These two young ladies, Julie and Julie, joined Margaret and me for an acrylics adventure. You can tell from their faces that they are happy with their beginnings.
We are planning to get together again and invite others to join us.
Here's the plan:
We are meeting at my studio at The Art Studio at Arianna's (across from MiraBay) on Monday evening, August 8, at 6 pm. Bring a canvas, gel medium (your choice of matte or glossy), a palette, acrylic paints, brushes and a palette knife. That wonderful Golden's Retarder will help to keep your paints wet.
Bring multiple photos of your favorite subject, whether person, place or thing. Bring laser printer copies in black and white (grayscale) in various sizes to arrange on your canvas to help with your composition. We will wet these and attach them with the gel medium. Then, we will paint over them to create a multi-media piece of art.
It promises to be a great time with creative juices flowing.
To join Margaret, Meg, Julie, and Julie, give me a call at 813-766-5040 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost is $35 for a two-hour class. (And plan to stay longer as it seems we always get caught up and continue until we reach a good stopping place.)
NOTE: Margaret and I are headed to the Nature Printing Society National Conference in Colorado on Sunday and will return the following Saturday so emails will probably not be read during that week.
