Joy of Acrylic Painting: Expressive Painting Techniques with Mixed Materials with Annie O' Brien Gonzales
Tuesday – Thursday | 10:00am – 3:00pm | $325 August 21 – 23, 2018 (Students must bring required materials on their own.) Three mixed projects from Annie’s new book, “The Joy of Acrylic Painting”. Visiting artist Annie O’Brien Gonzales returns to Ah Haa to teach a three-day workshop that explores new and exciting mixed-media techniques from her new book, “The Joy of Acrylic Painting.” Students will begin with a day of “aerial abstraction” – learning to translate an aerial photo, such as a Google map, into an expressive, abstract mixed-media painting. Next up, “expressive mixed media figure” – a figurative collage incorporating a painted, mixed-media background, photos, paint, and collage paper of all kinds. On the final day of class, students will create a “landscape collage,” translating a landscape scene into shapes and colors and then expressing the mood with collage and paint. This is an entry-level class for beginning and experienced painters, alike.
