Embrace the Painted Face

9:00 - 4:30

$ 150  

Let’s get back to the basics and embrace the painted face in its primitive form. Allowing  “less is more” to be our mantra, we will work intuitively with color. As the painting evolves and speaks to us we begin to pull meaning and imagery from the colors and shapes. We will utilize bleeding tissue paper as a vehicle for layering transparent colors.

  • paynes gray acrylic paint
  • heavy body white paint
  • some of your favorite acrylic paint colors - only bring 3-4 favorites
