Class 12B: Experimental Acrylics Carol Nelson

Acrylics are the only fine art medium in which there is seemingly no limit to the number of textural effects you can achieve. In this class will you will experiment with several different acrylic textures, with an emphasis on abstract design and collage. We will review materials that can be added to acrylic paint to create interesting and unique effects. You will be making your own collage papers and experimenting with different metal foils.
This class will include color theory and abstract design.  My "Grab Bag" painting method will take the mystery out of abstract composition.  With this technique, you can be working on several paintings simultaneously, each at a different level of completion, and still keep your head on! See Carol' Work at
All skill levels $74

  Remember, you must register
