Renaissance oils workshop offered
PERRYSBURG – Prizm will present "Italian Renaissance Oils: Glazing Techniques for Realism" with
instructor Debra Buchanan June 22 through June 26 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Perrysburg High School in Art
Classroom 130.
Cost of the workshop will be $95 for Prizm members and $125 for non-members.
This technique is based upon the visual mixing of colors, which create optical grays rather than the
physical mixing of colors. Deadline for registration is Tuesday. The classes are designed for serious
art students, junior high age through adults, and can be taken by amateurs and professionals alike.
Registration and membership forms are available at the prizm website www.myprizm.com.
Debra Buchanan received her BFA from the Columbus College of Art and Design in 1993, went on to study in
Europe, and then completed her Masters of Education from Bowling Green State University in 2004.
