Due to a special request by a couple of local artists, I am unexpectedly offering a 2-day workshop this August. We have room for more participants, so if you’re interested, let me know right away. I rarely do this type of workshop anymore, so this is an unusual opportunity.
Acrylic Media & Techniques
August 23 & 24, 2014
Saturday & Sunday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
One hour break in the middle; please bring your lunch.

Several acrylic gels and mediums will be introduced along with a number of ways to use them to create a wide variety of effects. These processes can be used to create unique collage papers and/or may be used directly on a canvas or board as a means to develop a painting or mixed media work. Some of the processes employ ordinary items like wax, pencil, salt and plastic wrap. Other processes are done purely with acrylic gels, mediums, and paints. Our exploration will include light molding paste, clear tar resin, glass bead gel, high solid gel, acrylic paint, and an acrylic gel mixture that I developed to be used as collage glue and/or added to paint. You will leave this workshop with an increased knowledge of acrylic gels, mediums, and paints (including some we won’t use, but I will tell you about), a good number of processes to experiment with further (alone and in combination), and approximately 30 unique papers for use in collage or as the beginning layer of a painting or mixed media work.
There will be an extra materials fee. Small containers of acrylic gels & mediums are very expensive. Rather than have each person buy their own, it’s more economical for you if I buy large containers and divide them between all the participants. I will keep this cost as low as possible.
