    MASTERING ACRYLICS with DAVID LANGEVIN

    Learn everything you need to know to master acrylic painting:  Do you have questions about the differences between oils and acrylics; which mediums to use; what quality or brand of paints are best; how to create great texture effects using gel mediums; which brushes are best for acrylics,...  
    This workshop is designed for artists with some painting experience in oils, acrylics, or even watercolors.  Acrylic paints are relatively new and how to use them effectively is still a challenge for many artists.  Techniques that are successful when using oil paints or watercolors do not often yield good results when applied to acrylic paints.  This is because the physical and chemical properties of the synthetic acrylic paints are unique.  
    In this workshop the focus will be on learning the specific properties of acrylics and how you can use them to achieve fantastic results.  Emphasis will be on mastering the materials and skills to help you be a better painter.  You will learn to master the medium and effectively apply glazes, veils, and impasto layers of paint.  Painting demos will also be featured.

    Come prepared to take notes, ask questions, and to paint

    APRIL 6 AND 7,  2024     Time:  9:30 am to to 4 pm.

         

          FEE: $180 members, $200 non members

    LANDSCAPE POETRY IN PASTEL, with JANE ROMANISHKO


    Pastel is the most pure, immediate, easy to use medium that will outlive oils, acrylics and any other materials. And if you handle it right, it will create the most luminous paintings.

    “Landscape Poetry in Pastel” workshop is designed for strong beginners or students who want to improve their pastel and landscape painting skills.
    In this easy going and informative 2 day workshop you will learn all about soft

    pastels and different grounds that will produce very different effects. After learning about materials, we’ll move on to mark making, layering, underpainting and will do lots of exercises as well as small paintings with landscape elements in the first day.

    Next day we'll dive into the painting landscape from the reference. We'll discuss good design, colour temperature and accurate drawing. Demo will be done for landscape, but principals apply for any subject matter. Using important blocks of painting, such as composition, value pattern, color scheme, texture and edges, we will bring your references to life. Good photos are essential.

    MAY 25 and 26, 2024 Time:  9:30 am  to 4 pm.  

                  FEE: $140 members, $180 non members
