Liquid Graphite Drawing Ready to take your drawings to a new level! Join us at the Mariemont Barn for a fun experimental class featuring the use of water-soluble graphite in pencil, stick, disk and powdered form. The resulting artworks range from the realistic to the abstract. This is a new medium and this Expedition promises to entertain and allow you to explore your inner love for art.

Pinhole Photography Turn a closet into a darkroom, and make a camera out of a shoebox in this Expedition. Youâ€™ll learn about contrast and composition on the art side, and the exposure, chemicals and developing process on the science side. Take your own pictures with your hand-made shoebox camera.
