Siren Nation, amplifying the voices of women in the arts for the past 15 years, is proud to present Siren Nation Speaks—a monthly online series of free arts workshops, talks, and performances.

On August 8, we’re excited to present a free “Intro to Digital Coloring” workshop!

Professional color artist Marissa Louise will teach an introduction to digital coloring, with a focus on graphic novels and comic books. She’ll cover some basic color theory, the difference between RGB and CMYK color, how contemporary colorists are now making comics, what tools to use, and the basics of printing.

Closed captioning will be provided on Zoom for accessibility.
