This is an opportunity to start the year with a different step, to explore multiple mediums and a variety of unique possibilities. Move from the fundamental principals of your artistry to more avant-garde methods making what may have seemed bizarre part of your regular drawing & painting repertoire. We will explore: Ink as a drawing medium and a colorful ground to later draw into & under, Scrumbling, the process for creating a totally uniquely abstracted ground for your work, Drawing in Reverse, white chalk &/or graphite onto Black paper & boards, Amplify your color with color pencil on black paper/board and finally, explore the translucent properties of ink/gouache/watercolor on Mylar. Our drawing surfaces (paper/boards/mylar/dura-lar) will be instructor provided as well as many unique tools & a $10 Materials fee is PAYABLE TO INSTRUCTOR at time of workshop. Instructor will also have inks/pastels/NeoColorII and other mediums available for students to use. See www.spruillarts.org for a list of supplies you will need to bring to class.
