*Student Level: Over the past two decades of writing art technique books, I have found that many artists stick with what they know works and they don’t venture too far from that. In order to grow and experience more adventure in painting, even advanced painters need to push themselves to discover new techniques. Therefore, I love to place all levels together. The beginners can help the more advanced students see with fresh eyes and the advanced students learn to take an alternative route. I find it a win-win for everyone.

This unique painting class uses various fibers to move the paint and make implied textural layers. The student will learn how to use transparent colors to create vibrant layers, how to add shadows for depth, unusual ways to incorporate stencils and some other fun painting materials that will be used to add to the composition. You will learn how to add color without covering and what to use for texture and opacity. In this course you will learn about color mixing, how to create transparent layers, composition tips and making transparent collage papers. The newcomer to painting will find this mixed media course welcoming and friendly. The advanced student will discover some new ways to add unusual textures to any style of acrylic painting. Even oil and watercolorists can translate these techniques to their preferred style and medium.
