Acrylic Workshop – The Medium is the Message
Have you ever wondered how to bring natural elements and mixed media together with acrylic painting and color?
This workshop will focus on the many Golden mediums available to artists. Working with these media, the workshop will bring fibers, paper, sand, powders and various inks, paint, drawing and mark making tools into the acrylic painting media. Exploring inks, paint and media together, this workshop is an exploration of media and technique. Participants are encouraged to explore media as message. Artists will bring their own images and ideas to the workshop and infuse these with the wild world of Golden media available to them.
Working from the intuitive side of our creativity, this workshop will explore Golden Acrylic Media and a host of mixed media inclusions. Participants will:
learn how to stain and include paper as a rich colorful layer in more complex work.
learn how to include dirt, leaves, metals, pictures and a host of things in paintings.
develop layers within an acrylic work with different media like charcoal, ink, and pencil.
Understand the variety of Golden Media and how it can be used in a mixed media work.
Learn how to create substrates and base textures to paint on top of.
