Spokane Art School has three workshops scheduled for the last two weeks of February:
Joan Smith will teach a two-session monotype printmaking workshop. Monotype is a spontaneous process using painting and printmaking techniques in a wide selection of materials. The end product is one-of-a-kind.
The workshop is from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Cost is $75, plus a $15 lab fee.
Loralee Gray will teach the art of face-painting from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Feb. 25. Cost of the workshop, open to eighth-grade students through adults, is $20.
“Simple Encapsulation Molds for Casting” will be from 1 to 5 p.m. Feb. 28 and March 1. The class, taught by sculptor Roger Ralston, is open to high school students and adults.
Ralston will teach participants to use cast rubber mold materials to make simple molds of complicated subjects.
