Acrylic: Start with Textures!


Saturday & Sunday, November 24 & 25    1:00 PM - 4:00 PM each day

Instructor: Jan Fraser

Recommended for Beginners!

Do you have some art experience already? These experiments will bring you more technical inspiration! Art newbie? Great way to start – with textures!

Session 1:  Experiment with ways to create textures in acrylics using modelling paste, gel, crackle paste, and stencils. The focus in this session is on making abstract designs. At the end of this session you will leave your surfaces to dry overnight.

Session 2:  Today, your layers of texture are dry, and you are ready to apply more surface treatments – to make paintings and to add more textural elements.

You will leave the class with several mini studies and 4 8x10” finished canvases and loads of inspiration!
