Mixed Media with Acrylics as the Base
Friday | February 24 | 10:30am-3pm
Acrylics are a great base material for mixed media work...they paint beautifully plus the acrylic gels and pastes act like a glue...papers, fabrics and other collage elements will adhere to the painting surface. In this workshop, which will focus on less realistic subject matter and more abstract type work, you learn how to combine collage papers and paint for the under painting. Then work on top with a variety of mediums. For instance, a thin coating of acrylic Ground for Pastel over a collage will act as a ground for dry drawing materials, watercolor or oil paints. I'll have the new Golden Watercolors and Golden's Williamsburg oils for you to try plus all the Golden acrylics in the regular, Fluid and High Flow formulations. I'll have paintings for you to refer to by contemporary mixed media artists and demo how to use oil bar, pastel, markers, pencils and dry pigments over acrylic paint. This is the class to bring all those art materials you have on hand and experiment! For beginner to more advanced painters.
