Course Details

This course on coffee painting will look at using coffee as a medium for painting or creating an art piece. Coffee as a readily available ingredient is an exciting medium to work with. Though working with coffee creates monochromatic paintings, there are various effects and variations that can be achieved using coffee as a painting medium to make coffee painting different or realistic. Students in this course will also learn how to use coffee to get a variety of variations from the really dark tone to the lighter tone by adding water to coffee. They will also be taught the use of a brush used for painting the different portions in a coffee artwork. In this entire learning process, the student will be guided to create a complete art piece, right from drawing to filling it up or painting it with coffee to create a unique piece of art.
