with Laurie Klein
Learn the art of hand coloring a black and white photograph. 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 an image 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 2 finished, fine art pieces of their own creation along with a hand coloring starter kit, and all the knowledge necessary to continue on your own.
