We are thrilled to welcome author and artist Seth Apter to Gilding the Lily! What a treat to have this east coast talent here on the west coast in early 2014. We are making this class announcement early, as we've already had people wanting to sign up.
In his 3-hour workshop, Seth will introduce you to a series of techniques that combine to create complex, textured backgrounds that can be applied to any substrate and used in a multitude of art projects. You will learn ways to use gesso to build-up visual texture, layering strategies for acrylic paint, and techniques to add complex color layers with your own recipe for acrylic glazes. Finally, additional techniques to add visual interest to your backgrounds will also be introduced. While the workshop is technique driven, we will be applying these techniques to a series of different substrates, including wood panels and watercolor paper. In the end, you will leave with a number of completed backgrounds, ready for you to use for artwork, journal pages, and many other artistic projects.
Class size limited to 12 students.
