Discover the zen process of mulling paint, the world of pigments, different ingredients and recipes for better “paintability,” all in three hours.  
Each student in this class will make a different color and then share pans of their color so everyone goes home with multiple colors of handmade paint. This way we’ll all learn how different colors work. Watercolors will be made in class but making acrylics is also covered.
