Sweeten the Surface: Adding Texture to Acrylics

 

The versatility of acrylics is endless and this workshop will expose you to a variety of techniques utilizing all manner of acrylic mediums, tools, and techniques. Layering is emphasized and this necessitates the need for drying time between layers. This leads us to the most wonderful aspect of this workshop: WORKING IN A SERIES!

 

You will be working on three pieces at once, building on one piece and then another. Spontaneity and joy will flow! Bring your ideas, your images, your spirit of wonder and experimentation.
