Pattern and Line: Building Surface with Acrylics

October 27, 2019 – November 2, 2019

Jenny Day

During this workshop students learn to create pattern, abstraction and surface with acrylics and mixed media. Using tape, collage, ink, pencil, and acrylic paint, students will create multiple small paintings with a theme of their choice. Building of surface includes the use of gel medium, natural materials, layering of glazes, subtractive and additive methods, and experimenting with mixed media. Methods of composition, color theory, color mixing, and relevant work by other artists are explored through studio time, demonstrations and one-on-one instruction. Participants are welcome to bring reference photos, collages, objects and ideas to work from. Open to all skill levels.
