For those who have little or no experience with acrylic mediums and techniques. Perfect for the procrastinators and the petrified. So you can't draw a straight line? Relax, have fun creating crooked lines. There's no right or wrong in this fun, informative two-day workshop. Give it a go without fear of failure, and head home with a completed artwork and new-found skills and ideas to continue mixed media painting on your own.
Explore the magic of acrylic paint; make it slide, drip, splatter, pool, sparkle, veil and reveal. Create interesting effects with gels, fluid acrylics, hard-bodied paints, reflective and metallic paints.
Applying paint and paper, delve into key design compositions such as the cruciform, medallion and bridging. Learn how to make your own collage papers, and experiment with geli prints, stamps, stencils, cardboard and photographs.
