In the second class of our four part Foraging Natural Color: Drawing series we will be focusing on earth materials–such as rocks and clay that can be found in your local area. We will walk through how and where to find usable rocks, how to break them down, and their application to art-making. Students will leave with a jar of pigment of their very own and an art material made from the pigments.
Supplies to bring- Two jars with lids, a mortar and pestle, a strainer, a breathing mask, safety goggles, any kind of heavy duty paper and brushes.
Optional- Rocks, minerals, or clay that you in any color you like.
