“Cloud Clinic” Acrylic workshop SAC (Mar 29 2018)

March 29 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM


Is your head in the clouds?

atmospheric demo

If you want to learn how to create depth, softness and dimension in your clouds then the Cloud Clinic is here to help!  You will learn a variety of techniques to help you master the magnificent cloud!

In this acrylic workshop we will create an assortment of cloud studies highlighting various exercises instead of working towards a finished painting.  Demo’s will be given throughout the day covering glazing, layering and color-mixing techniques. By using a limited color palette we will build transparent and opaque layers to ultimately capture the beautifully expressive “Wild Blue Yonder”.

Study Examples

CC assortment

In this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Use matte medium to create layered glazes
  • Vary brush strokes and pressure in order to achieve soft edges
  • Control your color palette
  • Breakdown the “confusing” cloud mass into smaller shapes
  • Develop form by balancing shadow and highlight
  • Gain confidence in your clouds!

All levels welcome!  This workshop is a great introduction to acrylic for the beginner.   More advanced artists can fine tune their skills and really push themselves.  The class environment is always open and supportive to whatever skill level you are at.

There will be a 45 minute meal break mid-workshop.

WOW!  All the artist-grade GOLDEN brand acrylic paint and GOLDEN brand acrylic medium is included?
How wonderful is that?!
