Have you ever wanted to paint, but were not sure where to start? Do you paint in acrylics but think you could have better control of your materials? Join Corrine Loomis Dietz, Certified GOLDEN Working Artist, for this intense, 5 hour workshop geared toward making sense of the technical aspects of acrylics and finding your groove. Learn tips to control the brush, palette, color mixing and drying times. We will explore a triad of Fluid Acrylics, mixing with polymer mediums to develop an understanding of modern color mixing. Utilizing a series of exercises, we will discover the beautiful versatility of fluids as we pursue layers of washes and glazes. In the second half of the workshop, we use Heavy Body acrylic to extend the color with Gels to develop textures and alter luminosity. With this thicker viscosity of paint, we will explore the mineral (inorganic pigments) to examine opacity, color mixing and impasto techniques. Expect loads of information, money saving tips and new reference for your work. I recommend this hands-on event for any artists needing a refresher or a full jump start into acrylics.
Media: Acrylics. Skill level: all skill levels welcome. Age Range: 15 and up.

Cost for the one day workshop is $95 for CAM members and $105 for non-members. Class size: min. 6/max. 12. Registration ends November 1, 2016.  For online registration visit or contact the Art Education Dept. at (541) 267-3901.
