$50 cancellation fee. No refunds after April 29 You've taken a beautiful photograph and want to make it a one-of-a-kind piece of art, but you are intimidated by the thought of picking up a paintbrush or colored pencil to enhance your image. Hand coloring a black and white photograph is an art form all by itself and much simpler and more accessible than you think. Laurie has created a process that is easy and accessible to all age groups and artistic abilities. This hands-on course introduces you to the history, esthetics, and technical aspects of hand coloring. Laurie will discuss taking photographs that are suited for hand coloring, select your materials, coloring techniques, and preserve your finished work. Students leave with at least 2 finished, fine art pieces along with the knowledge necessary to create on their own. The workshop is subsidized by the Lois and Jim Richmond Workshop Fund.
