Color on Metal Made Easy Workshop

with Gillian Gussack

(no experience needed)


Saturday, December 14, 2019

10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Gillian Gussack will conduct a one-day workshop on colored pencil on copper.  We will explore the joy of drawing and design with prisma colors.  No soldering necessary for this impressive technique!

Great time to squeeze out one more Holiday gift.

Bring a project made in copper to color such as a pendant, earrings or an ornament and Prismacolor pencils.

Come play and have fun as you discover the easy way to add color to your art work.  You will start by applying gesso to your project piece.  While it is drying Gillian will provide a sample piece and conduct a discussion on design and the process of color blending and enhancement.

Bring a lunch or take a short lunch break.  You won't want to miss any of this class!
