“Hills, Valleys & Horizons” Acrylic Workshop July SJ

July 23, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM


Hills Valleys Horizons_small

Landscapes have a way of drawing us in.  We can’t help but imagine what it’s like wandering through the grassy knolls, mountain paths or emerald hills in a painting.  It is important to be able to capture the subtlety of light and atmosphere in any vista.  The artistry behind a successful landscape begins with foundation.  This full-day acrylic workshop will focus on creating depth and atmosphere in a simple landscape (pictured above). Demo’s will be given throughout the day covering glazing, layering and color-mixing techniques. By using a limited color palette of only four (you heard right – four!) colors we will build transparent and opaque layers to ultimately capture the receding grandeur of a beautiful valley.

class 6All 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.
