Daggi Wallace: Saturday March 10th from 6 to 9pm
Monoprint with pastel class
Monoprinting is a fun way to loosen up and not get pressured into tight realism. We apply paint to small sheets of glass, press paper onto it and see the image when we lift the paper. After it dries, we use a variety of materials to enhance whatever image we see in the print: pastels, pencil, ink pens, colored pencil, watercolor pencils.
You will go home with several small works to frame and hang.
Daggi Wallace is an exceptional pastel artist specializing in contemporary realism. She is an Eminent Pastelist of the International Association of Pastel Societies, Master Pastelist of the Pastel Society of America and Signature Member of the Pastel Society of the West Coast and Pastel Society of the Southwest.
