IN PERSON CLASS taught by Jodi Reeb
In this exciting one-day workshop, you’ll explore painting with R&F oil pigment sticks which offer the freedom to discover oil painting while building up many layers using experimental techniques. Oil pigment sticks allow you to draw or paint directly on the surface without brushes, palettes, tubes or solvents. We’ll also explore creating Monotype prints which has a unique form of expression to create unique marks and imagery that can only be achieved using stencils, masks and texture tools. Monotype is the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques and is often called the “the painterly print”. All levels welcome.
