Date / Time:
To be determined / From 9h45 AM to 4h00 PM
Level : beginner and intermediate
Duration: 5 hours
All included ( You bring your lunch and your good mood )
Want to play with colors and explore fluid acrylics?
This workshop is for you!
Alongside an experienced artist (myself), you'll explore the possibilities offered by the fluid acrylic casting technique.
Fluid acrylics adhere to many rigid supports.
They dry slowly, usually between 24 and 48 hours, depending on ambient humidity and paint consistency.
A day to play with colors and follow the inspiration of the moment.
You'll discover the steps to follow to prepare your canvas properly.
You'll learn how to prepare your colors with a homemade medium recipe.
You'll learn 2 acrylic pouring techniques.
Each participant will make 2 canvases (12'' x 12'').
This workshop offers a creative exploration that will appeal to everyone, from beginners to artists at heart. It will also appeal to anyone wishing to explore a new medium and their creativity.
No specific skills are required, other than a willingness to play, let go and let yourself be surprised...
I will lead this workshop
I've been immersed in the visual arts for 31 years, including 4 in fluid art.
