    Photographers have been adding color to their black and white images since
    the discovery of the photographic process. However, the emergence of color
    film in the 1930s lead to a rapid decline in hand coloring. By the 1970s,
    hand coloring regained popularity as a creative tool to enhance black and
    white photographs. Today, hand coloring is an important technique of
    working photo artists.

    Students will hand color their own images using oils and pencils and
    consider the artistic possibilities of a range of materials, images, and
    printing techniques. Oils and pencils will be provided. Students must bring
    2 to 3 fiber matte prints and a mat board one size larger than their prints.

    Elizabeth Holmes specializes in infrared, hand colored photographs.

    Too bad I'm so far away! I've always like the look of a hand color black and white photograph.
