About the Event
This class is about building a painting layer by layer. Students will work on paper, with water media and acrylic inks. Transparent washes will be layered with various styles of broad edged or brush lettering, mark making and handwriting to form a luscious abstract work. Participants will learn asemic writing techniques. In the end we will use some fragments of our works to make a small “pocket book” with watercolor cards that contain some of our favorite words. We’ll work with just a few colors of watercolors and do some color mixing exercises to learn what colors we can make with our limited palette. We’ll write with waterproof pens and do our calligraphy with waterproof acrylic inks in order to be able to layer with our watercolors.
