Laura will walk through her own method of creating oil and watercolor paint from stone. This process includes crushing, sifting, and then applying pigment to painting medium. Laura will also discuss basic Catskill geology, safety procedures, areas of the Catskills where she collects her stones, benefits of creating your own artist materials, and applying these unique pigments to your painting process. Each student will create a small amount of their own stone pigment to bring home.

 

*Feel free to bring a stone or two you have collected.

*This workshop is for adult artists and non-artists alike. No previous knowledge required.
