• Watercolor Workshop:

MONTHLY WORKSHOP

Joe Phillips is back with his Monthly Watercolor Workshops.  The next workshops next is on Friday, October 12.

Each session is $50. Call the Art Center to confirm. Bring your favorite watercolor supplies, paints and palette. Joe may include some watercolor papers, and other project supplies. A final matted painting is your reward at the end of a “fun” afternoon.

Those who know Joe are excited that he is returning for this rare opportunity. The word is that he is not only very skilled, but also a joy to have him share his talent. Spend some time sharpening your watercolor skills on Fridays from 11am to 2pm.

• Amazing Acrylic Layers:  Workshop with Amy Shawley Paquette

2-DAY WORKSHOP

Saturday, September 22, 10:00 AM  to 4:00 PM & Sunday, September 23  10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Fee includes supplies:  $230   Space limited.

Discover the excitement of layering acrylic color and mediums during this two-day workshop!  Students will combine a range of color applications like water media, printmaking, and traditional blends/glazes, with layers of gels, mediums, and pastes to create several small mixed media paintings.  Learn about options for getting imagery into your work by using image transfers, stencils, gelli-plates, and other drawing tools.  See how both regular and iridescent pigments can be used to create fabulous color recipes and learn how to push and pull color in your layers by altering their behavior and sheen. This workshop is designed for painters of all experience levels!

The instructor will supply all needed art materials for this workshop, including GOLDEN paints/mediums, tools, and painting surfaces. Students should bring an apron or wear “paint clothes” in case things get messy!  Also bring a large bin or trash bag to lay in your car for taking your projects home – we will have about 6-8 surfaces sized 8×8 or 8×10 inches.
