Abstract Acrylics Painting Step-by-Step Workshop with Catron Wallace
Harpeth Art Center and Gallery
Sat, Aug 17 10:00 am


In this workshop, participants will be guided step-by-step through Catron's process to re-create THIS abstract painting in her unique style, with the use of acrylic paints, making washes and when to use water, how to create translucency and using mediums, along with learning various ways to obtain textures. Students will learn how to achieve layering with brushes, cards or palette knives, paper, fiber, and other materials.  Students will be using brushes, and possibly pallet knives and acrylic mediums to create textures, layers, value, push and pull, contrast and about the areas in a good abstract painting. Catron will work with each student throughout the workshop. She will share the fundamentals of mixing colors, application techniques and using complementary colors in through the process. Catron will encourage students to explore and experiment with style, form. Canvas and Paints are included in workshop. Bring some old brushes along. A 16x20 canvas is supplied, but you are welcome to bring your own canvas if you would like to, no wider than 24" in width to allow for space and elbow room. Students often will bring a few of their favorite paint colors to incorporate. **Bring your lunch and beverages***
