Join professional artist Lisbeth Firmin in a one of a kind workshop in the art of grisalle. This form of painting uses only shades of grey or other neutral greyish colors. Lisbeth will take the participants through the history of the form, technique and style. Using only large brushes participants will explore this monochromatic ancient art form and create pieces of their own. Beginners welcome. Supplies will be provided. Please bring a bag lunch.
