Different types of masking techniques will be demonstrated and practiced to cover and later to show part of a background or paper surface. The result often brings light or depth into a composition. Besides using liquid mask, experiments will be made with crayons, tape, and stenciling, especially with leaves. The shape and character of background marks and the importance of value contrast will be illustrated. Bring a few favorite quotations of 25 words or less. A few materials not listed will be supplied to you.
