Learn how to apply gold leaf and to bring its warmth and beauty into your art. In this course, we will be incorporating gold leaf into three artworks that we will be completing in class. Each piece will use gold leaf in its composition in different ways – as separate shapes and integrated within other shapes. Gold leaf can be challenging to work with at first, but with a little practice you will be able to handle it with confidence.
Special materials will be provided as part of the course fee. Participants will receive a list of basic supplies to bring prior to class.
