Painting Textures and Layers

This class is a drop-in class: free to members and $20 for non-members.


Building of layers is a skill all artists need to master. In art, it makes all the difference! Layers of color and texture create beautifully radiant work. Once we learn this skill we can put it to use across a variety of mediums; acrylic painting, collage, mixed media, even photography!

We will be using acrylic paints and a variety of household tools to create our layers and textures. We will also incorporate gel printing.
