Silhouettes Say a Lot: Making and Using Painting Masks from Photographs

Original Art Work By Barbara Fisher


These aren’t the kinds of masks you wear; these are masks that do the opposite of what a stencil does. It is a shape you lay down before adding paint to preserve what is under it. Silhouettes of people, animals and objects are remarkably powerful and can both reveal and conceal. They can represent shadows, people, ideas, or the absence of something. Here, we will make our own masks from photographs either taken from magazines or printed from the internet, and some packing tape to make them durable.

Participants will be provided with heavy weight watercolor paper and various paints and mark making tools.

It is recommended that participants bring am 11 x 17 portfolio or folder to hold art work in.

Registration Deadline: 3/31/17! You can sign up online (below), or download and mail this Registration Form with check or a credit card number.  Don’t forget the catalog number! #B038
