Masterclass & Interactive workshop: “Radically Sustainable Watercolors”

22nd May 2021

Do you want to learn to make sustainable and natural non-toxic watercolors?  

Are you an artist or someone like me who uses watercolors as a medium of expression?  Do you want to create something that doesn’t harm our environment? Well, you need not come up with some eco-friendly innovation to create art. Throughout the ages, nature has been an apothecary of arts. One can obtain myriad hues of beautiful pigments from nature. Natural pigments are the purest form of color and their ability to generate a vibrant hue is unparalleled.

However, a common misconception is that earth, minerals &  natural organic pigments are “non-toxic because they are natural”.  Earth, rocks, and plants can have properties that could potentially be toxic or even lethal to human life; subject to the context of use and the degree of its acute and/or cumulative exposure.

So, which natural watercolors are toxic/non-toxic? Which are sustainable? Which are finite, but nevertheless are abundant enough to last millennia?

These are the topics that were addressed during my webinar and interactive workshop held on the 29th of May 2021.
