Marbling offers a great opportunity to study both pattern and color. In this class, students will learn all aspects of acrylic paint marbling from mixing paint to perfecting intricate designs. We’ll start at the beginning and move through both historic and contemporary patterns, creating a portfolio of fine papers for use in many projects. In addition to many sheets of paper, students will also marble a silk scarf.
