[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

Building an abstract painting with calculated abandon. Composition, Color, Texture, Layers, Glazing, Mark Making, Finishing Touches and Staring from a distance.... it’s all part of the process.
This class starts with a demo of how I start a series of abstracts. We’ll work on 3 paintings simultaneously- adding texture medium and materials with layers of paint to create some beautiful pieces. I’m also going to show you how I create my signature sides.
  Kit fee of $20 payable to instuctor at beginning of class includes:

Includes a Texture Material and Collage pack, handout, use of texture paste, stencils, spray paints
Supplies Needed to bring for Class:

3 cradled wood panels https://www.dickblick.com/items/07045-1912/ size and dimensions are up to you. This link is for a 9x12, 10x10 is also a nice size. Don’t go over 12x12 as we have limited table space. I’ll be using random sizes.
Your acrylic set, Golden fluid acrylics in your favorite colors
Soft Gel Medium, I use Golden
Brushes, palette knife, water container, paper towels, baby wipes
