Online – 4 Sessions – Tuesdays, March 7, 14, 21, and 28, 2023, 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., US Eastern time.
If you want to capture someone’s attention, go with gold! This fun workshop will explore using gold for all the text of a piece. We’ll work with gold paint, and experiment with gold leaf using both gesso and miniatum. This workshop will use the skills you have developed in our classes on layout and design, working with gouache, and completing a finished piece.
After you register, you will receive a separate email with log-in information for the online sessions.
