Suminagashi Paper Marbling Workshop

Monday, December 3, 10-2:30, $65

Explore this fascinating Japanese paper marbling technique using water-based boku inks floated on plain tap water in a shallow tray. The name suminagashi literally means spilled ink!

Learn how to create intricate marbled papers using sumi inks dropped from small paint brushes into a tray of water and printed on rice paper. Patterns and special colorful effects are achieved using a bamboo stylus and eyedroppers. This process is meditative, mesmerizing, and creates subtle, found-in-nature patterns and rings that are one-of-a-kind. We will create dozens of marbled rice papers which can be later used to collage onto heavier paper and developed further.

Brave Color!

Tuesdays, January 15-February 26, no class February 5, 12–2:30, $179

Learn to mix watercolor with confidence in this six-week course! We’ll unravel the mysteries of color theory, transparency/opacity, granulation and staining pigments. We will learn how to mix luminous color instead of mud, vibrant grays, shades and blacks with limited and split-primary palettes. We’ll study value, intensity and color bias, and spend much of our class time making reference charts and color wheels which will be a great resource long after the class ends. We will put our color smarts to work through practice painting projects between classes.
