This painting and the past few Little Gems pieces on wood are my process preparing to teach my upcoming workshop on Whidbey Island in the fall:

Sept 21-23, 2018

Tuition: $500 skill level:  all, some experience with acrylics recommended

This is a fun and experimental class for artists eager to create paintings using transparent and translucent layers of acrylics and mixed media.

Using gels, mediums, and pastes; we will drip, pour, scrape and etch; adding and removing parts of layers to create intrigue and texture in our paintings. Artists may incorporate collage, use stencils, and sketch or paint any scene or object that inspires them. The focus of the workshop will be to learn how to create layers that look like encaustic (wax) using various polymer mediums with acrylic paints.

Students are responsible for their own paints, mediums, tools, and substrates. A comprehensive materials list will be provided.

Some experience painting with acrylics is a plus, though beginners will not be turned away, this workshop may be overwhelming for an artist who has no experience painting with acrylics.
