THE WORLD OF ACRYLICS WORKSHOP
With so many paints, gels, mediums and grounds for acrylic painters out there, walking into an art store is overwhelming and confusing. You often end up buying some cool looking product and then never use it as you don't know what to do with it. This workshop is in-depth coverage to teach you about what various acrylic paints, gels, pastes and mediums do - and save you money at the art store ensuring you buy the right product for your creative needs. As a Golden Artist Educator, Kate has done extensive training with Golden Paints and can help clear up any confusion you may have on the wide range of acrylic options for artists.
First half of the workshop is detailed explanation of what the products do while each participant makes themselves a convenient reference chart. Questions and answers throughout. The second part allows you to experiment with the products themselves to see what they do yourself.

As an art educator for GOLDEN paints, I have had extensive training on how to use these amazing products.

I will explain the difference between all of the acrylic paints and show you what their specific abilities are and why they were designed.
We will then have a question answer time to find out any other things you want to know about these products. Coffee, Tea and snacks provided.
