Join Ming Franz for Splash Color workshop, starting from black and white splash to traditional splash to abstract splash. Splash using Asian Ink, Watercolor on Mulberry paper. Acrylic on canvas and wood panel is Ming’s newest approach to splash color abstract painting.
The foundation of this process is based on principles originating in Tang Dynasty China with a technique known as Po Mo. Essentially the artist freely “splashes” liquid color onto stacks of dampened sheets of mulberry paper.
After the wet sheets are left to dry for several hours, they are separated so the real magic can begin: discovering if the resulting dried sheets are abstracts able to stand on their own, or if they can be enhanced with more paint, whatever the imagination sees in the heart of the work.
A $45 materials fee should be paid directly to the instructor on the first day of class.
Please see the materials list for additional supplies. Please sign up early; class size is limited.
