Adventures with Monochromatic Mediums:
The “Values” of Limited Color
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 9-2:30

Instructor: Jean Carlson Masseau


Using easy-to-draw botanical subjects, discover the beauty that can be achieved through skillfull use of a single color. Instruction will focus on value and composition as important concepts, including the use of visual examples to reinforce understanding. Observation tips will facilitate drawing a simple botanical subject, and students will use walnut ink to create a unique value drawing. After lunch we will create a limited-palette botanical drawing with colored pencil on toned paper.

Emphasis will be on beginner-friendly subjects.  All levels welcome!  Class limit is 12.
List of materials that students will need to bring will be supplied.  

Fee: $85 please pay in advance to ensure a space. Send your check to:
