Fee: $165.00
Two Day Workshop
All Levels – Open to Public

Now is your chance to find out with hands on experience about the revolutionary new slow-drying Golden OPEN Acrylics. OPEN Acrylics act similar to oil paints, clean up with soap and water and have an extended working time, 4-15 times longer, for more control of blending and overall manipulation of the paint. They are very versatile and can used in combination with other Golden acrylics, mediums and gels allowing artists a wide range of exploration.

Students will have hands on experience working with OPEN Acrylics, mediums and gels and will learn how to prepare surfaces, blend, mix and more. OPENS are great for plein air painting and mono printing.  A simple mono print demo will be included on a jelly plate.
All materials, paints, mediums and gels provided and included in the workshop fee.  Students will take home all work and samples created in this workshop.

Students should bring a lunch or snack each day.
