Spring Workshop

Rebel Romans with Barbara Close

March 9 & 10th, 2024

10am-1pm (MDT) Saturday and Sunday

Join us for our ONLINE workshop with Barbara Close.  Barbara will be our instructor for the two days, 3-hour sessions.

Understanding Roman proportions will give us a basis on which to build. Some people are a bit intimidated by these guys, but we'll have fun with them using press-release techniques and more Versal-like characters.

Open to all skill levels.

Price: $75 for members, $95 for non-members

Supply List:

-Pencil(s): regular #2 and a 2B or 4B (softer lead)

-pencil sharpener or sandpaper paddle for sharpening

-I like Mitchell nibs for smaller work: 4, 5, 6 or equivalent nibs will be fine;

I’m also recommending pointed nibs. I like Nikko-G or Zebra-G

-C-Thru Ruler (length at least 12”)

-Eraser (white vinyl i.e. Tombow Mono or Stadler Mars) or what you have on hand

-Practice paper (recommend Canson Pro Layout Marker or other transparent paper)

-Good paper: 90# Arches Hot Press, Stonehenge or your own favorite

-Gouache color favorites, mixing well, water containter & mixing brush

For a couple of projects: we will need a watercolor brush #4 or #6 and watercolors
