Acrylic Surprise with Joy Tartter

This 3 day workshop will be an adventure in color, values & composition requiring a touch of forethought & a lot of imagination! 

The main materials are acrylic inks, regular acrylics, watercolors, a very good spray bottle for water, large sheets of 140# or heavier watercolor paper, canvas "paper",  brushes, Saran Wrap (preferred),

wax paper, rags &/or paper towels, styrofoam plates for mixing and anything you may want to experiment with. Oh! AND be ready to do some serious laughing!

Because the inks can be pricey (Daler Rowney), consider sharing the cost with a friend.  Michael's coupons do apply to Liquitex ink. Choose the colors you want to use. I use the primaries, secondaries, a brown, a sienna, paynes grey and others that just might give a "edge". 

May 18 and 19 10-4pm

$90 with a minimum of 4 participants and maximum of 8

 PS - don't wear good clothes! Creativity does better when free from worry!
