Well I have not been posting much to my blog lately but I have been very busy painting, with acrylics. So alot of learning, but nothing worthy of posting...yet :) I am organizing a couple of acrylic workshops with a working artist from Golden, Sara McIntosh-Robichaud, so I am hoping to get over the learning curve even quicker :)
March 13/14 will be a 2 day workshop using Watermedia which will cover how to prepare your canvas to paint to allow you to exhibit without glass. You will also work with the fluid acrylics on a variety of surfaces with an array of textured gels used as grounds.
April 10/11 will be a 2 day workshop using Golden Open Acrylics which stay wet 10 times longer than traditional acrylics. You will develop valuable glazing skills, learn how to mix your colors and which colors are best for glazing.
Both workshops will be held at Coquitlam Community Center and the fee for each is $150 for both days (fee includes all paints and mediums) plus a room fee to be determined based on attendance. If you are interested, please contact me to register as spote are filling up fast!
