Description

Watermedia Abstractions


Tuesday – Thursday, 10:30am-4:30pm
September 24-26

In this 3-day workshop, students will paint textural collage substrates using three fluid acrylic colors. One surface will be enhanced with graphic shapes and painted over, one will be used as a substrate for a floral piece, and one will be developed into a rock formation. The textural elements used to create interesting patterns on the papers may be added back onto the painting as an enhancement.

Schedule:

Day 1: Paint a color wheel and create at least three substrates (rag watercolor paper) using a variety of textures and Golden fluid acrylics. Prepare Masa paper.

Day 2: Paint a floral which will be adhered to one of the substrates. Develop one of the substrates into a landscape using Masa paper.

Day 3: Use graphic shapes (circles, square, lines, etc.) to enhance the surface. Finish by painting positive and negative shapes. Students may bring reference materials for subject matter to be worked in.
