a variety of natural materials suitable for making pigments to be used in watercolors, illustration, and mixed media works. This workshop will also present a number of techniques for collaborating with the elements and chance transformations introduced by various natural processes (e.g., allowing your work to be shaped by the wind or flowing water, charred with fire or faded by the sun, and texturized by rusting, being buried in earth, or encrusted with crystals).
All of the techniques are environmentally friendly, non-toxic and many of the materials are locally available and free!
For adults only and individuals with some experience creating 2D artwork.
Please wear suitable clothing to work outside, including sturdy shoes – we will be spending the afternoon in the beautiful park surrounding the Art Center.
