Discover the excitement of using acrylic color and mediums during this two-day workshop!  Students will combine both traditional and contemporary painting techniques using a range of color applications (like washes, glazes, and blending) layered with gels, mediums, and pastes.  We will explore several color formulations, experiment with a variety of mark making tools, and create unique textures.  We will develop several small painting surfaces throughout the workshop, so students get working knowledge of the breadth of acrylic products available.  This workshop is designed for painters of all experience levels!

All supplies needed for this workshop, including GOLDEN paints/mediums, tools, and painting surfaces, will be provided by the instructor.  Students should bring an apron or wear “paint clothes” in case things get messy!  Also bring note-taking supplies and a trash bag to lay in your car for taking your projects home (in case they are tacky/wet) – we will have about 6-8 surfaces sized 6×6 up to 9×12 inches.
