Here's a description of each of our special projects:
Project One-"Something To Crow About"
The first painting will explore the different ways to use plaster in setting up your paintings background. We will examine the difference between a rich, heavy texture with large cracks vs a smoother plaster with tiny cracks and look at when we might want to use them. We will create a mixed media painting using either your own photograph or a copyright free image.
What Will You Learn In This Class....Project One
Using the basic techniques learned in project One we will create a hard, plaster surface for a new acrylic abstract painting..
We will move from random, impulsive and spontaneous movements of the brushes to a more focused approach of our composition as we edit and design the piece, bringing it to a gorgeous finish. I want to encourage you to explore the idea of using using different colors, patterns and additional techniques that allow you to express your unique personality.
