Have you ever wanted to paint and not sure where to start? Do you paint in Acrylics but think you could have better control of your materials? This intense, 4 hour workshop is geared toward making sense of the technical aspects of acrylics and finding your groove. Learn tips to control the brush, palette, color mixing and drying times. We will explore a triad of Fluid Acrylics, mixing with polymer mediums to develop an understanding of Modern color mixing. Utilizing a series of exercises, we will discover the beautiful versatility of fluids as we pursue layers of washes and glazes. In the second session of the workshop we use Heavy Body acrylic to extend the color with Gels to develop textures and altar luminosity. With this thicker viscosity of paint we will explore the Mineral (inorganic pigments) to examine opacity, color mixing and impasto techniques. Expect loads of information, money saving tips and new reference for your work. I recommend this hands-on event for any artists, needing a refresher or a full jump start into acrylic.

One 5 hour session. Limited to 8 students
Instructor: Corrine Loomis Dietz
