This workshop offers a wonderful opportunity to learn to paint more expressively and personally. Discover ways to increase the tendency to experiment, loosen up, and be more expressive. Learn how to use a variety of techniques to bring more life to your paintings and more enjoyment to your painting process. This workshop is open to participants with all levels of experience. No experience with acrylic painting is required. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to learn from talented Jacqui. Topics include:

  • Preparing canvases with texture, collage, stamping, and mono-printing
  • Stages of a painting (from inception to gallery)
  • Paint application of layering and edges (toning, underpainting, impasto, rubbing in color, glazing, veiling, faking underpainting)
  • Developing personal ‘voice’ and meaning of your artwork
  • Dealing with "mistakes", your inner critic, and loosening up
  • Making changes and finishing a painting

Cost: $100 CoArts members $135 non–members. Members sign-up first and have priority. Any remaining spots will be open to non–members later. One scholarship is available to CoArts members; contact the workshop chair privately if you wish to be considered.
