Black Book Master Class of 2013
Develop your artistic skills and learn how to burn like the best. During this FREE nine-week class students will learn various graffiti techniques including lettering styles, color-theory and blending, while studying under the world renowned Style Master Enrique PART ONE Torres. In addition, students will receive their own personal black book, pencil and marker-sets.This past spring ten students worked with legendary Style Master Enrique PART ONE Torres and teaching artist Alice Mizrachi to learn about the finer points of the black book (the artist sketchbook), color theory and penciling. As students they received complimentary black books, marker and colored pencil sets and the students also learned about how to value themselves as artists for their work and their process. Their group show was the culmination of the program and although each student has different aspirations, they all came together as the program’s inaugural class. Support young people making art by supporting the Hi-ARTS Black Book Master Class.
