This workshop is for beginners and experienced artists alike who want to learn new techniques and be inspired by innovative applications of acrylic paints. Students will focus on design, format, and technique while using acrylic paint, mediums, and various mixed media options. Work completed will be expressive from a non-objective approach. Demos and group critiques will be short and to the point so that more time can be spent experimenting with various techniques.
Below are samples of work that may be explored within this workshop:
Refreshments and light snacks will be provided. Please pack your own lunch for this workshop daily. If you cannot do so, there are local places where staff can recommend you order boxed lunches. Students will need to pick up these lunches during their designated lunch.
