Acrylic "Surprise" Workshop
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 (these can be cut to create smaller works), canvas "paper", brushes, Saran Wrap (preferred), wax paper, rags &/or paper towels, styrofoam plates for mixing and anything you may want to experiment with. Plan to do about 6 large pieces. 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".
Coming in February!
