A simple art form with endless variations. Developed by surrealist Max Ernst, this method allows you to capture a textured surface by laying paper over the subject and rubbing the paper with a pencil. Learn the origins of the technique as you exercise your imagination creating art from unusual and unexpected textures.

A glass of wine, light hors d'oeuvres, and all required art materials are included in your enrollment fee.
