Acrylic & Mixed Media Approaches to Painting and Beyond!

This is a fun, fast-paced four-day crash course in all things acrylic and mixed media. The class is heavy on materials and process to help the students become familiar and comfortable with a variety of image making techniques and a whole lot more. Explore new and innovative approaches to collage and painting using Golden acrylic mediums and pigments with Golden Working Artist Kevin Greeland.

We’ll explore printmaking techniques and transferring those techniques into painting. We’ll also explore collage - Have you struggled with incorporating collage into your paintings? Do you have trouble figuring out how to build layers within your work? Oh, and then there’s Acrylic Encaustic! Do you have difficulty working abstractly or with idea generation? Then this class is for you with step-by-step procedures and lots of hands on exercises. We’ll explore image transfers using wet mediums and creating new surface for painting and collage. Learn the art and mechanics of making dynamic "Gel Skins" for use in collage and to enhance mixed media painting skills.

Learn the fundamentals of acrylic paints and mixed media through a series of comprehensive exercises. Designed to expand your skills and unlock your creativity. Personal direction is emphasized. All skill levels welcome, most materials provided by the instructor plus a Free Sample bag of Golden products along with a number of other free goodies.
