Layering with Acrylics

May GOLDEN Acrylic Essentials Workshop

May 7th and 8th, 10 AM to 4PM

Learn the fundamentals of layering with acrylic paints and mediums in this hands-on workshop. Work with a variety of color applications using Golden’s Fluid Acrylics, High Flow Acrylics, and Open Acrylics — We’ll dabble with QoR Watercolors. Exploring through collage and painting with impasto effects, glazing, printmaking, water-media, and ink-like effects. Discover how gels and pastes can used to make multiple layers, creating interesting textures, learn image transfers, acrylic “skins”, and create surfaces that simulate encaustic waxes and much more. We’ll use Iridescent paints to create a metal like finish that we can then create a faux patina with Fluid paints. Students will make several paintings using acrylic products provided by Golden Paint with tools and materials provided by the instructor. All levels are welcome. Free literature packet and a free sample bag of Golden products!

Workshop fee is $250 and class size limited to 12 students.
