ACRYLIC ESSENTIALS PAINT WORKSHOPS

Join in the fun and explore the vast possibilities available with acrylic paints, gels and mediums. Local Vernon artist Teyjah Mc Aren, who has been trained by Golden Artist Colors has now opened up her new art studio at Predator Ridge and will be starting new Acrylic Workshops. A free Lecture/Demo will also be included with this workshop. Featured topics: Acrylic gels - how to use gels to save money and create textures. What are GAC’s and their various uses. What is the difference between gels and mediums? Color mixing tips and how to obtain clean color every time. What are grounds and how best to use them? Glazing - how to properly glaze. Learn how to use acrylic products to make surfaces for watercolors, graphite, charcoal, colored pencil, oil and soft pastel.

A 10% art supply discount at Nadine’s Fine Art in Vernon will also be part of this exciting class.

ACRYLIC ESSENTIALS WORKSHOP
Be prepared to paint, learn and have fun! This intensive workshop covers the basics; understanding mineral and modern pigments for clean color mixing, the use of gels to create textures and extend paints (saving you $). Explore glazing options with Fluids and Heavy Body Paint. Apply grounds to create unusual surfaces. Discover how to work with delicate, transparent washes and thick impasto application. A boundless journey! Best suited for Beginners & Intermediates but open to all levels of experience.

This first introductory class is a technique and painting class which ex-plains and explores the potential of all acrylics and is an excellent introduction to acrylic painting. I will be repeating this class a few times and eventually I will be adding different technique and painting classes (such as Acrylic Watermedia Techniques on unusual surfaces, Faux Encaustic, etc…) followed by actual “How to paint Abstracts” as the year progresses so keep your eyes open for these classes.

The workshop fee is $100 per person/per day (unless you are using Square or Interac for payment then it is $103). Cash and E-transfers preferred. Interac and Square Reader available but will need to charge the 3% surcharge. Payment to be applied at time of registration.

This is a one day class and will run 5 to 6 hours depending on the amount of students and student needs. Lots of individual attention as the maxi-mum class size is held to 5 people. Class will begin at 9:30 and end at 4 pm the latest. A gift package worth $35 will also be included while sup-plies last. A minimum of two people required for class to run.
