In this workshop a student can learn to use charcoal to make a portrait and then apply the portrait to a surface - we will collage and paint around it. You will learn what Susan knows about working with Charcoal on paper that allows you to erase, painting as well as painting with glazes, collages, color combinations that work. Susan will demonstrate each of these and assist participants to creating a beautiful piece of art when they leave.
