Mixed Media Painting
Saturday, March 30, 2013
Registration opens Monday, March 11 @ 12am
This mixed media painting workshop will provide a brief introduction to acrylic painting, understanding the properties of acrylic paint and the multitude of accompanying acrylic mediums. Then, expand into experimental techniques such as staining, marbling, dripping, splattering, ink and graphite dispersion, breaking away from a more traditional approach to painting. Students will gain a new approach to painting as they experiment with paint, ink, drawing media on various surfaces like canvas, mylar and masonite.
