Beach Bums Bay Watch - A Paintover Workshop

Lisa Bebi

Friday April 14

[back to quicklinks]
$ 185  

This class honors the more real beach bombshells.

This is a fun “paintover” class.  Paintover is a term used to describe painting on top of black and white photocopies. My chosen images are of women beach goers who show
their best sides; their backsides!  Feel free to bring your own images or use mine.
Learn how to colorize and paint on photocopied images. Then learn how to adhere them to a substrate without causing bubbles, tears or wrinkles. Lastly, the finished piece(s) gets varnished with UV protection. These works make entertaining art that invite conversation, and, win awards! 

Your photocopies must be emailed to the teacher no later than a week before class so that she can adjust images and print out on copy paper to bring to class - ready to paint.

Kit fee of $65 includes:

Everything you need for this class including but not limited to:
Instructions, photocopied and sized images, paint, brushes, markers, pencils, medium and varnish, wood panel and canvas substrates, paper towels, palette paper and a water can.
