This workshop will focus on creating small and large scale narratives of the artist's choice. The artist will create a story as a source of inspiration and then show that visually in a finished piece. The artist will primarily work with pens, inks and watercolors as these materials add a uniqueness and sense of personality within the piece.
Materials are not included in the class fee. A list of suggested tools and materials will be provided prior to the workshop. This class meets in Sulfur Studios' 2nd floor Annex and is stair access only.
