Acrylic Jump Start!
Techniques for Reviving Old Paintings
ZOOM workshop; dates TBD
We all have paintings (watercolors or acrylics--on paper or canvas) that seem destined for the recycle bin or stuck in limbo, but what if we could repurpose them and turn them into something completely different? Join Liz for this lively 3 hour acrylic painting workshop (via ZOOM) where she will demo (and you will paint along). Liz will provide ideas on how to successfully resolve color, shape and value issues as we rework our paintings.
Topics covered include:
Creating Paintings With Impact
(2 day Acrylic/Collage Workshop via ZOOM)
ZOOM Workshop April 28, 29, 2021 9-4pm PST
For more information or to get on the waitlist (class is full):
Liz will demonstrate how to construct a strong, connected composition, how to juxtapose acrylic paint shapes with patterned collage papers to make your art memorable and personal. It's all about composition, color, value, line and shape. Color has strong emotional impact, but is much more effective if played off neutrals. We will discuss winning color combos, with lots of short demos and some informative slideshows led by this award-winning instructor. Participants should have basic acrylic painting skills and a desire to jump in with both feet and learn new acrylic and collage techniques.
Subject matter is the choice of each artist, so participants are free to paint figure, landscape, still life, abstract or non-objective work. Liz tends to focus on abstracted figures from her imagination, but her mixed media approach works for landscapes, birds, and still life as well. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced artist, you will benefit from this hands-on workshop, gaining a new perspective on how to build and design a better painting.
