FLUID PALETTE KNIFE PAINTING WORKSHOP

Who: Adults

When: Saturday, October 21 | 12-3pm (3 Hours)

Pricing: $75 

1 Day Workshop

All Supplies Included

 

Description

Back by popular demand! This new palette knife technique involves both heavy and fluid acrylic paints. We will use only 2-3 heavy body acrylics (mostly white). As you paint, you will blend in vibrant colors to the heavy body white acrylic paint with fluid acrylic colors. The blending is done right on the canvas. It goes quickly. Don’t worry about it being perfect... that’s part of the beauty of palette knife painting! Mistakes can be happy mistakes! Once the background is complete, we'll let it dry a bit and then add the composition and details. The texture and mood you’ll get will be amazing! All supplies are included for this 1 day workshop: canvas, palette knives, paint, and disposable aprons. Limited spots are available for this workshop... don't wait to book until it's too late!

Using the “Four Treasures,” the brush, ink stick, ink stone and the paper, you will learn the techniques to create the “Four Gentleman,” the bamboo, orchid, plum and chrysanthemum. Each “Gentleman” introduces a new stroke or idea and reinforces techniques already learned. Continual demonstrations will be provided throughout the workshop along with individual attention. This workshop will concentrate on learning the brush strokes to create the bamboo. All supplies will be provided (+ $10 due at booking).

 

Linda Schultz has an MS in Art Education and a Certificate of Completion from the prestigious Art Form Gallery for Studies in Chinese Brush Painting.
