Click here to register

In this workshop, I propose to explore new resources of black and white and shadows of grayscales. For this, we will work with black ink (brush and nib), black&white gouache, water soluble graphite, oil base black pencils, graphite pencil, etc 

We’ll explore pencil stroke textures and create wonderful accidents with ink spots. 

We will look for a sensitive view of the environment and try to convey different emotions in our sketches.
