June Two-day Acrylic Mediums Workshop

All skill levels

June 29th & 30th (Sunday & Monday), 9:30 to 12:30, (one hour lunch), 1:30 to 5:30

Description: Donald Voss, BFA, teacher, professional artist, bookmaker & art material rep for many manufacturers (including Golden Acrylics) has offered to share his working experience with Golden Acrylics that he has taught himself and learned from several mentors, including Nancy Reyner, and Tim Ely.

Acrylic Workshop – The Medium is the Message

Have you ever wondered how to bring natural elements and mixed media together with acrylic painting and color? 

This workshop will focus on the many Golden mediums available to artists.  Working with these media, the workshop will bring fibers, paper, sand, powders and various inks, paint, drawing and mark making tools into the acrylic painting media.  Exploring inks, paint and media together, this workshop is an exploration of media and technique.  Participants are encouraged to explore media as message.  Artists will bring their own images and ideas to the workshop and infuse these with the wild world of Golden media available to them.

Working from the intuitive side of our creativity, this workshop will explore Golden Acrylic Media and a host of mixed media inclusions.  Participants will:

  1. learn how to stain and include paper as a rich colorful layer in more complex work.
  2. learn how to include dirt, leaves, metals, pictures and a host of things in paintings.
  3. develop layers within an acrylic work with different media like charcoal, ink, and pencil.
  4. understand the variety of Golden Media and how it can be used in a mixed media work.
  5. learn how to create substrates and base textures to paint on top of. 

Join us for this two-day workshop in June.

Cost is $150.00 per student for 14 hours of instruction over two days.
