$ 150  

This whimsical acrylic painting starts with a creative under painting of colors and textures and then painted with a glaze of pigment leaving only a limited amount of the original under painting showing. The step by step instruction enables beginner and experienced painters to complete a successful painting. Your creativity will guarantee an original piece of art! I anticipate that paintings will be completed in class.

Students  bring to class:
• Your usual painting supplies which should include at least 2 water containers, paper towels, pop up tissues.
• Brushes: You may use your regular watercolor/acrylic brushes. I use Scharff 960 Aqua Flow Super Round, Scharff #310 White Nylon round brushes sizes #8 and #4, and a flat 1” brush. I will have Scharff brushes for purchase if you choose.
• A black permanent pen and a white pen are fun but not necessary
• If you have them, water soluble crayons are fun but not necessary
• Hair dryer is helpful, but not necessary.

Materials included in $20 supply fee paid to instructor at beginning of class 
• Written instructions including line drawing and color photo
• Arches watercolor paper (11” x 15”)
• Use of gesso, fluid acrylics, sprays, stencils and misc. supplies

Many of the required supplies may be pre-ordered from Artistic Artifacts.  They will be ready and waiting for you to pick up when you arrive at the retreat.  For further info and to place your order,  please visit:
