Levels: Beginner, Intermediate,
Workshop Fee: $525
Class Size: 12 (Max)

Your hands-on, two-part course with Laurie will introduce you to the aesthetics and technical aspects of hand coloring – and then give you time to practice and work on your own photograph. You’ll leave with images you love and the tools to create more. 

This class will discuss taking photographs that are suited for hand coloring, selecting your materials, coloring techniques, and preserving your finished work. Students leave with at least 4 finished, fine art pieces of their own creation along with all the knowledge necessary to continue on your own.

• You will learn about taking photographs that are suited for hand coloring, selecting your materials, coloring techniques, and preserving your finished work.

• Before Class students will receive instructions on how to select a great image for hand coloring, and how to  upload images for print. Digital Silver Imaging will print the prints on silver gelatin (silver halide) paper and deliver to MMW in time for class. You will pay DSI directly for your prints. Suggestion is to have a minimum of 4 images printed by DSI. All images have to be uploaded to DSI no later than Feb 28th.
