The art of grisaille was first developed during the Renaissance. It is a process by which the toning of a drawing is completed first, and then the color is added. This accomplished 3 things: improved form of subject, reduced use of color, and speed of completion. Join us for a one day workshop where we will try various approaches to this technique.  Materials list below.

Instructor: Jeanne Perrier
